Bauhaus-University Weimar celebrated the 150th birthday of one of it’s founding fathers – the Belgian Artist, Designer and Architect Henry van de Velde – with an exhibition showing 24 visualizations of his architectural designs. Curator Norbert Korrek asked Stefan Kraus to present 24 vizualisations of van de Veldes architectural designs. Together with exhibition designers Michael Kraus and Tobias Dahl we created a multi-projection installation in the Oberlichtsaal of the Universitie’s main building – designed by Henry van de Velde.
My part was to create the sound design for the exhibition – something unobtrusive. Since a lot of video projectors were used to present the visualizations I composed a minimal soundtrack that was played through the eight projectors internal speaker – masking their fan noise to softly singing choirs …somewhere far away. So the whole atmosphere of the exhibition room was immersed into a decent divine singsong – emerging from the projector’s ventilation.
