Magnetic and Coders

A kinetic installation and audiovisual live performance
In Collaboration with Robert Schnüll & Dirk Erdmann

The installation and live performance „Magnetic and Coders“ messes with the viewer‘s perception of space and creates an immersive experience through the synergy of sculpting soundscapes. Stacked cubes construct and deconstruct the room continuously with kinetic movement and are enhanced by a projection mapping. A cinemascope projection surface accommodates further reactive visuals. The purpose of the project was to explore the connections, possibilities and beauty of material properties, technologies and sound.

Visuals

The narrative of the motion design tells the story from the smallest atom up to the highest dimension in an abstract way. The visuals were established in a mix of processing generated sketches as well as footage recordings composed of microscopic structures. The result documents the interaction between code and physical phenomena.
