LIFA_Colloquium VII: Light and Sound
Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts Kiel
7 to 9 November 2019
The combination of light, sound and spatiality forms the focus of the LIFA Colloquium VII at the Muthesius Academy of Art in Kiel. In the focus of the reflection are settings (installations, music performances, video mappings, etc.) that produce overall spheres through sound generated light experiences, in which the combined connection of light and sound creates a “third level of perception”. The experiment of the Philips Pavilion at the EXPO 1958 by Le Corbusier, Iannis Xenakis and Edgard Varèse, which was set very early in history, stands for the goal of merging architecture and the ephemeral means of light and sound to create an overall event. Although the technology available at that time was not yet sufficient to reliably control time-based events, it opened up new perspectives in art and music performance.
The conference will bring together artists and designers who use the media of light and sound to explore generative technologies and their new design possibilities such as projection mapping, LED and laser programming or sensor-controlled sound generation. In the symposium, we want to discuss the interdisciplinary potential at the interfaces between art and design.

About LIFA (Light in Fine Arts).
HBKsaar has set itself the goal of building up a broad database on international light art: www.lifa-research.org
The initiative is the result of a series of informal meetings of artists who consider light to be an essential material of their artistic practice. Later, art scientists, architects, cultural scientists and computer scientists joined the initiative. The annual colloquia serve to discuss topics relevant to light art and to exchange ideas. This year LIFA will take place for the first time at the Muthesius University of Fine Art and Design in Kiel at the invitation of Professors Arnold Dreyblatt, Tom Duscher and Manfred Schulz.
