It was many years ago since I first visited Chile and Patagonia and fell in love with this spectacular country. I wanted to make a film to show this awesome land to as many people as possible, pretty sure that, unfortunately, Chile is still not as well known as it deserves. This short film is just the first step of the journey... Hope you like it as much as I did filming it.

We are honored to present the project film of Symphonie Cinétique - The Poetry of Motion.
This film presents the wonderful journey that media artist Joachim Sauter (ART+COM) and composer Ólafur Arnalds ventured on together at MADE, that culminated with the creation and performance of this interdisciplinary Gesamtkunstwerk.
The dialogue and exchange between these two craftsmen, each coming from a distinctly different discipline, resulted in a majestic clash of light, motion and sound.
Please dive in, let go and enjoy this wonderful moment - Joachim's graceful kinetic pieces breathing and moving in harmony with the touching music composed by Olafur.

MADE is a creative platform for artists from various fields, located in the heart of Berlin.
It can be a gallery, a workspace, a studio, a stage, a laboratory, or a performance space – but most of all, it is a venue for interdisciplinary projects that invites artists to step out of their artistic routines.
The goal of MADE is to enable a new kind of creative work by bringing together different artistic fields and offering a workspace and an inspiring biotope that allows new things to happen.
MADE was founded in early 2010 by German contemporary artist tadiROCK, her partner Nico Zeh and ABSOLUT Vodka, a visionary brand that fosters creative collaborations for over 30 years.
