Der Traum des Ingenieurs

Audio-Video project in collaboration with Stefan Kraus (MXZEHN)

The engeneer’s dream visualizes three compositions from Marc Sauter in a 9000 pixel wide sequencer structure. Like a “playhead” it moves continuously from one end of the gallery to the other. Six video projectors and six speakers show the playhead’s progress through three rooms. Like flotsam on a river the image and sound drifts by the audience.

The chronoligical progress of a music track is transfered to spatial proportions. Bars correspond to concrete gaps and every grain of sound finds its equivalent in a symbol. Since the video does not use any color there was no need to darken the room. Projection light and sunlight intertwine to a light and sound phenomenon.
