The artists collective RaumZeitPiraten (SpaceTimePirates)- initiated by Tobias Daemgen, Jan Ehlen and Moritz Ellerich – are creating location-specific performative multimedia installations, interventions and happenings. Since 2007 they are working with several cooperating artists and changing media. Their ephemeral models of imperfect man-machine counter-worlds question realities, scientific accuracy and inorganic behaviour dominated by machines.
Project Title CycloCopter
The CycloCopters are custom-built, light and sound emitting vehicles for urban interventions. Different models of old freight bicycles were modifed and customized towards mobile, opto-acoustic systems that can be used to board and transform public spaces.
The term public space sounds like an unfulfilled promise. Restrictive forces seem to work against what could be a sphere of interaction and free communication for a community and all its inhabitants. We just do not know what the public and its places are capable of, that’s why we want to interact and learn about.
The HackenPorsche are modified shopping trolleys for urban interventions. Three light and sound emitting satellites played by the artists collective RaumZeitPiraten while getting lost in space and time. With custom-built, sound-reactive LED and laser projectors and light-controlled, musical machines they explore city-scapes transforming streets, walls, buildings into experimental playgrounds.
