From the moment on that Henning Lederer got to know Kahn’s poster “Man as Industrial Palace” in 2006, he had the idea to animate this complex and strange way of explaining the functions of a body. He wanted to continue Fritz Kahn’s act of replacing a biological with a technological structure by transferring this depiction with the help of motion graphics and animation. In addition to the moving images, as a framework, Henning created a cabinet for his work including a mixture of old and new technology. This new version of the “Industrial Palace“ is an interactive installation for the audience to interact with – and by this to explore the different cycles of this human machinery.
Its creator Henning Lederer is a young German artist who studied Visual Communication at the Fachhochschule Düsseldorf (University of Applied Sciences) in Germany from 2001 until 2006. He’s won an output award this year for this incredible project. Congrats Henning!
