Projection Mapping and Live Visuals, ca. 10 x 5 meters, Museum Schnütgen (Cäcilienkirche), Köln, 2019
The Schnütgen Museum for medieval art has been located in the building complex around St. Cäcilien since 1956. The image concept for the projection is based on the museum's rich collection of images and objects and expandes this fund with current, descriptive, educational moments from the museum:
Romanesque Madonnas enthroned, Gothic maternal Marys and devotional figures from the late Middle Ages entered into a visual dialogue with recordings from the adventure video game Assassin’s Creed, descriptive text passages from the museum collection, newly modeled 3D sculptures and numerous (Re-) interpretations of the showpieces.
The exhibits actually shown were interwoven with the projected images and thus resulted in an entanglement of various artistic attitudes and forms of expression. The pillars of the nave and the entire choir itself served as projection surfaces. The vaults and pillars were mapped via split output from a computer via two powerful cinema projectors below the crypt and played live and individually for each act over the entire duration.
