SKALAR in Amsterdam’s Gashouder from January 10 to February 5
In January 2020, light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray presented a new 360° version of their monumental audio-visual kinetic art installation SKALAR. Since its debut in Berlin in 2018 and the international premiere in Mexico City in 2019, SKALAR has delighted over a hundred thousand people and reshaped the landscape of modern art exhibitions.
SKALAR will reside in the iconic Gashouder in Amsterdam from January 10 to February 5. As a special highlight, Christopher Bauder and Kanding Ray will play several exclusive SKALAR live shows — an expanded and intensified concert version of the animation cycle. The artists will bring choreographed light and electronic music to life in real-time. Every live show is a unique experience.
This large-scale artistic production is a collaboration between our Berlin’s design and art studio WHITEvoid, Amsterdam electronic music promoters Audio Obscura and one of Amsterdam’s most important cultural venues, Westergas.

DEEP WEB is returning to the iconic KRAFTWERK BERLIN in July 2019!
DEEP WEB is a monumental immersive audiovisual installation and live performance created by light artist Christopher Bauder and composer and musician Robert Henke. Presented in the spectacular industrial venue of the former power plant, DEEP WEB will plunge audiences into a mesmerizing experience of space and time.
Until now, DEEP WEB has only been shown to the public twice for a short time: as a five-day preview during CTM Festival 2016 at KRAFTWERK BERLIN and at Fête des Lumières in Lyon in December of the same year. In summer 2019, DEEP WEB will return to its iconic birthplace, where Berliners and city guests will have six weeks to take part in this breathtaking art experience.

ELECTRIC MOONS FOR THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF PLOT MAGAZINE
ELECTRIC MOONS presented during the 10th anniversary of PLOT magazine is an immersive kinetic installation that celebrates the power of light and lightness in the magnificent settings of St. Maria Church in Stuttgart, Germany. The large-scale art piece is a new colour version of Christopher Bauder’s first large-scale installations, this time specially constructed for the imposing church environment — a setting where an interplay of light and space has been a foundational experience for centuries.
The weightless light balloons of ELECTRIC MOONS are moving precisely and effortlessly in the centre of the deemed church, synchronised with minimal music and surrounded by the mesmerised audience. For this project, the creative direction of WHITEvoid was wholly supported by the technical expertise and latest products of Kinetic Lights — a new advanced version of their helium-filled Balloon adjusted to a precise ground-based network of winches.

SKALAR – REFLECTIONS ON LIGHT AND SOUND
SKALAR is a large-scale art installation that explores the complex impact of light and sound on human perception. Light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray give an audio-visual narration of radiant light vector drawings and multi-dimensional sound inside the pitch-dark industrial space of Kraftwerk Berlin. By combining a vast array of kinetic mirrors, perfectly synchronized moving lights and a sophisticated multi-channel sound system, SKALAR reflects on the fundamental nature and essence of basic human emotions. With its titular Turmoil theme, CTM Festival 2018 sets the perfect environment to launch the artistic venture of SKALAR.
ART EXHIBITION: 27.01. – 25.02.2018
6 LIVE PERFORMANCES: 04.02.2018 + 24.02.2018 + 25.02.2018

STALACTITE – Art Light Installation at Bright Brussels Festival 2018
STALACTITE is the monumental art light installation created by light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Boris Divider. The immense structure composed of 360 light fixtures resembles a inverted pyramid network. It floats in the space and invites spectators to free their minds and enter the meditative world of STALACTITE. The layers of light create pulsating light animations generating complex shapes and light patterns which are directly synchronized with the electronic score.
The structure oats above the public. It invites the spectators to enter the meditative audio-visual world. The visitors gather beneath STALACTITE and become part of the installation. The sequential, minimalist and progressive audio-visual journey that STALACTITE takes people on, runs continuously in a loop so each visitor can enter or exit at any time.

WHITEvoid is proud to present their 1st collaboration with High Scream at Hï Ibiza for the seasons closing party 2017. Hï is the latest addition to the Ibiza club scene and provides state of the art production technology on the Island. We were happy to be invited by High Scream creative director Romain Pissenem to design and program a kinetic light installation for the grand season finale. We specifically developed a kinetic ceiling including 30 movable round mirrors and 30 kinetic mirror balls and LED lights. All kinetic elements were targeted with 30 Robe Pointe moving lights in full motion to create vivid light beam sculptures in mid air. KINETIC LIGHTS provided the high precision motor systems and custom software for this unique spectacle.
