The world premiere of Deep Web took place at the CTM Festival in Berlin from February 2 to 7, 2016. Deep Web was originally developed for the Festival of Lights in Lyon 2015 in close collaboration with the French creative agency Tetro. Due to the cancellation of this 2015 festival as a result of the tragic events in Paris, Kraftwerk Berlin hosted this exclusive preview.
The luminous, ever-changing structure of a total width of 25 meters and a height of 10 meters, combined with the electronic sounds, artistically visualized the functioning of digital networks with their nodes and connections in an impressive way.
The spectacular industrial architecture of Kraftwerk Berlin was the perfect setting for this monumental light art installation with live performance. The colossal crowd and the enthusiasm of the many visitors made Deep Web a highlight of the CTM Festival 2016.
A matrix of 175 water-filled fluorescent spheres suspended from motorized winches and the beams from 12 installed PHAENON X high-power laser projectors formed a structure of lines and dots floating in space, their colors and movements constantly changing. The spheres illuminated by the lasers moved synchronously choreographed to the composition (8-channel surround sound) by R. Henke.
Each projector projected laser beams precisely onto 91 spheres. The projectors were controlled by the internal Lasergraph DSP controllers, which received the current position of the spheres via LAN using OSC messages and the color data of the spheres to be illuminated via ARTNET. A specially set up Lasergraph DSP software tool ensured that the laser beams were sent precisely to the desired position.
Total laser power: 320 watts
