DARK MATTER
A multidimensional parallel world of light, space and sound.
Berlin, Germany

DARK MATTER is a parallel cosmos of expansive light installations in which the boundaries between the real and the digital worlds become blurred. Within the pitch-black rooms of a converted factory, the visitor embarks on a journey through seven partly interactive works. Light, movement and sound fuse into emotional choreographies of luminous shapes and colors.

Built across 1,000 square meters of exhibition space, DARK MATTER presents a range of multimedia installations. These vary from breathtakingly intimate light compositions to interactive walk-in structures, and room-encompassing audiovisual performances. Some works are supported with a worldwide unique 3D-sound system. Each room possesses its own individual atmosphere that unfolds upon entry, creating a holistic and one-of-a-kind experience; a space to be enjoyed by visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

Behind this pioneering experience is visionary light artist Christopher Bauder and his design studio WHITEvoid. Collectively the team’s extensive portfolio includes the prolific installations DEEP WEB and SKALAR at Kraftwerk Berlin. In 2014, Bauder and WHITEvoid were also responsible for LICHTGRENZE, in which they imagined and produced 8,000 luminescent balloons to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Visitors move through the exhibits and interact with the objects, sound, light and surrounding space. In this way, everyone experiences the exhibition uniquely. For a series of moments, the fast pace of everyday life gives way to meditative, hypnotic power of light, motion and sound. The exhibition is a living organism that will evolve and transform over time, illuminating the darkness of the exhibition spaces in new and varied ways. DARK MATTER remains ethereal and always in motion, a vision that only takes shape for brief moments.

In cooperation with other innovative technology partners, DARK MATTER will operate as a space for continued experimentation. Fifteen years of technical innovation and creative vision will come together in this collection of unique light installations, some of which have never been displayed to the public before.
