INFO
The Museumsquartier (MQ) is a large cultural area in the 7th district of the city of Vienna, Austria. It is home to a range of installations from large art museums like the Leopold Museum, the MUMOK and the Kunsthalle Wien. Under a commission from the art collective “Lichttapete” for a projection design, the MuseumsQuartier (MQ) in Vienna regularly presents the work of Tim Schmelzer in the form of façade and ground projections. A highlight here are the projections on the façade of the Leopold Museum.
Projection design for the Austrian environmental protection organisation Global 2000 at Austria’s only nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf. The plant was the only one in the world to be completed but prevented from going into operation by a national referendum.(Projection technique by Lichttapete)
In remembrance of the nuclear catastrophe in Fukushima in March 2011, the patterns of the reactor blocks of the Daiichi nuclear power plant were projected onto the facade of the Leopoldmuseum in Vienna. In addition to symbolizing the far-reaching global impact of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, the deliberate selection of the projection subject for the intervention drew attention to the trivialization of the disaster and its consequences by the power plant operators and the Japanese government. The deceptively playful patterns decorating the facades of the Daiichi reactor blocks were transferred to this public location as a symbol of the act of trivialization. The facade projection was also indicative of the global downplaying the dangers of nuclear energy by power plant advocates.(Implementation by Lichttapete/Tim Schmelzer)

Radio Österreich 1 presented an artistic collage from Tim Schmelzer in reference to the novel Ulysses of James Joyce.  The subject was presented in June 2015 by a static light projection at the facade of the Radio-Kulturhaus Vienna during a 24 hour audio drama broadcast of Ulysses by Radio Österreich 1. The artistic collage shows in graphic elements the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of one day, the 16th of June 1904. The “stream of consciousness”, the  stylistic central element of the novel, inspired Tim Schmelzer to his visual speech of orderless fragmentary arrangements of images  in relationship to the adventures of Leopold Bloom.(Projection technique by Lichttapete)

reflexion

Tim Schmelzer created a video animation entitled “re:felxion”, which was presented during Innsbruck Night 2016 on the façade of the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce. The video animation derives three different meanings from the term “re:flexion” and represents them spatially.  A round body (flexion) emerges from a monochromatic room with recurring (re:) cubic wall distortions, which turns into a ball.  It mirrors itself and reflects the room and surroundings in front of the building (reflexion).  The room is also mirrored, allowing the mirror ball to contemplate its own reflection.

Ö1 50 Jahre

The video installation was made for Radio Österreich 1 (Ö1). Fifty clocks symbolised the 50 years in 438312 turns of the short hand in fast motion. The generated divergence of the clocks produces a twist of the minute hand, and symbolised the time difference of analoge clocks. The counting hours started at the 1th Oktober 1967 stopped at 1th Oktober 2017.
