Berlin White Lines

As the strobing light momentarily divides the space of the dance floor, new situations arises, bodies and light merge in an almost choreographed composition, creating new spaces. Berlin white lines investigates the possibilities of carving space with lines, light and bodies.

The project consists of five unique structures performing different tasks according to the placement within the space and expressed through their shape and lighting conditions. These five ephemeral structures, discusses the transformation of space, perception and transparency. It is an intriguing assembly of curved surfaces, framed in a lightweight structure. As the perceiver moves, these surfaces will open and close, allowing different intensities, according to their direct relation to the perceiver.

Strobe, fluorescent and projected light adds a new dimension to the experience of the structures. With precision mapping, the projected light is controlled and the individual frames take their place in the whole of the structure; they become an autonomous part in the bigger whole.

A strobe lit structures created a spectrum towards the street-scape, attracting the attention of the passing crowd, moving them to the facade of the building, pulling them along side it and following them inside the foyer at the ground level.

The transition from the ground to the upper level is mediated by a hovering structure, starting on the wall, it encloses the space over the head of the visitors, navigating and releasing them to the space of the stair only to turn back and reconnecting with them at the entrance to the upper level.

Behind the DJ, a there dimensional wall, moves up and down, in and out, between the mirror covered columns. With precision mapping this surfaces is turned into a spectacle of light, framing the dance floor, interacting with the dancing bodies, forming new spaces between them.

Across the room, video projections, clearly readable from outside the structure, is only grasped as fragments of light within the structure. As the perceiver moves through, the structure transform, spaces open and encloses, light penetrates and reflects, shadows come and go, all which contributes to vast variety of spatial experiences.

Leading you down the hall, a small elegant simple structure shoots from the wall and leads you to the small exhibition rooms.

These installations was made for the new years party at .HBC Berlin.
