Urbanscreen Projects - 320 Degree Licht - Gasometer Oberhausen

The arts program of The Gassometer Oberhausen continues this year with The Appearance Of Beauty. The vast upper spaces of the gassometer house a colossal 3D mapping projection (over 16,000 Sq meters) by Urbanscreen Projects. This time eschewing the use of human figures which have, I feel, sometimes compromised the purity of their ideas, this feels like the perfect  space for their brilliant spacial manipulations. unconstrained by the relativities of scale which inevitably impinge upon the exterior projections the group usually work on, this apparently limitless void gives their work an incomparable canvas. Despite crawling around the websites of both Gassometer Oberhausen and Urbanscreen I cannot find a credit for the very elaborate sound design which is clearly a crucial part of the presentation. Plus ça change! Until December 30th.
