The 2011 edition of 'lichtsicht' was the 3rd projection biennale in Bad Rothenfelde, representing a forum for international video art. Every two years at the beginning of autumn, the largest salt works in Western Europe are transformed into a huge projection surface for this emerging art form.
The staging was designed for a graduation works, which is layered with salt-covered blackthorn branches. Ferrous and gypsum sediments, as well as limescale of varying thickness covers the stacked up blackthorn twigs, causing reflections shrouded through a fine haze of salt water. These exceptional key features of the monumentally seeming construction mainly shape the appearance, giving the staging its distinct and unique characteristics.
