“Skalar – Reflections on Light and Sound” by Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray at Kraftwerk Berlin. Art exhibition (and 4 live performances) until February 25th. . . The audience stands under a lattice of circular mirrors in an impressive pitch-black industrial venue. A historical one in fact: it’s the former power plant of East Berlin. The show begins. . . “Skalar” is an immersive large-scale installation that begins with laser-like rays of white lights that criss cross throughout the room, dancing with each other, and eventually meeting the mirrors to create sharp angular shapes in the dark void. . . As the lights, colors, and music change, the mood is dramatically altered. Parts of the performance are calm and peaceful, meditative even. Other parts feel exactly like being in a techno club. . . Light artist Christopher Bauder (founder of @whitevoid_berlin) is the Berlin-based mastermind behind “Skalar”. His work focuses on how technology translates into our environment, and vice-versa. Complimented by @kangding_ray ’s music, this installation is unlike anything we’ve seen. Highly recommended! . . #berlinartbites #christopherbauder #Light #Sound #Berlin #Installation #MultiSensory #Technology #Kinetic #Performance #CTM #Festival #Kraftwerk #Skalar #lightinstallation #turmoil #kangdingray #kraftwerk #art #kunst #ufo #ufos #whitevoid #whitevoid_berlin
