P1 > LIBERTY or (Abraham Lincoln sees RED)
IDEA: The idea for concept the Xperiental picture xXivision
P1 with record cover started between 2002 and 2003. The composition
of the picture DALIVISION of Salvatore Dali with Abraham Lincoln in
cubes and that Dali also designed record sleeves was the reason for the
project. For painting cubes like Dali, are used for these project ready
LP-cover cubes. The realization started at the end of February 2007 with
the test by the Christus church in Detmold on the end of March in 2007.
After the test was conversed with many city governments for a
realization. On the end Hamburg was the city with the easiest and
fastest permissions and best possibilities for the total realization of the
first project of xXivision.
are projects of multi Xperimental active visions. The two forms of
viewing, direct and from the vertical distance, make this form of art to
active and lively pictures like xXivision P1.
The projects of xXivision are
abstract "paintings" with the colour media LP-cover. Many
LP-cover are for themselves own art pictures. xXivision are not projects
about good or not so good designed cover artworks. In the projects of xXivision are integrated many good and a handful not so good designed
LP-cover artworks. xXivision will not give a comment about the quality
of artful designed LP-cover art. Every viewer is also his own art
critic. The part of good designed LP-cover artworks will present special
in LP-cover xhibitions of xXiva.
is a project of art with two viewing forms. At first direct from the
nearness and second, that is a unusual viewing form, from the visual
for xXivision is a high tower with a
public sightseeing platform in a height of minimum 50 meters. On the
ground by the tower must be a big place. The centre of the place must be
a distance between 50 and 70 meters far from the tower. The place must
be complete seen from the sightseeing platform of the tower.
direct near to the many forms of cover gives the viewer the possibility
to view the fascination of the many artful designed LP-cover artworks.
In the same time viewers are now parts of xXivision.
The direct viewers on the ground see now many details inside the
LP-cover formations and configurations. xXivision
is a viewing combination with two different distances for the
interpretation and understanding of one theme. The free formations and
configurations build only in the distance a new totally picture.
distance means here not the horizontal distance. It means here by xXivision the vertical distance. The flat installation is the reason for
the project xXivision to concept the xperimental-art-projects by public
sightseeing platforms like church towers or sightseeing towers. The
concept of the xperimental character is, that viewers must leave the
second dimension to go in the 3rd dimension, in the 3rd dimension of a
room, like xXivision P1. That is another form of viewing.
viewers from the tower seen also a picture in motion, because the coming
and leaving people between the configurations on the ground designed the
project every time new. xXivision is
also a project of more or less fixed and moving configurations and
points. So the viewers from a tower experienced a living picture in
this artful effect of xXivision,
viewers got a fantastic possibility to view the area of the 3rd
dimension with the endless sight to the horizon.
is so a xperimental picture project between nearness and distance and
will invite active to experienced art.
are picture projects realization with LP-sleeves. The sensible LP sleeve
material must be safe for
moisture of the ground. Every LP sleeve has his own plastic bag. For
different effects the LP sleeves are inside or lay on the plastic bag. An
additional foil split the plastic bag of the LP sleeves and the ground.
Steel plates inside the sleeves are for more weight against wind.
SUPPOSITION + PERMISSION:
For projects of
xXivision must be have the local
supposition a high tower with a public sightseeing platform with a
minimum height of 50 meter (ca. 160 feet). From the sightseeing platform
of the tower must be a free view to the place. The tower must be open
for public. Its fine when the tower has an elevator, but that is not a
The place on
the ground must be a free plan area of 50 meter (ca. 150 feet) x 50
meter (ca. 150 feet).
It was great,
when the city government or her administrations understand xXivision
as art and public relation object for her city and to give all necessary
permissions for the project of xXivision.
P1 > LIBERTY or (Abraham Lincoln sees RED)
PROJECT on 4th + 5th august 2007 in Hamburg
by "Michel"-Church Tower
Pictures: look under pictures
the cover, date
P1, the first Xperimental vision-art-project. Is it really to
seen a hidden historical person from the "Michel" church tower
- is the abstract Abraham Lincoln really seen from the "Michel"
is it all fantasy. Reality and fiction is here side by side and a game
for concrete or free interpretation, also like the legendary English art movie "Blow
Up" from Michelangelo Antonioni in 1966, which was an
interpretation of the pixel art technique.
The theme of xXivision P1 is liberty.
Difficult options present this theme in the totally picture. Only from the sightseeing platform
of the "Michel" church tower are the complete abstract
configurations build a new picture. The complete picture present an
abstract graphic. The organic form inside shows abstract Abraham
Lincoln. He was the 16teenth president of the USA and abolished the
slavery for more liberty. The view from the "Michel" about
Hamburg, the second biggest city of Deutschland, to the horizon is also
a great feeling of an endless room and liberty.
On the ground area, the "Michel" meadow, started a
long line from the organic form in right to the "Michel". They split
the area in two sides, in strong graphic forms and in the other side in
free undisciplined graphic forms. In the line are LP-Cover artworks
integrate of PINK FLOYD - THE WALL. These LP-cover artworks are
represent in symbolic form a spirit wall of two sides or systems. In
this line are a few LP-cover artworks with abstract faces. All faces and
all other LP-cover artworks lays in the same right. They have more or
less distance, because for more or less communication. Only one abstract
face lays against the right. Is the position of this face wrong or swims
this face against the stream ? These part of all details inclusive all
the LP-cover artworks of free music and design represent the other form
of liberty and its seen only on the ground. Both parts, from the ground
area and the view from "Michel" church tower build the unit
for the total picture xXivision P1.
More than over 21.000 own and foreign LP-cover
obtained in colour and form. At last ca. 800 right LP-cover are found
and used for xXivision P1
(Abraham Lincoln sees RED). For the background colour was used the naturally
colour of the green grass from the "Michel" meadow. A red
outline around the head split the colours of head and grass for more
LOCAL SUPPOSITION + PERMISSION:
"Michel" church tower in Hamburg inclusive the
"Michel" meadow on the south side of the church tower are the
right local supposition for the project xXivision
P1. The public sightseeing platform of the "Michel"
church tower has a height of ca. 85 meter. Every viewer has the
possibility to go step by step to the sightseeing platform or to use the
The centre of
the "Michel" meadow is 70 meter (220 feet) far from the church tower.
This both parts are the technical options. Hamburg's local city
government supported the project and was very fast with all permission.
the additional option, to design and concept a exhibition at the 3rd and
4th floor in the "Michel"
church tower, a symbol of Hamburg.
The cover self are from different parts in art.
Also the music of the music artists and the artists self. The style of
the music is so different like the world of the animals. You find pop,
about industrial, rock, heavy metal, jazz behind shill-out. The art of the LP-cover-pictures are
designed in an area between 1960 and 2005. Music and there record-cover-pictures
represent often a symbol of liberty.
It was an amount over ca. 740 Cover used for of
the total picture of xXivision P1.
In addition was used 4 cover of Eric Burdon's STOP
from 1975, which marked the experimental field on the "Michel"
meadow. Cover of KRAFTWERK 1 from 1972 supported Eric Burden's STOP.
1st date of
installation in Hamburg:
28th + 29th
July 2007 The installation can
not start, because the report of the weather for this date was
not so good with a
minimum of rain.
New date start on 4th + 5th August
