MULTIMEDIA PARALLEL WORLDS
At the Panorama Fashion Fair, one of Berlin’s newest fashion fairs, we transformed six passage tunnels into immersive parallel worlds at the time of the Fashion Week Winter 2015. Poetic, artistic dream moments during the fair’s bustling activity turned short paths into spectacular long-haul journeys. In the tunnel Space-Time Journey, surreal desert landscapes flashed by as if looking out of a train window. Organic polygons and mirrored pyramids fell from the sky in slow motion. Body Timelapse was about dance: Figures danced towards one another in front of a nightblack background, their movements dissolved in light traces, blue, purple, pink and white blended fluidly and danced in the space in a picturesque choreography.
In Spatial Sewing, the space was literally turned upside down. Crystal Kaleidoscope resembled a sparkling, glittering jewel box. Four Seasons showed a majestic mountain range that seemed to be dancing to the music. Opening blossoms, doves taking wing, whirling autumn leaves and trickling snow transformed the tunnel in the rhythm of the seasons. In Underwater, the element water was staged in glowing colours and in all of its aggregate states, from frozen ice to oversized effervescent drops.
The walls and floors of these tunnels, 35 metres long and five metres high, constituted the spaces that 16 projectors and an 8-channel sound system played out on immersively and audio-visually. The spatial sound design, produced by Kling Klang Klong Berlin, underlined the atmospheres in the individual passages between the fair halls. It was not possible to alter the architecture of the tunnels – existing shutter gates, technical elements and walls of varying height needed to be smartly integrated into the installations.
