Projection art in a new light.
The Vienna-based creative company Lumine stages projections holistically, from the idea to the actual experience. With large-scale, customized panoramic projections and 3D video mapping adapted to the architecture, buildings as well as rooms have been effectively staged for more than two decades.
In addition to the concept and technical planning, the focus is on the artistic implementation for art and cultural events.
Tim Schmelzer in conversation with Marcus Zobl
Who are you?
For more than two decades, we have been writing projection history together. We aspire to transform our visions into unique experiences. To succeed, we’ve been working with an experienced, creative team for many years.
What are your fields of activity?
We work on the creative design and staging of projections, with our focus having shifted towards conceptual planning over the years. We produce the creative concepts for our projects, design mood and storyboards, take care of dramaturgical processes and assume artistic direction.
Since when has Lumine been a part of Q21/MQ?
Lumine has been based at Q21 since its foundation in 2020. Before that, we had already been at Q21 as a part of Lichtkunst Kollektiv Lichttapete.
How does light become art?
Through the ideas that are transported by light.
Why do light and sound go so well together?
The acoustic sphere amplifies visual signals and expands the media experience.
What is a light art intervention?
To us, a light art intervention is a comprehensive projection in public space, aiming to create a symbiosis of light and architecture.
This term describes our inspiration for the upcoming projection show at MuseumsQuartier in celebration of its 20th anniversary. It will be defined by transformed architecture and the interplay of light and reflections.
re:flexion – Lichtkunstintervention
Oct 21 thru Oct 28
daily show times at 19h, 20h & 21h (Sat and Sun additionally at 18h)
In celebration of MuseumsQuartier‘s20th anniversary, the light installation ‘re:flexion’ by Lumine will create unique light moods in the MQ main court. The facades of Leopold Museum, HalleE+G, mumok and Q21 will be transformed into new objects, reflecting the environment and the diverse cultural offers. The interplay of light reflections, light impulses and rhythmic sounds creates symphonies.
