If architecture is wrapped in moving light thus relativized, charged, how does it maintain it's ground?
Consisting of abstract two-dimensional structures the projection creates a new layer on the building, which is "floating" over the surface and is "fractured" at its edges ...
The video is "folded" and obtains an eventful quality which allows - dependent on the viewing angle and point in time - spontaneous and unexpected spacial constellations.
“Folded space” is created as an experiment – the sculptural quality of architecture is being emphasized and exceeded by the projected layer provoking a “battle” for spatial dominance - the spectator approaching the building is drawn into this conflict.
