Dive into a world of colors!
In this work, visitors see their own body as a mirror image, drawn by thousands of luminous, flowing color particles. The particles react to the movements of the people, can be whirled and thrown. The work invites visitors to perceive their own body and the effects of their movements in a playful, chaotic, expressive or meditative way. Furthermore, the visitors can interact with each other and thus, individually or in groups, actively control the play of colors.

In 2020, The Silent Chaos of Colors received support by the project funding program of the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe. In 2021, the artwork was shown for the first time on Werderplatz in Karlsruhe, where it reached a diverse audience.

Part of the exhibition Media Art is Here (2023).
