KORRELLATION at Seasons of Media Arts Festival, Karlsruhe

Yesterday we celebrated the premiere of our new work »KORRELATION«, commissioned by ZKM – Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe for the »Seasons of Media Arts« Festival. The work explores the corellations between humans and an oceanic ecosystem that can be experienced in two different stages: through sensual perception on the one hand and data-driven visualisations on the other.
 
You can explore it for the next six weeks with beginning of dawn in Karlsruhe at Karl-Friedrich-Straße (inbetween market square and “Platz der Grundrechte”).
 
And for the nostalgic ones amongst you: In the background of some of the photos you might see a well known castle 😉

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.

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.

Exhibition opening of “Blicklichter” was a full success

We are still excited about the exhibition opening of “Blicklichter” last evening. The Rechenzentrum Potsdam is our home and it opened its doors for us to display our work and research we have done since 2014. The result is an exhibition which evolves around many narrative light installations, sculptures and the exclusive interactive projection »Cast Your Shadow«. The evening party included a lot of interesting talks, a concert by cayoux and a DJ performance by Phil Flash as well as food and drinks for everyone. As the evening was a full success, we want to thank all who joined in, made it possible and accompanied us along the way.

Interactive wall mosaic mapping “Cast Your Shadow”

For this year’s light festival “Unterwegs im Licht” in Potsdam, we created an interactive mapping upon a wall mosaic outside of our working and creative space, the Rechenzentrum. The famous art work is called “Der Mensch bezwingt den Kosmos” (“The human conquers the cosmos”) and was created by Fritz Eisel in 1972. It shows an astronaut hovering outside his spaceship in the earth’s orbit. The spectators can approach the installation and interact with the mosaic by touching it, dancing in front of it or form certain groups. We used and expanded knowledge from our other research and interactive projects to realise the installation.

This project was supported by the Landeshauptstadt Potsdam and the Localize e.V..
