Ponton's projects are often a work in progress. Prototypes are realised and developed in a process of simultaneous use. The resulting experiences allow to understand individual representations in the information society.
For us technology is not a means by itself. It is only a transport medium for communication in electronic public space. The center of our research is people.
Large scale media experiments like Piazza virtuale on documenta 9 as 100 days of interactive TV across Europe and Piazza virtuale in Japan proved our approach to be right and are now widely being recognised. In 1993 Ponton received the Deutsche Medienkunstpreis of Zentrums für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM) and the Siemens Kulturprogramms for our work in the field of interactive media.
