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.

Hans Arp: Traumanatomie

CLIENT: Landes-Stiftung Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck
26. DECEMBER 2011

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.

2008

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.

Zur Deutschen Sozialgeschichte

CLIENT: BUNDESMINISTERIUM FÜR ARBEIT UND SOZIALES
AUGUST 2008

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
