An audiovisual projection on a house facade with a graffiti artwork.
Premiered on 2nd of November 2014 in Erlangen, Germany.
Duration: 6 minutes / Dimensions: approx. 23 square meters
1 HD projector with Stereo 2/0 sound

The basis for the projection is a white, about 23 square meters large facade at Albert-Schweitzer-Gymnasium in Erlangen. It is designed with a black and white graffiti, based on the art of the American graffiti artist Keith Haring. The aim of the art project "lichtspielwand" (a German neologism of the words: old cinema house (German: Lichtspiel-haus) & wall (-wand); new meaning: play of light on a wall) is to bring the already existing graffiti artwork by an audiovisual projection to life. The graffiti, one of the precursors of projection mapping, merges with the projection itself and the boundaries between reality and illusion become blurred. It combines animations which have been created with traditional (mostly stop motion & time lapse) and digital techniques (visual effects & post-production).

The soundtrack has been specially composed for this project. First, noises are collected in everyday life with a recording device. These are, for example, "closing of doors" noises, sounds of a mobile phone, a door-bell, a saxophone, a faucet, children's toys and objects played with a drum stick, such as glasses, pots, tables and cabinets. This sound fragments have a length of about one second each. The individual sounds are then digitally modified with effects by using sequencer software and combined to a beat.
