A collaborative work between experimental techno producer Kangding Ray (featured below) and light artist Christopher Bauder, SKALAR was a large-scale art installation exploring the complex impact of light and sound on human perception. Installed inside the cavernous interior of the Kraftwerk, the audio-visual experiment pulsated with glorious light vector drawings, attuned perfectly to the multi-dimensional sound design rippling among the concrete.
