Space River by Amadea Low is an international urban media art project that transforms the architectural space and façade of the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall Hamburg into a giant digital canvas. An audio visual journey, Space River is inspired by the concert festival Seidenstraße (silk road) with focus on Maritime Silk routes travelling from China, East Asia to Europe. The artwork weaves together abstract impressions of the water routes, the idea of space, and intangible heritages embodied by blue porcelain. The resulting artworks spurred global connectiveness with simultaneous premieres in Singapore, Hamburg and UK.
This was my Final Year undergraduate thesis project that took about 8 months. The opportunity arose to be challenged and create content for the media wall. I saw this as a chance to use it as a large giant canvas because of my love for painting. I throughly enjoyed this process and spent a good amount of time learning something new and delving deeper into creating media art for urban screens.
