CLIENT: M:AI – MUSEUM FÜR ARCHITEKTUR UND INGENIEURSKUNST NRW
“Projection Ruhr” was opened on 18.11. in the “Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine” in Paris and could be seen until 8 February 09.
In a cooperation with the light artist Mischa Kuball and on behalf of the M:AI – Museum of Architecture and Engineering Art NRW, 235 MEDIA produced this exhibition dealing with the structure changes in the Ruhr conurbation since the IBA Emscher Park.
12 mobile video projectors (VMS and Beamover) project and move photos, texts and video clips exclusively onto the bottom of a 50meters x 7meters dimensioned slightly curved space. Three projectors then form a choreographic unit for each of one of the four major issues: industrial culture, industrial nature, art and architecture. This creates a steady flow of images to a sound collage by Thomas Small (Kreidler), which through higher-level themes such as “Aerial photographs”, “People” etc. receives a dramatical retainer. For the visitor the installation opens up the view onto the process of transformation in the Ruhr conurbation, offering ambient and emotional access to the topic.
