Kurt Laurenz Theinert plays a keyboard to improvise imagery on 360° projection spaces. He generates abstract graphic materials – dots and lines, colors and shapes – to choreograph their echoes on all reflecting surfaces. For each performance, he will be joined by one improvising musician to add to the interplay of space and time. “Playing is for me an entire abstract process, there is no conceptual thought, no guiding idea and no meaning applied, I just want to explore the dynamics and esthetics of the interconnectedness of light, space, time, the music and me.”, he said while setting up in the St. David’s Church. >>The Interview

Kurt Laurenz Theinert is a photographer and performing light and media artist. His „visual piano“ performances are shown all around the world in Sao Paulo, London, Sydney, Berlin, New York, and Singapore. He concentrates in his work on visual experiences that do not refer, as images, to anything. On the contrary, he is striving for an abstract, reductive aesthetic that has ultimately led him – through a wish for more dematerialization – from photography to light as a medium.
