The Zwischenraum sound and space installation by Rebecca Himmerich confronts and challenges clearly defined spaces. In this work, Rebecca Himmerich focuses on gray zones, transitions and the absence of structure, which predominate between these usually conventionally declared central concepts. With the help of sound and light elements, some of which are produced in advance and some generated live, four rooms (or spaces) allow the public to have an immersive experience and confrontation with the topic. In the approx. thirty-minute performance, there are intermediate states such as waiting, the prenatal stage or the subset of what is certain and what is uncertain.
The project was carried out in collaboration with several other artists. The unique dynamic which develops among the performers through their live improvisation is part of the concept and supports the variety and unlimited nature of one of the main characteristics of the intermediate space [Zwischenraum]: its uncertainty.
Zwischenraum is the final project of Rebecca Himmerich in the upper-level Visual Music module, and supervised by Andreas Kolinski, assistant professor of Computer-based Media Composition, and me at the Institute For Music And Media.
