Richard talks about the process of composing (German)

In a short radio interview with the SWR2, our very own Richard Oeckel talks about the process of composing the music for large-scale projection mappings. He elaborates on the special team that he forms with Tim Heinze as well as the process of realising audiovisual ideas from scratch. In the special case of the show WALLS OF PERCEPTION, the topic of working with a mix of real and software-based instruments is also a crucial aspect. Enjoy listening to the interview!

Projection Mapping Workshop at “Lichtcampus Wismar”

Team at Weltkulturhaus
Welterbehaus

Last week we had the chance to hold a workshop at Lichtcampus Wismar and show the workflow of a typical facade Projection Mapping on the example of the Unesco Welterbehaus Hansestadt Wismar. Lorenz Potthast held the workshop and extended his actions and experiences in the education sector. Also check out his biography to experience his other efforts and tasks in this field.

We think that the results are awesome especially regarding that the workhop only went for two days. Thanks to the students who took part in the workshop, places that helped us (Lilja Walker Möbeldesign, Das Boot Wismar e. V.) and the whole Lichtcampus team.

Meet the Indigenous of the Himalayas

Xenorama is currently in the studio of the sculpturist Parul Thacker, based in Mumbai, India. Parul specialises in capturing unprecedented realms between our perceptional grid in form of hypertangible plastic pieces. These serve as a foundation for projected portraits of indigenous people from the Himalayas and are set into motion by dropping a stone into a large basin. Tucked into ambiences of respective mountain ranges, audiovisual caustics and embers of resin, the encounter with distant souls is brought to life in individual fashion. One at a time.

To be exhibited and experienced in Calcutta, West Bengal.
