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

Ein Lichtkunstprojekt zum Gedenken an 25 Jahre Mauerfall

Berlin, 10. Juli 2014 – Heute wurden im Roten Rathaus in Berlin im Rahmen einer Pressekonferenz die ersten Pläne zum 25. Jahrestag des Mauerfalls vorgestellt. Im Mittelpunkt der Feierlichkeiten zum 9. November wird in Berlin das Projekt LICHTGRENZE stehen, das auf der Idee der beiden Brüder Christopher Bauder und Marc Bauder basiert. Bereits 2011 entstand die Idee, die von der Robert-Havemann-Stiftung unterstützt und gemeinsam mit KULTURPROJEKTE BERLIN weiter entwickelt wurde.

Die LICHTGRENZE ist eine 15,3 Kilometer lange Lichtinstallation entlang des ehemaligen innerstädtischen Mauerverlaufs. Vom 7. bis 9. November 2014 wird mit ca. 8.000 weißen, beleuchteten Ballons der Verlauf der Mauer in Berlin mehr als nur sichtbar gemacht. WHITEvoid ist verantwortlich für das Design und die Produktion der Leuchtstelen.

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.
