Figures, data, averages, errors, surveys, risk assessments: today we are called to deal more and more with the numbers and even if we can delegate these concerns to others, learning to use and understand the numbers helps us to orient ourselves in the world and take conscious decisions.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

Summer, sweltering temperatures, sunshine, and …refreshing mist? This unlikely mixture was recently staged by the Effektschmiede on the square in front of the science centre phaeno in Wolfsburg, Germany. In intervals of half an hour, the four beds of reeds surrounded by seating areas that reach out of the minimalistic, grey square are enveloped in manmade, water-based fog – we do not rely on artificial, chemical fog. The environs are thereby turned into climatic microcosms of their own: the temperatures go down and humidity-levels rise.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

During November and December, the Effektschmiede joined the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's North America tour, operating two 3MTC Tesla Coils which were synchronised to the Orchestra's hard rock jingles. Night after night, the coils and the lights created stunning optics on stage.

Effektschmiede GmbH 1 July 2020

Recently we were visited by Noah Levi, together with the production crew of Jive Germany, to film the music video for his new song ‘Sonne oder Regen’. The Effektschmiede Team pulled out all the stops and took charge of lighting, set design, and the production of rain, fog and lightning effects. Noah’s music video dropped on Friday the 19th of July and today we’re sharing our very own making-of video. Noah Levi – Sonne oder Regen 
Special thanks go to Nicolas Vargas for his great help with the making-of video.

Running exhibits remotely through www or mobile app

Almost 13 years ago the idea to put some of our exhibits online was born in Hiša eksperimentov. The goal was to have Hiša’s doors open even if the physical ones were closed.

Visitors can interact and take control of the exhibits through www or our phone app. Only one person can interact with one exhibit at a time while others wait in line.

The activity was officially launched in 2009 when the EU commissioner Dr Janez Potočnik started the very first online exhibit in Hiša from his office in Brussels.
