Korrelation, 2020

The interactive light art installation Korrelation by the artist collective Xenorama, which has participated several times in the Schlosslichtspiele in Karlsruhe, transforms the pavement of Karl-Friedrich-Straße into an abstract underwater landscape. The landscape moves under the visitors’ feet as soon as they enter the projection. In response to viewers’ movements, it changes and opens up a view of the subaquamarine world. The viewers become part of the artistic-visual environment, which they influence significantly through all of their actions. The work, whose title means "mutual relation", uses projection and sensor technology to visualize water as one of the most precious resources on the planet. By the dynamic overlapping of visual and sound levels, the work draws attention to the close relationship between humans, nature, and technology. The aim of the installation is to emphasize the interdependence of all human and nonhuman actors that share the living space on Earth.

 

Korrelation was selected for the Seasons of Media Arts 2020 by ZKM | Karlsruhe.
