When it gets dark, you can use the app programmed by Alexander Liebrich and Marco Zampella to participate actively in creating the audiovisual presentation in a shop window in the Waldstrasse.

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.
