“SKALAR” is a large-scale art installation by Christopher Bauder and Kangding Ray that explores the complex impact of light and sound on human perception. Following a highly-successful collaboration between WHITEvoid, Kraftwerk, and CTM in 2016 with “Deep Web,” CTM 2018 Festival is pleased to host this next artistic venture within its titular Turmoil edition.. ” (http://www.ctm-festival.de/festival-2018/specials/skalar/)
An explosive combination of moving patterns and lights with an explorative, intense emotional sound waves.
Kratfwerk’ s imposing industrial architecture embraces this work and emphasizes the potential of this moving piece of art. The installation is consisted of powerful lights, cold and warm and round suspended mirrors. An optic-acoustic game of illusions and sensations. The whole experience suggests the difference of perspectives in everyday life, the alteration between light and darkness and the uniqueness of each viewpoint.
Skalar is like a moving sky full of magnetising “stars “and mirrors, a powerful artificial space, an oasis in our urban fast-forward environments. If you are in Berlin on any of these dates 27.1 – 25.2.2018 do not miss it. Just lie in the dark and enjoy the experience enhanced by the extremely dynamic sound of our favourite Kangding Ray ( Stroboscopic Artefacts, Raster Noton).
