Skalar by Christopher Bauder & Kangding Ray is a unique light and sound installation which makes perfect use of the incredible space at Kraftwerk Berlin. Theres still a chance to see the installation until 24th February an another coupld oe live performances are planned for the closing weekend.
“SKALAR” is a large-scale art installation by Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray that explores the complex impact of light and sound on human perception. Following a highly-successful collaboration between WHITEvoid, Kraftwerk, and CTM in 2016 with “Deep Web,” CTM 2018 Festival is pleased to host this next artistic venture within its titular Turmoil edition.
“SKALAR” is a central piece within light artist Christopher Bauder’s body of work, reflecting his deep fascination with light. Light and darkness as endless cycles of day and night define our perception of time and influence our emotions. In “SKALAR,” light is treated as a solid material that can be sculpted and shaped to architectural dimensions, evoking abstract emotional associations. Intertwined with musician and composer Kangding Ray’s tireless exploration of textures, rhythm, and sound design, the silence of darkness is filled with iridescent formations of spatial light and sound. Measuring 45m in length, 20m in width, and 10m in height, the generative luminous structure encompasses a perfectly synchronous interplay of 65 motorized mirrors, 90 moving lights, and a multichannel sound system – elevating creative possibilities to a whole new level.
Skalar exhibition and LIVE performances 24/25.02.
Installatin until Saturday, 25.02.2018
