Giordano Bruno marks with his work „The shadow of the Ideas“ a key work in the tradition of the art of the memory. He proposes a philosophy that unites the combinatorial of knowledge (attached to the ideas of Ramon Lull of the twelfth century) with the force of the imaginary, thus combining determinism with the unknown and unpredictable of the cosmos, the soul and its relation to knowledge. Citing Eduardo Vinatea’s introduction of the 2009 edition of Umbris Idearum, as a discursive architecture of the soul.
For this installation the bunker K101 of Cologne, Ehrenfeld is transformed into a theater of memory, operating the spaces as if of the imaginary palace of Giordano Bruno was treated, where each ray of light, each color and each stone was placed by the same Giordano Bruno. The accumulated wisdom of Umbris Idearum grows as an autonomous organism, transforms, interferes, modulates and makes each see more difficult to decipher.
The relationship between place, literature, thought is where on stage, creating a texture that reflects the complexity of woven reality.
The sound is composed by Ali Chakav and during one night a sound performance of 6 hours was performed with the participation of Ali Chakav (electronics), Rahel Pötsch (Cello) and Axel Pulgar (electronic) at the Bunker K101 at the Körnerstr. in Cologne.

Founded in 2004 by Susanna Schoenberg at the Cologne Academy of Media Arts, Re-active platform is also the name of an artistic production formula for letting different conceptual, material-specific and technical design approaches work together free from a hierarchical model.
In this case the installation at the Contemporary Art Fair reacts on sound from space, by vibrating the foil and the laser drawing in a feedback circuit of observation and monitoring acoustical and optical signals. Computer vision custom software, camera, microphone, motors, structure, reflecting foil, custom software for laser drawings, laser-beam.

is an intervention in a private forest at Germany-Belgium’s border consisting in custom mades boxes that alludes to the peep show apparatus from the 17th century.
These works were showed as part of the FIELDSITE Project of Achim Mohné‘s and the Seminar Unsite Temporalities at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne in der the border between Germany and Belgium. http://h406.khm.de/?p=173
By installing a high reflective mirror wall in the forest, now the interruption would be in the visual level by creating a repetition of the seen taking reference to the text Foucault’s observations in his publication “Other Spaces” and his thoughts on a idea of heterotopias
radio receivers in tuned in random frequencies an acoustical interruption of the natural surrounding creating a surreal situation.

Based on Dgiga Vertov’s manifesto Kino Auge , Cine Ojo 2.0 approaches the same idea by using an approach of a generative documentary, where the process of montage is realized by the combination of algorithmic driven movements and the interaction driven by the curiosity of the visitor of the installation.
