A SHINING SPECTACLE: LIGHT ART SPACE & REFIK ANADOL

A SHINING SPECTACLE: LIGHT ART SPACE & REFIK ANADOL

What happens when art merges with science, and light itself becomes the artist’s medium? Entering the giant turbine hall of Kraftwerk Berlin for Refik Anadol’sexhibition “Latent Being”, you see it revealed: an otherworldly audiovisual experience, astounding in its depth and scale. Presented as an immersive journey through four chapters, this is data-driven art, using machine intelligence as well as visitors’ movements to create ever changing digital “paintings”. This dazzling work marks the launch of the Light Art Space (LAS), a foundation dedicated to the connections between art, new technologies and science. Alongside the light show is LAS+, an interdisciplinary program featuring a multimedia show from Berlin-based duo Amnesia Scanner(30.11.2019, 21h) and AI-influenced sounds from composer, musician and sound artist Holly Herndon, performing together with long-time collaborator Mathew Dryhurst (06.12.2019, 21h). Together, the three works show you the cutting edge of man-machine artistry.
