Signal Festival 2021, Prague
For Signal's 2021 Festival Topic "Plan C", Berlin-based Weltraumgrafik have conceived an abstract and hypnotic projection about the cycle of crisis, chaos, tragedy and future. By abstractly translating certain scenes from film history and symbols from the origin of dramaturgy, "The Wind" tries to determine conflict as an inseparable part of every evolutionary process. We live the way we tell our stories. Divided into two parts, the recent past and the near future, "The Wind" tries to provide a positive attitude towards change and transformation.

Monomono - Icon|
Show Production, Audiovisual Concert
"Monomono - Icon" is an electroacoustic, audiovisual live-show.
The audience is invited to encounter light, sound and video projections submerge into an immersive experience.
The music proposes a narrative of forgotten or previously muted female heroines and combines that with the relatively new fear of a complete digitalisation and assetification of all cultural goods through the ideas of Web 3.0. These thoughts are transported in the language of form and content and thus present a counterplay between female heroism and hyperdigitality.
Together with the dutch/belgian musicians and artists Hester Bolle and Anne van de Star, Welt/raum/grafik concepted a flexible stage setup, consisting of two vertical retro-projection screens and produced video and light content for a 45 min live show.
45 Min / Live / 4K / 30p

Motion Graphics for the documentary "Bauhaus Spirit"|
Together with the artist and designer Yorgos Karagiorgos, I was asked to produce Motion Graphics for the documentary Bauhaus Spirit by the directors Niels Bolbrinker and Thomas Tielsch of Filmtank, Hamburg. Released as part of the 100 years of Bauhaus anniversary, the film shows how Bauhaus shaped the past and influences our world today.
For the film we created animations in between the given-historic form and an artistic futuristic style.
The scene shows Dessau's Törten-Settlement and refers to the Bauhaus-Architect Ernst Neufert, who worked out very exact references for spatial requirements in buildings, pictured here by measuring vector lines.

Homage / Collage |
Projection Mapping Jakobsbplan, Weimar
Winning submission for
Genius Loci Facade Projection Festival,Weimar
7th-9th of August 2015
The Weimar Jakobsplan is an architecturally and ideologically functional building. Also by the legacy of the Bauhaus, an architecture was developed, whose function should stand above time-varying aesthetics. The result is gray and barren, nothing superfluous, no round shape forms a variance in the appearance of the facade.
The facade projection "Hommage / Collage" uses in its approach exactly this functional and originally aesthetic background and accesses the base of this historic form language. The animation remains with the basic forms and resignes over long passages to any rounding. Also, by the high contrast, the functionality / the light power of the projector is used effectively.
Another cross-reference to the architecture is the plain style of the animation, which reflects on one of the basic ideas of the Bauhaus: the craft.
Therefore, the production refuses to use time-varying animation- and 3D-software tools, which often, but not always, seem to have predictable effects. All content is animated from scratch and designed almost frame-by-frame.
The collage is aesthetically similar to the method that has has influenced the design of Jakobsplan in the late sixties. Contrary however, with the method of the collage the arrangements of the elements, their temporarily overwhelming circulation and last, but not least, the music, something simultaneously delicate and highly vivid is developed.

Phil Max Schöll is a Berlin-based motion designer and video artist.
He was born in Munich in '82 and studied design in Konstanz and Potsdam. After moving to Berlin and studying motion design, he joined the Pfadfinderei VJ-collective where he was working on live visuals and event conceptions.
After that, in 2008, he founded his own studio welt/raum/grafik (which roughly translates as 'world/room/space/graphics') and wants to stand for clear, well-done vector-based graphics, preferably in non-digital places like in the urban space or for events.
welt/raum/grafik produces videos and creates motion graphics sometimes big, sometimes very simple. Whatever needs to be done, the desire is to make it either unique, beautiful or at least very appropriate.
The video productions so far, have spanned almost all special formats, including 4k-cinema productions, high-pitch-pixel-LEDs, multi HD-projections, immersive 360°installations, mapping and architectural projections.
welt/raum/grafik is part of a collective office network in Berlin-Kreuzberg that is peopled by first-rate creative colleagues, that enable to take on advanced projects from concept to final production encompassing all aspects of design-, video- & sound- production.
Much of the works has met with acclaim and won prizes including several pieces that developed from long-term collaborations with various Berlin-based film directors or the Pfadfinderei collective.
