Artist collaborative

Oskar Schlemmer, whilst working on his dance productions at the Bauhaus, considered Raumempfindung or ‘felt volume’ to be complex challenge; the opposition of visual plane and spatial depth. In order to further explore this opposition, the roof space of the De La Warr Pavilion was transformed into an experiential artwork. The interchanging relationship between the audience, space and geometric form was streamed live to the auditorium.
