Laser art & Lightart
Laser- & Art
Innovative light and laser installations in unusual places. For these projects we use beams and the interplay between forms and colors. Experimenting with light leaves room for innovative ideas and new technologies.
In this way, content for reflection can be conveyed with light art in a very vivid way. Light art, for example, offers cities and municipalities a special platform to stage their own history for longer periods of time. A light art installation that shapes a cityscape for several weeks can thus fascinate countless people. This creates curiosity, which invites to various actions around such a light art installation. Photographic competitions, discussions and various events that take up the theme of a light art project are conceivable. Ask us - light artist Andreas Juergens certainly has the right idea for your occasion to inspire people with laser art.
The art projects are thus a purely artistic examination of the medium of laser. Compositions of rays and playing with forms and colours is the content of such light art projects. Experimenting with light creates space for innovative ideas and new technologies - laser art!
They also inspire their guests and visitors with an extraordinary light art project. It is not high-tech that creates success here, but the atmosphere that we create for you. Light art / laser art offers here a very special possibility to inspire old and young alike.
For many well-known artists such as Stefan Sous, Lars Ramberg & others, we have already realized the most diverse lighting installations scattered all over the world.
Thus, we silently and extravagantly set buildings, rooms and products in the scene. Also, a single correctly placed beam becomes a bridge that connects.
Not high technology creates the success, but the mood that we create for you.
Own laser and light art installations of Andreas Juergens
Here you can see my own light art projects. AS laser provides the most fascinating light source for myself, I always try to take my fellow men onto the journey through this new world. Detached from commercial thoughts, these projects are about light as a pure form of art expressively transmitting feelings and messages.
Bridge to the stars! A light art installation of Andreas Juergens
A greatr project that was received very positively in the area of Deggendorf and was covered widely by local media. Several newspaper articels, some of them covering whole pages were created, even a photo contest to find the best laser photograph was initiated. With this extensive media coverage I reached my goal to make people think about other thoughts than daily life. The project was started in february 2018. For almost 3 weeks, a simple green laser beam was mounted onte the Sternenwarte Winzer pointing at the 6 km distant beautiful Asam church in Altenmarkt / Osterhofen. The beam enlighted the dark winter time and above all people became curious about it. During that time, many people visited the Sternwarte to see the source of the beam and get information about the spectaculous nightly laser installation.
Below you can read my thoughts about the project. But the most important aspect is to make people think about what is happening above us in the stars.
Thoughts about the project
Where are we? Where am I? In Winzer or Osterhofen, this could be the simple answer. That is probably true, when I see a green beam of light in the sky that doesn´t seem to fit into my everyday life at all. A green cut in the night that wants to forward the light of the stars. Caught in a clear night at the Sternenwarte Winzer. As a bridge of light towards a place of reflecting and contemplativeness. A place that is rushing through space at the speed of millions of kilometers per hour on a small dust fragment called earth together with our sun and other planets. An important thought, where am I really? I am not only here, where I stand, butr also very real within a nutshell, in transit through a cold and hostile ocean of infiniteness. Luckily I realize that I am not alone - that should calm myself. Just deenergize and make myself clear how small and unimportant we are on a cosmic scale - then my own problems probably appear less huge. Be it the quarrel with a neighbour, acolleague or a friend, things lose its importance and you don´t take yourself too seriously anymore. Actually we all sit in a nutshell, this is not only a saying, but clear scientific reality. Would we really take in this thought, myself included, we probably had a real chance for achieving world peace. Sadly, the fighting in between the boat passengers is just about to break out greatly. Who e.g. should include all the people who are urging to get upstairs from the bottom decks because of the stench downstrairs? Or those from cabin 1980 - they have simply more bananas then we here in cabin 2018. Surely, there is no need for a long wait, before the first are starting to pull out their knives again to put an end to the injustice. Or until someone on the lower decks finally has enough and can´t bear the stench anymore - and decides to blow a big hole in the walls of our beautiful ship? Then, all the bananas in cabin 1980 aren´t worth anything anymore and in some other cabins, the song "we are great again" will silence quickly.
Peace is not for free! Instead, it relies on giving those having less a part of the cake. At least that much, so everyone can live in peace and dignity. Of course, this cannot happen from one day to the next, because also me I don´t want to give up too many of my valuables - but it has to happen. Nationalism is nothing else than egoism on a national scale, inevitably leading to war and suffering. Or does anyone know a case where two egoists were imprisoned in a cell and survived for a long period of time?
My light bridge is a symbol for the fact that the peace we are so proud of really is very small and fragile. The beam is lighting only a very narrow strip of the darkness, as our peace lasts only for rediculously short 73 years. Before, there was a timespan of 1700 years, where never more than a few decades people lived in peace.
The beam should light up every day´s life, even if the beam becomes part of every day´s life itself after a few days. So should every spectator of the beam think about himself and hopefully discover new views. The light bridge transmits the light of the stars into our danube valley. . Light, that was underway for millions of years - many of the stars we still can see in the meantime don´t exist anymore because of a supernova for example. Surely, space still holds a lot of secrets. Everybody interested can go on a discovery trip together ewwith the team of the Sternwarte Winzer. The planetarium is open every friday even in case of bad weather conditions.
The laser beam is ending at the beautiful Asam Basilika in Altenmarkt. the baroque church is a symbiol of mediation and calmness, where people since its construction come together seeking for a connection to heaven. Special thanks to priest Emanuel Hartmann for his support and help. Very special thanks to mayor Jürgen Roith and the community of Osterhofen and also the team of Sternwarte Winzer, who all helped to make this project happen.
