Orbis is a light and video installation built exclusively for the art festival Asche zu Farbgut in Augsburg. The festival offers an outlook on what can and will be achieved with the future transformation of the old industrial area into a creative area by showcasing a broad spectrum of contemporary art.
Hovering over the visitors like a majestic cloud it captures the industrial vibe of the beautiful building former used to cool down gas for further processing. It’s a modern, abstract interpretation of the industrial use of natures forces which also shows in the way of manufacturing the installation. Modern production methods like 3D printing combined with industrially processed organic materials result in a complex form, revealing different shapes and endless possibilities for interpretation to the visitors depending on their point of view. Projection Mapping brought the structure to life with reactive lightbulbs as its heart beat.
