In a very successful year for our projection sculpture RADIX, we traveled around the globe and hosted exhibitions in Tokyo, Berlin, Vienna and Potsdam. We are very proud to have had all these opportunities and made many new friends along the way. Many thanks to all the people who made this possible and supported us on our trips or in setting up the exhibitions. Therefore, we would be very happy to come back soon! The exhibitions we attended are:
„DIGITAL#ER S#CHOC#K“ – Goethe Institut, Tokio (13.02.2018)
„UNDER THE RADAR“ – Museumsquartier, Wien (24.05.2018)
„48H NEUKÖLLN“ – Kindl Kesselhaus, Berlin (22.06.2018)
„ART CAMP“ – Villa Francke, Potsdam (26.10.2018)
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.

Xenorama at the 50th anniversary of the Burg Herzberg Festival! A collage of emotions covering 50 years of the festival, captured on site and projected onto huge trees.
We are honoured to meet and document the makers and driving forces behind this cult event in southern Germany. Even a backstage dog posed to perform in the virtual field.

Our very own Lorenz Potthast represented Xenorama at this years International Symposium on Electronic Arts (ISEA) in Durban, South Africa. He was involved into various workshops, projection art and presentations! He took the opportunity to meet a lot of old friends from his term abroad and also to make some new friends along the way.

Good evening from Tokyo! We just won the New Face Award at this year’s Japan Media Arts Festival (JMAF) in Tokyo with our augmented projection sculpture Radix. We are now looking forward to the opening ceremony and the exhibition at the beautiful New National Theatre Tokyo, an Opera tower in the middle of the Shinjuku district. It will run from friday, 14th September and contains a lot of other exciting works and media art. Many thanks どうも有難うでざいます to everyone who helped us getting here.
We are very happy to be back in Tunisia and take part in the SEE Djerba festival. Thanks to all the wonderful people here and the great support!
So, let’s see what we can develop here in Houmt Zouk… the abandoned Roman well — the B’ir Ar-rumi بئر الرومي — appears to be an excellent site, we may have to clean up and polish this beauty first though…
