ART DIRECTION 2007 - 2013



When I started working at the legendary nightclub Tresor in Berlin it was just before its reopening in a new location. The former power plant station called Kraftwerk was waiting there just like an unpolished diamond.

The interactive robotic AV-installation SONIC DEGREES OF FREEDOM was exhibited @Ars Electronica Festival 2016. We used the KUKA IWAA robot as the centerpiece of this installation.
