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.

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.

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.

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..
