I am just coming out of my 2nd participation of the Reeperbahnfestival here in Hamburg. After last years Tagtool sessions I found myself locked inside a 40'' container this year. Together with Anna Constantin and Marina Friedt, I was invited to fill one of 11 shipping containers within the concept of 'when is the battery charged'. The overall concept and organization was done by HamburgHoch11, a NPO that aims to connect artists and provide platforms for artistical presentations. A shout going out to Andreas Lübbers for making it al happen.
So for my part, I wasn't quite sure how to approch the space using projections. I wanted to tagtool it again and experimented with convex mirrors, but the quality just wasn't good enough. In the end I went with a vertical projection on a battery icon, made from cardboard. We added some light from the floor using Osram Wallwashers and I would project on the upper part of the shape.
So here it goes. Good fun.
