The layout of the venue is rebuild into a
3D-model. Water in different qualities, stream
velocities, amounts and directions flows – in
relation to the architecture – over the simulated venue model. A selection of “Water” - especially able to characterize the symbiosis of motion on architecture – is congruently distributed via a video projection over the real place. Organized in a cascading order the projected parts are joined to an entire historicized complex, which uses the link to the cultural use of the town hall to raise in an ironical manner questions about the presence and content of real spaces and cultural spaces nowadays
In front of the town hall of Mülheim a broad stepped venue, conveys between building and surroundings. This open space literally “digs” itself into the volume of the hall and “outpours” into a big area located very close to the river.
The aspect of the spacial “flow” is to be underlined
and thus it’s connecting character.
