This was Lux Partum
An interactive light art installation.
Lux Partum is an interactive light and sound installation set in the Motorwerk Berlin. On the website lighting.stream, not only can visitors see and hear a livestream of the artwork, but they can also take control of the lighting installation from their home computer. Visitors will be able to transform their interpretation of the music into visual imagery by changing the look and atmosphere of the installation. Other visitors can watch the performance and ask themselves if the decisions of their fellow visitors reflect their own interpretation of the music, or if they want to interact differently with this installation. This level of interaction has profound impact during this current time of quarantine, not only connecting visitors safely to an experience outside their home but to other people who are similarly isolated.
People are visual beings who gather most of their information through their eyes. That is why so many live shows are supported with impressive staging and powerful lighting shows, to provide a visual representation of the music. The goal is always to allow participants to hear, see, and feel the music in a sense-encompassing package. They can then express themselves and share the singular experience with fellow guests through dance or discourse, strengthening it for everyone and becoming part of the experience themselves.
These real, haptic experiences are unfortunately not possible with the current pandemic state. This is why the lighting collective behind this artwork wants to involve the visitors as much as possible with the installation, thereby bringing the guests into the installation, attempting to reproduce a real shared experience.
Lux Partum was conceived and constructed by a group of artists and designers: Chris Moylan, Lars Musasch, and Andreas Schindler from Berlin and Matthias Schöffmann from Linz, Austria. The soundtrack is composed by Grammy-nominated DJ and Producer Paul van Dyk, also from Berlin. Technical equipment and installation was provided by TLT-Event AG.
Lux Partum goes online on May 8th and will be up for approximately 10 days. It can be experienced on the website lighting.stream. Paul van Dyk will perform a live set in the location on May 10 @ 19:00 CEST.
