1 Metzler Bank building on the Untermainanlage
Artist Clemens Teichmann teamed up with lighting retailer nobilé AG transform to transform an unremarkable bank building into a luminous beacon, using app controlled blue and green LEDs.
A series of small-scale light sculptures were scattered along the waterside in Nizza Park, including a handful of pieces by artist collective Assoziationsketten. The battery-powered pieces invoke the past, when candle and lanterns were used to provide illumination.
This interactive installation, by lighting designers Lucie, employs the bioelectrical signals given off by plants to control the animation of the lights. The frequencies emitted create a rhythmic colour change, in the handmade light fibre fabric sculptures.
Jennifer Stark and Tina Waldecka, two students at the Mainz University of Applied Sciences, created this moving mural, which saw a shadowy drama played out on a concrete wall inside of transit hub Frankfurt Main Hauptbahnhof.
Outside the entrance to Frankfurt’s central station, another project by Hochschule Mainz students had the crowds roaring. Joel Knickel und Moriz Schroeter’s giant grid of light was an interactive piece powered by sound – a whisper brings a flicker, while a cheering crowd has it lit up like a sparkler.
