This Luftwerk’s project took place in two different locations: the German Pavilion (Barcelona) and the famous Farnsworth House (Illinois), both Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s work. Though a sensational experience, combining visual and auditory stimulation – this last by Oriol Tarragó – the audience is invited to dive in this frontier between real and virtual.

As the day gets darker, the contrast between the dark and red laser brings a surprisingly intense atmosphere that, alined to the carefully designed audio, elevates the exposition to an immersive experience inside this unrevealed reality. It’s incredibly intriguing the importance that audio assumes, while being the result of a mixture between silence and natural sounds, as well as instruments that play sometimes far something near us. All of these factors help in the creation of a concern that follows along Luftwerk’s work, German duo whose main purpose is precisely the create new sensory experiences, frequently playing with the light, the reflex and the illusion.
