Affected, as we all must be, by the great uncertainty and anxiety generated by humanity’s present existential situation, the visitor is offered an opportunity to escape the stress of everyday life and the worry caused by living on a distressed planet and enter into the realm of “ParaEarth”, a universe of micro- and macroscopic wonders, flora and fauna and inexplicable, timeless movement and phenomena in a stunning atmosphere of images and sounds. It opens a space into which one can immerse oneself in a world of cosmic, transcendental and surrealistic scenes and in the beauty of nature, color, shapes and sounds.
Media artist Valerie Schaller and Sound artist Christian Tschinkel create an environment which invites one to pause, opening up a parallel universe in the midst of urban hustle and bustle. Surrealistic images, inspired by natural patterns, staged movement and a monumental sound-sphere give birth to a kind of room that is at once nourishing and regenerating, thought-provoking and pause inspiring. The artists deal with a similar themes and have discovered in ParaEarth an exciting way of juxtaposing their respective mediums.
