Chromolab is a collaborative work in progress together with the visual artist Victoria Coeln.
Victoria develops light spaces she refers to as "chromotopes". Her work condenses and concretizes light and incorporates scientific knowledge as well as the power of emotion and personal encounter. The chromotopes are installed temporarily or permanently in public outdoor and indoor spaces.
We presented Chromolab, a selection of photo and video work with the dancers Caitlyn Carradine and Ziga Jereb at the Donau Universitaet Krems, Austria in July 2010. The structures of light and vice versa the dance movements changed continuously and gave way to experiments with new situations and boundaries.
Victoria and I used analog as well as digital equipment (5' x 4' and mid format, dslr, video) and produced large scale photo prints, collage work and video clips.
