Reality Remixed

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.

The grounds of what used to be Linz’s tobacco processing plant will be the extraordinary featured venue of this year’s Ars Electronica Festival. The Tabakfabrik’s history goes back to 1850, when the Austrian State Tobacco Company began producing cigars and pipe & chewing tobacco here. The plant was expanded in stages and production stepped up over the years. The workforce grew rapidly; over 1,000 people (mostly women) were already working here by 1855.

The new Ars Electronica Center in Linz is an ambitious architectural undertaking that went up in record time. A multilevel structure was built immediately adjacent to the existing facility. Subsequently the entire ensemble was wrapped in a glass shell: the AEC’s spectacular 5.100 m LED facade which consists of 1085 windows colored red, green, blue and white in size of 3x1 meters. The LED lights are attached in groups to the building‘s facade (horizontal and vertical). The colors and intensity of the lights can be changed group by group (RGB based colors). The media facade can be operated by a ‘Simulator’.

Office Cleaning - a view of the other side

Analogous to baroque trompe-l’oeil murals, the projection allows us to look into an illusory room behind the outer facade: a fictional window that draws the attention to hidden, but essential, activities that mostly occur out of public perception. A peephole is opening in the city night.

Nika Radic

Nika Radic is an artist and works in different media. Her main topic is the limits of possible communication: what is it that we can really understand in everyday communication but also in art. She has done several works that used facades and walls in public space that opened the wall into an imaginary space beyond.
This allowed the viewers to 'peep' into the building and see something that is going on inside… even if it was only an illusion.
