Light and Sound Installation
Cinema of the former Gauforum, Weimar
pèlerinages, Kunstfest Weimar, TanzMedienAkademie
(see also "Dances")
The program of the TanzMedienAkademie brings together artists and choreographers/dancers. "condensare" was created in expectation of a choreography by Regina van Berkel to be done within the installation.
The ceiling of the site has a pattern of squares with the regular lighting for the space. 26 of these lights were replaced by fluorescent tubes sticking out of the ceiling pointing down. On the ground a dance floor was laid out with the the same size as the ceiling pattern. For each tube pointing down from the ceiling another tube pointing up into the same direction was placed on the floor. This way 26 imaginary connecting lines were created with only the beginnings and the ends of it visible. Evoking the electric field of an electric condenser they described the tension field of the site. Next to each lamp on the dance floor was a loudspeaker plus another 38 loudspeakers were laid out equidistantly along the walls of the space. A 64-channel sound composition moved over these loudspeakers.
The work could be experienced as an installation or at specific days as a part of a choreography with 6 dancers.
