NEUBAU is an audiovisual installation created by the art group VOLNA that was presented at the Vertical art gallery in St. Petersburg, Russia in December 2015 – January 2016.
The installation consists of thirteen projection screens made of PVC and suspended in an empty fifteen meter elevator shaft. They created a three dimensional projection surface for live visuals displayed during the Biggest One ★(Russian: САМАЯ БОЛЬШАЯ ★) new year’s party and as a stand-alone exhibition with pre-made audio and video at NEUBAU, an exhibition that took place on January 3-4, 2016.
The minimalistic generative video displays monotonous and repetitive patterns that were inspired by the architecture of Eastern European suburbs. The twelve minute exhibition video depicts the life cycle of a residential building from its construction to decay and eventual demolition.
