„Black Body Radiation“ is a multimedia Performance with dance and projections, inspired by Max Planck’s experiments to blackbody radiation.
Blackbodies are not only presented objectively in terms of physics but are as well understood subjectively as a metaphor for a delimited space in which photons, atoms, the mind and the human body act and interact – with other words: dance.
Abstract animated visualizations and recorded footage are complemented by electronic music.
With this hybrid language the production contributes to the interdisciplinary bridge between science and art.
