"Bauhaus Resonance – Past Present Future"

"Bauhaus Resonance” is a partly AI generated 3D video mapping piece that presents iconic Bauhaus concepts, such as the integration of art and technology. In the opening scene graphic lines will follow the shape of the building, creating a network that slowly reveals more and more objects that look like Bauhaus-inspired furniture and houses. Slowly, these wireframe-like figures turn into 3D objects with coloured shapes that morph into ever new designs in the typical AI-generated video style. The background remains simple with the black and white graphic network until the shapes form an entire city, which also transforms into a colourful volumetric AI-generated landscape.

Now the whole scenery is coloured in the primary colour palette and we zoom out of the futuristic city, that is completely generated by AI. How would AI imagine a world shaped by Bauhaus principles in the years to come? The Zoom will be slow and steady with many details to discover and explore, as we move through different scenarios and design landscapes.

Combining our love for technology, art and nature the LUCID collective creates video mapping projections and immersive installations that paint optimistic narratives about the future and inspire new unexpected urban scenarios. The Berlin based collective aspires to collaborate with Artists from all over the world and create bridges internationally. By augmenting reality with light, we create transformative illusions and new collective experiences. From the revival of forgotten places to the creation of optimistic narratives about the future, from educative pieces for museums and historic monuments to interactive installations, we are passionate about telling compelling stories and inspire thought-provoking conversations.

About the venue

This year, Genius Loci Weimar is once again playing host to a contemporary building, the Bauhaus Museum. The Bauhaus Museum opened in April 2019 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus. The Bauhaus School in Weimar and the Weimar Republic began together in 1919, advocating for a modern, democratic and cosmopolitan society.

The new Bauhaus Museum sees itself as an "open workshop", a place of experience through participation and mediation of craftsmanship and design processes. With the motto "How do we want to live together?" it does not pursue a teaching concept. This question, once posed by Walter Gropius, is to be understood as a call, and the spirit of the Bauhaus is to be made tangible. Among the exhibits on display is the Bauhaus collection, the oldest collection of its kind, which was created by Walter Gropius.

In the building, the visitor can look from floor to floor. The clear architecture of the new building works in its interior on five floors with two-story air spaces, with views in, out and through.

The location of the new Bauhaus Museum is on an axis from the former Nazi Socialist Gauforum via Weimar's Goetheplatz with the Harry Graf Kessler Art Gallery, a pioneer of the Bauhaus, to the German National Theater, where the constituent National Assembly met in 1919.

The new Bauhaus Museum is ideally suited as a competition object for media play: the sober - clear structure leaves plenty of room for its own creative language of forms and images.

It is intended to project onto the façade over the entire surface, thereby simulating a media display using projectors, lighting elements or other methods of illumination or display. Windows will be covered in a manner suitable for projection. Entrants are encouraged to develop a 10-15 minute video performance that will be repeated at the site every half hour during the festival weekend. The video should also include audio - either as a concrete proposal for the playback, or to better simulate the intended atmosphere in the festival situation. Spatial acoustics are also conceivable, either in the sense of multi-channel 3D audio or spatially separated focused audio islands with different narration, but the visitor crowd should be considered. The competition is also open to experimental positions for the visual display - for example, images that appear differently from different perspectives, or interactive augmentation with smartphones, for example.
