Austerlitz

Based on Sebald‘s Novel Austerlitz. This audiovisual installation with two screens jutting into the space, depicts Austerlitz’s passion for the mighty architecture of railway stations and the growth in logistics at the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century. He is particularly interested in Antwerp railway station, with the neighbouring diamond district and the Nocturama of the nearby zoo. The installation projects dominantly, architecturally into the space and as such refers to its role models.
Moving collages of the railway station building pick up on tis era of logistics but also the condition of restlessness and inner disquiet. The video sequence, generated from photos, creates a confusing effect: vanishing points and perspectives are broken up, sequences appear displaced, the images seem to fold and break like a journey through time and memory.

As part of a mid-term project developed with student, I worked together with Prof. Heide Hagebölling from 2010 with the literature adaption of W.G. Sebald Austerlitz by defining 9 Station as a dramatically resource. media-scenography.org

2-CHANNEL AUDIOVISUAL INSTALLATION

Protean Territories

2013

Fusing “traditional” acoustic instruments with live-controlled electronics, three composers and instrumentalists, Frank Gratkowski, Academy-Fellow Tim O’Dwyer, and Udo Moll, have created three completely different “hybrid instruments,” which will be presented against a backdrop of video and light. Protean Territories is a multidimensional art event, breaking away from the uniformity and focus of the classical concert space. The concert design is based on shifting video feeds that create different yet complimentary spaces out of light and image.
Premiere: 17th June 2015. New Talents space, Cologne – Germany.

For the scenography a conceptual approach for the inner and outer space of Orpheus was built. Since the external physical world where David Moss would perform on space was built by a triangle platform, the internal Orpheus‘s world was represented by projections of generative graphics, interacting with the singer’s movements.

[DEUTSCH]

Eine Kammeroper über den Mythos von der Macht der Musik.

Für das Bühnenbild wurde einen Raum für Orpheus entworfen, die die innere Welt und äussere psychische Welt darstellte. Mit 2 Projektoren von der Decke aus wurde diese äussere Welt mit Wortbilder und abstrakte Strukturen als Echtzeitgrafik dargestellt. Diverse Programme wurden für die unterschiedliche Szenen erstellt, die während des Stücks aufgerufen werden konnten.
