(PHOTOS WILL FOLLOW SOON)
Inspired by the psychedelic art and philosophy of the 60s, the projection show “Walls of Perception” describes the mind-expanding journey of a fictive protagonist. Influenced by works of the OpArt and the progressive and experimental music of the time, the projection investigates how the perception of reality and our relation with media have changed since than and which long lasting role those times play until today.
Existing structures - represented by the architecture of the Karlsruhe City Palace - are shown, rearranged, changed and finally overcome. Kaleidoscopic spaces, otherworldly arrangements and seemingly impossible scenes end in an atmospheric representation of infinity.
