United in Diversity – A facade projection installation on the occasion of the Luminale 2016 in Frankfurt. The theme of the generative installation are European symbols and the official motto of the European Union, “united in diversity”. The starting point for the light installation is the European anthem – an excerpt from the prelude to the Ode to Joy from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. This is graphically interpreted into forms and colors on the facade of the Eurotower in Frankfurt. Whilst the anthem is the inspiration for the basic graphical patterns, some of Europe’s empirical socio-cultural facts are used to alter the generative code into ever changing structures.
