Reality Remixed by Alexandre Decoupigny and Emily C. Völker
Students from Wilhelm-von-Siemens-Gymnasium have been collecting sounds and images inside Marzahn’s famous prefab concrete tower blocks, creating a media archive of their own reality. Using the tower blocks as an urban screen in combination with a multi-channel speaker system, this participatory community project turns the buildings themselves inside-out, culminating in an audiovisual performance lead by an MP3-player-based urban game. Reality Remixed serves as a platform for young people from Berlin-Marzahn to explore and challenge different perceptions of reality.
