Audiovisual performance “The Ever Changing Light”

After almost three months of Corona shutdown as well as many cancelled events and performances, we are happy to announce the audiovisual art performance and installation “The Ever Changing Light”. In the beautiful Potsdam Museum, we will scrutinize, construe and choreograph the maginificent work of the german artist Karl Hagemeister. The grand master used the roughness of the elements and especially the light setting of a scenery as central elements of his drawing style. Hence it is a delight for us to transport his oustanding paintings into a modern light and sound art work, which contains the animation and arrangement of the drawings and sketches as well as a live performance by Richard, Tim and Marcel at the premiere evening. We are looking forward to it and hope to see lots of faces again after the months of isolation.

You can witness the installation as well as the Hagemeister exhibition from August, 21st (12:00 a.m.) until August 23rd (8 p.m.) in the Potsdam Museum.

Trailer for BE\\LONGING

We feel honored and excited to be part of the Luminale in Frankfurt am Main. As this year’s festival topic is Digital Romance, our work “BE\\LONGING” explores human feelings, such as affection, reflection and affiliation in the context of fast growing and prima facie coldhearted digitalized spheres. Can romantic nuances be found in plain numerical series and abstract aesthetics?

Witness the large scale projection mapping upon the Alte Oper Frankfurt from the 12th-15th of march, 7-10 pm.

Augmented stride concert at the “Pergamonmuseum Berlin”

Experience our collaboration with the STEGREIF.orchester tonight at the Pergamonmuseum Berlin. The World Cultural Heritage Site, consisting of exhibits from the Orient and Occident (which you also can experience online here), is brought to life by a unique light and music show. The musicians will stride through the otherwordly scenario inside the world famous museum together with us. They present classical pieces as well as improvisational parts. We will support and interact with them by augmenting the space with classical illumination, virtual reality and projection mapping upon the exhibits.
Unfortunately the show is sold out already. If you are lucky you can buy left over tickets at the box office.
