The streets are the world's biggest art galleries. Even though street artists face chagellenges to freely transmit their ideas. They fight for it, also when they have to go against controversial laws which are trying to shut them up. This is no different to Outer-Act. Although the basis of this project avoids some of these punitive laws highlighting a so called "vandalism", the fear and ignorance of third parties still presents some challenges to overcome. Below are some samples of this work.
Eager to participate in the public art festival Luminale in 2020, risks were taken to go to Frankfurt with the project and experience a fearful and paranoid episode during the germination of the Coronavirus crisis in Germany.
The Berliner Museum Island has in its buildings a big part of the history and culture from our society. From the Babylon Gates to the modernist paintings of the 19th century, a variety of human made tools and works of expression can be found among those walls. Under the ancient colonnades, which follow along the Spree river, the Black Box was set up to defy the old architecture with its futuristic street art.
As a non-official attraction of this festival, the first experiments were done during the 2019 Berlin Festival of Lights. At this time it was not interactive, and was running a video loop and not using the final programming. Nevertheless the project showed itself to be very interactive thanks to the viewer's involvement with the character.
