Photography, Photogram, light and video projection, sculpturing, installation and performance are part of Vollrad Kutscher’s portfolio. A recurring subject in his works is the reciprocal relation of image and imagination, especially in diverse series of portraits. When he is using light as sculpturing material it is playing the role of elusive images of thought which in the material world only appear as a reflection. His installations are internal and external observations of identity shaping processes in which cerebration and existence are being synchronized.
LichtRouten-Project: Shining Role Models
The two-part work shows ten luminograms and ten photograms. The light images are projections, which are produced by rack-mounted halogen lamps. The photograms are the corresponding negatives of the projected images. The drawings are inspired by medieval illumination and display portraits applied on a glass sleeve. On display are ten selected personalities which have shaped the history of electricity and electric light.
LichtRouten-Site: Phänomenta Lüdenscheid
Phänomenta is a science center with a focus on physics. It is one of the anchor points of the urban renewal project Denkfabrik “think tank” and is currently being expanded. For example, a 75-meter steel structure is built, in which a Foucault pendulum will illustrate the Earth’s rotation.
