Light Is a Kind of Rhythm
December 2009
Light Is a Kind of Rhythm provides a speculative history of cinema: Alena Williams investigates the relationship of light and moving images from an early moment in the history of film to that of the present day. She assumes that contemporary artists like Jan Hammer, Jutta Koether, Andreas Wutz, Die Tödliche Doris, and Matthias Müller return to a 1920s-style engagement with cinema.
The study TOURISM | DISPERSION | CAMOUFLAGE, by the Chilean architect Luciano Basauri and the Croatian designer Dafne Berc, deals with mass tourism as a continually expanding industry and societal phenomenon, whose negative side effects allow a rift to form between tourists and the residents of destination countries. Here, the authors are less concerned with the present condition than to present new ways of reading the dis-course on tourism’s developments, and to reveal new solution strategies.

Whether in the urban context, within existing spaces or outdoors, Schillig develops felt objects that can simultaneously be garments, living space and communications devices.
