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 which redesigns itself under the visitors’ feet as soon as stepped onto. 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 and which refers to both the sensual and the scientific data-based observation of our environment, 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.

Terms: The installation is designed for up to ten people, whereby the number of users and their movements have an impact on the media environment. Feel free to enter the installation, keep your distance and remain attentive to your surroundings.
