Klaus Obermaier is an interdisciplinary border crosser between visual and performing arts. His manifold work comprises musical compositions, space-related installations and interventions, video and web projects and reactive projections for the stage as well as for public space. His works are expanding the scope between analogue and digital reality and are exemplary for the expansion of stage rooms into digital dimensions.
LichtRouten-Project: Dancing House
For the facade of the Knapper school Klaus Obermaier develops a mapping, which plays with both the photographic image and the graphical elements of programming. It shows the process of decomposing an image into pixel as interactive projection, which can be controlled via the choice of the position and movement of the viewer.
