Our City, 2020

Our City features a multimedia smartphone app that enables the public to participate in the creation of art. Wherever you are in Karlsruhe, the app, programmed by Alexander Liebrich and Marco Zampella, allows you to participate in the audiovisual presentation on the facade of the Turmberg in Karlsruhe-Durlach after dusk. Regardless of the users’ location, the work enables them to become part of a creative process via digital interfaces, being creative together with other users, while helping to shape Our City.

 

Our City was supported by the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe 2020 project support program for media art.

 

Location: Facade of the Turmberg in Karlsruhe-Durlach

Alexander Liebich & Marco Zampella

Artist

Since 2010, the computer scientist Alexander Liebrich (*1978) and the media artist Marco Zampella (*1978) have been working together as a creative duo at the intersection of art, technology, humans, and nature; they focus particularly on the interaction between humans and machines. In collaboration with the dramaturg Frank Halbig (SWR), they developed an interactive radio play for the Mobile Interface Radio (MIR) in 2010, and in 2011 they presented the pervasive multiplayer game YOU ARE ... NOT ALONE at the first Beyond Festival in Karlsruhe. In addition to computer games, they program smartphone apps and engage with digital programs to expand physical perception such as virtual reality and augmented reality. Alexander Liebrich and Marco Zampella live and work in Karlsruhe.
