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.

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.

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.
