The walk-in SHADOW DANCE MACHINE, created by the artists in Atelier Eastend, is establishing itself as an analogue alternative to digital romanticism. It simulates a city at night, creating shadow plays as if on an assembly line - dancing shadows emerge in the haze of the night.
Mechanical movements behind the veil of darkness are playfully brought to life by several light sources. Visitors can "feed" themselves into the machine, thus becoming part of the shadow dance ensemble and taking part in the production.
Atelier Eastend was founded in 2012 to provide work space for artists of different nationalities, between the ages of 19 and 74, with physical, mental or psychological impairments. The art works encompass a wide variety of opportunities for cooperation, enabling everyone, regardless of ability and craftsmanship, to contribute to the overall picture and take part in its creation.
