Future Exchange by raumlaborberlin

“As primary building materials, the doors of East German panel flats which had to yield to wrecking balls have been salvaged and re-appropriated for use. Originating from Halle-Neustadt they are a symbol for the shrinking and deconstruction of this town, which was conceived in the early 60’s as part of a utopian vision for the post-war modernist city. The doors, representing waste and the failure of the 20th Century’s ideological struggles, now find new life as transmediale.10’s temporary space station for process-based artistic practice.”

During this year’s Transmediale, the annual festival for art and digital culture in Berlin, the Austrian artist Gebhard Sengmüller presented his impressive installation ‘A Parallel Image’. It consists of a camera and a monitor which are connected through 2 500 cables.

Gebhard Sengmüller explains: “A Parallel Image” is an electronic camera obscura. This media-archaeological, interactive sculpture is based on the fictive assumption that the currently still valid principle of electronically transmitting moving images, namely by breaking them down into single images and image lines, was never discovered. The result is an apparatus that attempts a highly elaborate parallel transmission of every single pixel from sender to receiver.”

The installation was realised in collaboration with Franz Büchinger, supported by Fels-Multiprint.
