Pilot #4

Next Stop Brunkan

#nextstopbrunkan

In a collaboration between Smart Kreativ Stad and Stockholm Konst, video art was projected in two stages onto a building façade on Brunkebergstorg.

How can film and digital media change an anonymous neighborhood? Can a building surface act as an ad hoc screen for moving pictures and sound without substantial or intrusive preparations? If so, how would this affect the place? The pilot study took a closer look at Brunkeberg Square.

Locations

The images were projected at Brunkebergstorg near the passageway under Kulturhuset Stadsteatern. At the time, this location was underused..

The invited artists were the duo Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg for stage 1, and Karl Holmqvist for stage 2. Projectors were mounted in the hotel opposite the building. Sound was installed in the passageway beneath the façade and images were projected during each stage. The pilot study required complex technical installations and precision collaboration among the participating organizations.

For the pilot study, two works were screened in urban space. At the location, which at the time was still underused but in transition, a temporary projection area was set up. The results acknowledge that urban space is constantly changing. It also shows the need to incorporate some simple solutions in an urban environment, such as accessing electricity and creating economic conditions for public displays of culture.
