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”

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

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.

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.

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.

13 November 2021 – 9 August 2022

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.

October 2021

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: Inner Journey
22 September 2021 – 27 Februar 2022

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.

“Boaz Kaizman. Green Area”
3 September 2021 – 9 January 2022

For the celebratory year “2021. 1700 Years of Jewish Life in Germany”, the Museum Ludwig has invited the artist Boaz Kaizman (born 1962 in Tel Aviv, lives and works in Cologne) to develop a new work that will enter the museum’s collection following the exhibition. The large-format video installation created by Boaz Kaizman consists of a total of 16 films projected in a complex choreography by seven video projectors onto two walls of the large exhibition hall. The spatial sound also follows compositional principles, but the sound tracks of all the films can also be listened to individually in their entirety via headphones.

235 Media designed, provided and installed all the technology for the elaborate video/audio installation.

The goal was to develop modular and reusable exhibition architecture for the museum created by Richard Meier. The art bulletin (1-2/10011 edition, page 56), reports on the results: “The fantastic spatial effect of Richard Meier’s museum construction project is used effectively to establish surprising perspectives and visions by alternating between intimate built-ins and open views.” Selected small sculptures have been effectively placed in an open view with three sequential lighting conditions: “Sophisticated lighting effects provide an additional subjectivity of the view: The versatility of Arp’s artistic base element has been effectively staged.” (Art bulletin, see above)

Security sensors, developed by 235 MEDIA as well, enable the open positioning of exhibits on large wall pedestals.

235 MEDIA created the SoundSpa for the company Dornbracht. As well as building the exhibition inside the Cologne factory of Meiré GmbH during the 2008 Passages, 235 MEDIA also set it up in Milan for the supporting events at the Salon du Mobile.

The presentation took place inside a specially developed SoundSpa, conceived and designed by Mike Meiré. Thanks to music from Mike Meiré and Carlo Peters, as well as animated images by Jens-Oliver Gasde, this piece of ritual architecture made for a unique experience. Through the interplay between the ceiling projection and the sound installation, various acoustic worlds came into being.

235 MEDIA implemented the building of the cubes, delivered and installed the media technology and oversaw the construction and dismantling.

On 23 August 2008 the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs opened a permanent exhibition on the emergence of German social history.

235 MEDIA ®evolution not only planned and implemented all of the media technology, but also designed an interactive table. The interactive table provides visitors with an opportunity to playfully explore the world in which people in Germany lived around 1900. The visitor can “page” through portraits of social classes, professions and places that played a role in life of those times as if in a photo album, thereby intuitively gaining access to these topics through pictures, films and texts. The interactive table makes it possible to acquire insight into to the atmosphere of everyday working life and to approach the lives of the people in a personal manner.

In addition to the interactive table, 235 MEDIA also created the following multimedia displays:

– an interactive stairway installation with projections of various historical vehicles

– two interactive AV media stations

– an interactive audio station with 12 audio portraits
