in collaboration with Bettina Schuelke
Aura/Aurora is the most recent phase of an ongoing art & science project presenting an interactive interpretation of the Polar Lights - Aurora Borealis and Australis, the magnificent, mysterious and dynamic natural spectacle that has retained a near-mythical status in most cultures over centuries. The dazzling geo-specific phenomena, typically observed in the polar regions is not only a brilliant spectacle but it also makes dramatically visible the invisible world of geomagnetic activities.
Aura/Aurora is a real-time audio visual art installation combining visuals and sonic components. It has been argued that an artwork can hardly compete with the actual experience of a natural phenomenon, therefore we aimed at an alternative approach. A series of visual images are also included in the exhibition.
