Maria and Ana de Alvear – “Ancestors” (world premiere)

Posted by Thomas Donga-Durach

Client: Haus der Musik Innsbruck

On March 11, 2022, the piece “Ahnen” for chamber orchestra and multi-screen video projection by Maria and Ana de Alvear was premiered in the Great Hall of Haus der Musik Innsbruck. The title “Ahnen” (Ancestors) plays with the double meaning of the German word involving both ancestors and foreshadowing.

Madrid-born composer Maria de Alvear lives in Germany and Spain and seeks to reveal connections between different cultures and different art forms in her works. Video works by her sister, visual artist Ana de Alvear, often serve as inspiration and components of the compositions.

“Ahnen” was written in 2007 for two voices, hurdy-gurdy and video, but has now been performed as an orchestral work by the Tyrolean Symphony Orchestra.

235 Media handled the elaborate projection mapping onto the two narrow acoustic side walls and the back wall behind the orchestra, making the performance an intense immersive experience.

Hito Steyerl “Power Plants”

Client: Dortmunder U

FLOWERS! Flowers in 20th and 21st Century Art

With 180 works by almost 50 artists*, the exhibition “FLOWERS! Flowers in 20th and 21st Century Art” offers a comprehensive overview of the motif of the flower in the art of the past and present century. The multi-channel video environment “Power Plants” by Hito Steyerl from 2019, set up by 235 Media in the Dortmunder U, is an example of the media-artistic further development of a theme that has inspired artists since the Baroque period until today.

The environment developed by Hito Steyerl consists of 18 LED video modules in different sizes from 50 x 100 cm to 100 x 200 cm and 18 LED text modules arranged in three steel frames. Each monitor-text unit is a “power plant” video sculpture created by neural networks. They form a virtual garden consisting of plants with ecological, medical and political powers. Here Hito Steyerl connects the concept of ruderal vegetation (from the Latin rudus ‘debris’), which sets itself up on fallow or devastated land that has been overused or kept free of vegetation, with the automated systems of reproduction and distribution of images and their effects on political systems that she has studied many times.

360°-Kino im Erlebniszentrum Naturgewalten Sylt

Kunde: Erlebniszentrum Naturgewalten Sylt

Syltdome – Deutschlands nördlichstes (360°) Kino

Mit der Errichtung des 360°-Kinos, dem „Syltdome“, erhielt das Erlebniszentrum Naturgewalten Sylt ein ganz besonderes Highlight. 235 Media übernahm die Konzeption von Innenraumgestaltung, Medientechnik, Raumakustik und Lichtdesign sowie die Planung der Lüftungstechnik.

Für das visuelle Erlebnis sorgen fünf 4K-Projektoren mit jeweils 5000 ANSI Lumen. Der Zuspielserver ist im Technikraum ca. 50 Meter vom Kino entfernt untergebracht und die Signalspeisung erfolgt latenzfrei und synchron. Ein ausgeklügeltes Beleuchtungskonzept sorgt in Abstimmung mit der Showsteuerung für „Ambient Sound & Light“ für die Wartezeit zwischen den Shows.

Im Lüftungskonzept kam das Quellluftprinzip zur Anwendung. Dabei strömt die Zuluft im Fußbodenbereich ein, die punktuell erwärmte Luft steigt hoch und wird abgesaugt. Für die Einhaltung gebotener Sicherheitsaspekte standen die Entrauchung, der Brandschutz und die Fluchtwegplanung im Fokus. Im Sinne der Barrierefreiheit wurden zwei Rollstuhlplätze eingeplant, Braille-Beschilderung und Bodenbelagswechsel für Menschen mit visuellen Beeinträchtigungen vorgesehen.

Um der visuellen 360°-Filmprojektion eine auditive Entsprechung zu geben, werden 31 Lautsprecher und vier Subwoofer nach dem Prinzip der Wellenfeldsynthese mit der Technologie des „Spacial Audio Designer – Processor (SAD-P)” gespeist. Dadurch entsteht der Eindruck einer objekthaften Wahrnehmung von Sound im Raum. Um eine störende Beschallung der umliegenden Ausstellungsbereiche zu vermeiden, wurden diverse Schallschutzmaßnahmen realisiert.

Neben den eigens produzierten Filmen für „Kräfte der Nordsee“ wird das Kino zusätzlich auch außerhalb der Öffnungszeiten als Full-Dome-Kino und Veranstaltungsort genutzt.

Ausstellungsbereich „Kräfte der Nordsee“

Das Erlebniszentrum Naturgewalten Sylt stellt auf 1500 Quadratmetern den vielfältigen Lebensraum Wattenmeer für Besucher*innen aller Altersstufen vor. Es zeigt die Vielfalt, Schönheit und Dynamik der Meere und Küsten, die Entstehung und Geschichte von Sylt, aber auch die Naturgewalten, die auf die Insel einwirken.

Die Erweiterung und Neugestaltung des 300 Quadratmeter großen Ausstellungsbereichs „Kräfte der Nordsee“ war eine logistische Herausforderung: Zunächst musste die Bestandsausstellung abgebaut werden, um Platz für ein Full-Dome-Kino, den „Sylt-Dome“ zu schaffen. Nach dem Bau des zylindrischen Kinosaals wurde die Ausstellung in runderneuerter Form wieder eingerichtet. Gemeinsam mit ntk hat 235 Media dem Ausstellungsbereich ein zeitgemäßes Erscheinungsbild gegeben und ihn technisch auf den neuesten Stand gebracht.

Mit Wellen und Wind stehen zwei Kräfte im Fokus, die permanent auf die Insel einwirken. In der mit vielen interaktiven Elementen versehenen Ausstellung werden diese Naturphänomene anschaulich erklärt. Eine der zentralen Medieninstallation ist der 10 Meter lange interaktive Wind-Wellenkanal, an dem der Zusammenhang von Windstärken und Wellenhöhen demonstriert wird. Sechs hinter dem Kanal montierte hochauflösende 75“-Monitore visualisieren naturgetreu verschiedene Wetterlagen und -stimmungen, während auf der darüber befindlichen Wand die jeweiligen Windstärken mittels Gobo-Projektionen angezeigt werden. An einem Bedienpult bestimmen die Besucher*innen die Wind- und Wellenverhältnisse.

Mit der Errichtung des 360°-Kinos, dem „Sylt Dome“, erhält das Erlebniszentrum Naturgewalten Sylt ein weiteres Highlight. ntk und 235 Media übernahmen in Kooperation mit der US-amerikanischen Firma Evans & Sutherland die Konzeption von Innenraumgestaltung, eingesetzter Medientechnik, Raumakustik und Lichtdesign sowie die Planung der Lüftungstechnik (in Zusammenarbeit mit Ingenieurbüro Pahl und Jacobsen aus Heide). Deutschlands nördlichstes Kino hat einen Durchmesser von 10 Metern und bietet 45 Besucher*innen Platz. Zusätzlich verfügt es über 2 Plätze für Rollstuhlfahrer*innen. Mittels 5 Projektoren und einem mit 31 Lautsprechern und 4 Subwoofern bestückten Spatial- Sound-System ermöglicht der Sylt-Dome immersive, dreidimensionale Kinoerlebnisse. Neben dem von uns angestoßenen und von TVN, Hamburg, eigens produzierten Film für „Kräfte der Nordsee“ wird das Kino zusätzlich außerhalb der Öffnungszeiten als Full-Dome-Kino und Veranstaltungsort genutzt.

Animation of the NRW state coat of arms

Client: moser_mahlstedt designbauwerk GmbH, Cologne

April 1, 2022

The Red House Monschau opened its revised and expanded permanent exhibition. The patrician house from the middle of the 18th century originally served as the home and central business premises of the Scheibler cloth-furnishing dynasty and today offers unique insights into late Baroque living and everyday life, pre-industrial cloth manufacturing processes and historical fashion trends as well as information about the wool route, which links the cultural heritage of the cloth-furnishing region in the three-country region around Aachen.

The new part of the exhibition is dedicated to the elaborate production of cloth with interactive monitor and projection installations – realised by 235 Media – and a media slider, vividly conveys the family’s trade relations and sheds light on the city’s history, which is interwoven with it. In a kind of practical application, elaborate weaving samples presented in pattern books can be projected vividly as waistcoats by visitors. An atmospheric experience is conveyed by an audiovisually staged projection that brings back to life the vaulted cellar supported by rusticated columns where wool was once washed.

Power2 Change – Mission energy transition

Client: Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe

14 August 2022 – 11 December 2022

In the presence of the Federal Minister of Education and Research Bettina Stark-Watzinger, the POWER2CHANGE – MISSION ENERGIEWENDE exhibition was opened at Henrichshütte Hattingen on Aug. 13, 2022. Four complex thematic islands explore the question of how new technologies can help to master the energy transition in order to stop climate change. The production of green electricity and alternative fuels, the use of CO₂ as a raw material for the chemical industry and many other topics are presented in a compact and comprehensible way with carefully curated exhibits.

235 Media designed and implemented four large interactive tangible tables, four analog hands-on exhibits, four digital solution games, two augmented reality stations and many other media stations using a wide variety of technologies for the traveling exhibition.

The exhibition will go to the Klimahaus Bremerhaven in December and will then be shown at five other locations in Germany.

The DASA Working World Exhibition in Dortmund is the permanent educational active facility of the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. The new temporary/travelling exhibition “Artificial Intelligence. An exhibition about people, data and control” is dedicated to the ambivalence of new developments in the field of artificial intelligence, which is gradually permeating the home, the working world and public space. Among other things, the exhibition uses various media stations to educate visitors about the opportunities and dangers of the new technology.

235 Media conceived the media technology, developed the screen design of the media stations, wrote software, built sensors, produced short films, realised the hardware and set it up in the exhibition.

Further stations of the exhibition are the Technical Museum Vienna, the Tekniska museet Stockholm, and the Parque de las Ciencias in Granada.

In the centre of Stuttgart, a new urban district is being built on an area of 85 hectares, the Rosenstein Quarter. In order to involve citizens in the planning process and to ask for their opinions and wishes, the City of Stuttgart has set up an exhibition space of approximately 225 square metres near the City Hall.

The central element is a 23 square metre “living city model” that serves as a projection surface for animations showing the various developments of the future quarter that can be selected on four tablets. Other attractive media stations include an “interactive screen”, an interactive quiz, several listening stations and an interactive photo wall where visitors can take selfies in front of pictures of the future quarter.

235 Media created the software, supplied and set up the media technology, including soft-edge projections and corona-compliant touchless interaction technology.

OUR STATE. 75 Years of North Rhine-Westphalia

27 August 2021 – 23 May 2022

 

To mark the 75th anniversary of North Rhine-Westphalia, a large exhibition was held in the Behrens building in Düsseldorf, which served as the seat of the first NRW minister-presidents from 1946 onwards. A variety of topics such as flight, expulsion, industry and economy, but also more mundane topics such as football, were presented on an exhibition area of approximately 1,200 square metres. At the same time, the show was the opening exhibition for the future “House of History North Rhine-Westphalia”, which will be realised in the Behrens building.

235 Media produced two interactive media installations for the exhibition: At “Where do you come from?” visitors could state their origins and those of their parents and grandparents and understand what role immigration plays in North Rhine-Westphalia. Another station allowed the audience to define topics that are considered future challenges for the federal state.

In the foyer we realised a 270° video panorama that was projected onto nine surfaces.

For the front of the building, we equipped 22 of the 48 windows on the third floor with LED meshes, for which we created an animation based on the state flag.

Special Exhibition: Stonehenge in Herne
23 September 2021 – 25 September 2022

The special exhibition Stonehenge in Herne in the LWL Archaeological Museum Herne presents the latest research results on what is probably Europe’s best-known archaeological monument. In the 16 thematic areas, there are detailed 1:1 replicas of the mighty megaliths, analogue and virtually reconstructed landscapes, 25 media stations and selected finds from English archaeology and the LWL Archaeology for Westphalia.

Visitors go on a journey through time, juxtaposing the history of Stonhenge with developments in Westphalia and the Ruhr region at the same time. For here too, over 4,500 years ago, and in part even earlier than in southern England, megalithic (mega = large, lithos = stone) structures were created that served as social meeting places in a landscape increasingly shaped by humans.

235 Media advised the exhibition organisers and supplied and installed the media technology. Various special constructions individually designed by us, such as extendable cantilever arms for projector assembly, were used.

Bill Viola’s first solo exhibition in Finland takes place in the underground exhibition spaces of the Amos Rex Art Museum in Helsinki, which opened in 2018. The exhibition presents twelve works from the artist’s late career (1994–2015) and the video game The Night Journey, a collaboration between Bill Viola Studio and USC Game Innovation Lab. In addition to large immersive projections, the exhibition features quiet installations and smaller, more intimate works. Common to all of Bill Viola’s works is their reflection on central themes of human existence: birth, life, death and spirituality.

As always when the Bill Viola Studio exhibits in Europe, 235 Media has taken over the technical planning and realization and supplied the video and audio technology.

Andy Warhol Now
Decem­ber 12th 2020 – Ju­ne 13th 2021

Andy Warhol is without a doubt the number one Pop artist. The Museum Ludwig in Cologne is dedicating a major retrospective to him with over one hundred works. Alongside art-historical icons such as the Elvis Presley, Electric Chair and Marilyn Monroe Series or Campbell’s Soup Cans and Brillo Boxes, the exhibition also presents films and other media works that perhaps most clearly reveal Warhol’s interest in a diverse, queer counterculture that was based in his New York studio, the Factory. The exhibition is evidence that Andy Warhol’s work remains highly relevant in our time, when an ever-increasing number of people are calling for the recognition and promotion of cultural and gender diversity.

235 Media installed several room-sized monitor and projection works. These included “Screen Tests,” with a projection area of nearly 80 square meters, and “Exploding Plastic Inevitable,” a spatial installation with 14 monitors.

“Screen Tests” (1964–66) are a series of black-and-white film portraits. They show a variety of people – usually from the neck up against plain backgrounds – many of whom were part of the mid-1960s New York cultural scene. Under Warhol’s direction, the sitters attempted to sit motionless for about three minutes while being filmed in slow motion. The films represented a new kind of portraiture – a slow-moving, almost still image of a person. The “Exploding Plastic Inevitable” was a series of multimedia events organized by Andy Warhol in 1966/67. They included performances by The Velvet Underground & Nico, screenings of Warhol’s films, and performances by Factory regulars.

Andy Warhol Now is a cooperation of Cologne’s Museum Ludwig and London’s Tate Modern. Other venues include the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado.

For copyright reasons, we only show images taken during the installation process and to document our own work.

June 9th – October 10th 2021

Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier opened the major European art exhibition Diversity United at Tempelhof Airport in Berlin on 8 June 2021. Diversity United presents an artistic tour d’horizon of Europe currently. The transnational exhibition shows paintings, sculptures, video art, new media, photographies, installations, drawings and object art by about 90 artists from 34 countries. They represent different generations, genders and regions and their work reflects the phenomenal diversity and vitality of Europe’s contemporary art scene – from Portugal to Russia, from Norway to Turkey. The works on display shed light on themes such as freedom and democracy, migration and territory, political and personal identity, utopias and fears, which also revolve around the current pandemic. Diversity United reflects the complexity of the European idea and its social realities in a globalized world.

The exhibition is in cooperation with Petersburg Dialogue (Petersburger Dialog e.V.), Tempelhof Projects (Tempelhof Projekt GmbH) and the Tretyakov Gallery. Diversity United is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.

235 Media was responsible for planning and installing all media installations by, among others, Christian Boltanski, Ulla von Brandenburg, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Richard Mosse, Anri Sala, Tristan Schulze, Luc Tuymans and Nil Yalter.

In the course of lignite mining in the Lusatian mining district, extensive archaeological excavations were undertaken, which contributed significantly to the understanding of the cultural and historical development of the region. Among other things, an early medieval Slavic fortification was discovered, which was reconstructed at its original location. It houses one of the most modern archaeological exhibitions in Germany.

Original finds are impressively presented in showcases. Overall historical contexts, but also interesting details, are conveyed in the form of text, film and animation on the latest digital media.

235 Media installed four projections, eight interactive touch monitors and nine additional showcase monitors. In addition, a media guide was created to complement the knowledge transfer.

Interaktive Books
November 2020

The Draiflessen Collection has an extensive collection of books and prints, which is one of the most important Dutch special libraries for the 17th and 18th centuries. The collection of approximately 4000 objects includes many delicate specimens of high antiquarian value, so it is not accessible to every visitor. In order to present some selected pieces to a wide audience, 235 Media developed interactive books.

At first glance, this medium looks like an ordinary book made of bound paper with blank pages. But only a few moments after opening, the pages are filled with life through a combination of camera recognition and front projection. In combination with hand-painted pages, this results in a fascinating interplay of digital and analog media with high haptic quality.

235 Media created several interactive books that are permanently displayed in the archive rooms. In addition, further books were produced for the exhibitions “Seestücke” (November 5, 2020 – May 9, 2021) and “Vom Wesen der Landschaft” (September 6, 2019 – February 16, 2020).
