Travel, Berlin: Photographic Playground – by Sarah Olioff
Alas, a playground for adults! I was eager for summer vacation this year and decided to jump ahead and take my vacation a little early. I booked a ticket and was off to London, Berlin & Sweden for two weeks. While I was in Berlin I had the pleasure of exploring the OM-D Photographic playground group exhibition.
Upon entering the space, my friends and I were given two Olympus OM-D digital cameras with new SD cards to explore. With 4 floors exhibiting the work of 12 Artists, the amount of art was overwhelmingly fun!
The exhibition is designed as an interactive experience for both artists and visitors where you’re invited to discover the installations and artworks with all your senses , while forming and capturing your own ideas from and with the OM-D.
One of my favorite installations was from Sven Meyer & Kim Pörksen titled Sonic Water. They explore sound & visuals by enabling the viewer to interact with a small container of water positioned inside a speaker. As the sounds change, the camera located above the container provides instant feedback as projection.
“Depending on the frequency of the sound and the fluids added to the mix, new patterns are constantly regenerated. From chaos becomes order reflecting the harmonic laws of nature.”
