Laurenz is a live 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 transforms commonplace situations into artistic, poetic and dynamic spaces by the ephemeral means of light. This mismatch of our inner image, created by our experience, with the new experience, opens the perception of the visitors and leaves them in a new cosmos of light, shapes and colours. He plays with the thin skin of constantly varying light on the physical objects - the world is his canvas.

In collaboration with Philipp Rahlenbeck, he invented the worldwide unique instrument "visual piano“ which enables him to fill spaces with lines, objects and colours in real time without using prefabricated clips.

He creates pure visual music – live, abstract and space filling by using 360° panorama projection. There is no technical link between sound and image to enable a spontaneous dialogue between him and the musician. In his compositions and improvisations, he pries open the static properties of his projection spaces in favour of only those spatial correlations that can be perceived in the dynamics.

Laurenz's first involvement in "Our Woods", entitled Magical Creatures in the Woods - Light Drawings is coming up on 25th September!
