LICHTGRENZE – Light art installation for 25 years fall of the Berlin wall

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, WHITEvoid’s creative director Christopher Bauder and his brother Marc were commissioned by the City of Berlin to create an extraordinary light installation called LICHTGRENZE (Border of Lights).

From the 7th to the 9th of November 2014 the 15.3 kilometer frontier that once divided the city center was re-imagined in light by 8000 balloon lights all developed and produced by WHITEvoid. Running through the heart of Berlin, from Bornholmer Straße to the Oberbaumbrücke, the installation was stretching past the Mauerpark, along the Berlin Wall memorial on Bernauer Straße through to the Brandenburg Gate, over Potsdamer Platz to Checkpoint Charlie and on to the East Side Gallery.

More than 1 Million people was taking part in the choreographed and televised balloon release event in the streets of Berlin on the last day of the installation.

Mendelssohn Effektorium – Conducting a virtual orchestra

Mendelssohn Mendelssohn Effektorium – Conducting a virtual orchestra
The Mendelssohn Effektorium is a technically complex, but user-friendly and exceedingly fun installation in the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Museum in Leipzig. The museum visitor finds himself in the role of a conductor. By swinging the conductor´s baton the visitor decides upon the tempo of a musical piece. One can also exclude instruments from the orchestra or change instrumentation and tonality to enjoy a very personalized version of Mendelssohn-Bartholdys work.
