Rise by Thamina Rastagar, Tobias Schneider

RISE shows the growth of 6 surreal 3D sculptures. The idea is to captivate an audience with short, eccentric, growing sculptures, as they pass by. Only requiring a moment of their attention, we hope to engrave the evolution of our animations into their minds, as they move along.

From Hamburg with love by Sandy Schmidt and Diamanda Alatorre Hernández

A fantastical journey through Hamburg. The short movie shows a day in Germany’s second biggest city from the perspective of a local. It transports some of the traditional facades of the city to Singapore, with the special appearance of the ‘Speicherstadt’, Hamburgs UNESCO world cultural heritage site.

Neon Lines by Jelena Moench, Eli Rix, Johannes Ohm

A dark room brought to live by two neon balls. One pink, one green. They don’t seem to know each other but after a while they interact. A room constructed of lines appears after the green ball touches darkness. The pink ball is able to go through the walls and the green one is trapped in a cage of lines. What now?


Passing yourself by Katja Fischer, Joey-Dean Woo-Ling

Passing yourself shows two figures in a virtual room which are discovering their inner selves and encountering different personality traits. The virtual space mirrors the reality to draw the viewer into the occurrence and to encourage self-reflection.

Art(ificial) Land by Jan Moritz Mueller, Moritz Schmidt

An artificially created world in the midst of the real, nowadays simply imaginable. We all carry these worlds constantly in our hands and pockets and yet they are invisible to many. Our claim is to put the beauty of this artificial world in the foreground.

About Works from UA BTK Hamburg Desig and Motion Class for Elphi

Sound of Architecture by Laura Gilich, Ties Kozok

These instruments are architecturally deformed in relation to the city of Hamburg. In this Projekt, we want to create a modern and powerful movement and a connection between the round and angular architectural styles of the Elbphilharmonie.


The Sound of Shapes by Ninja Annighöfer, Karl Gieth, Robin Aldag

How can you produce visual music? The Sound of Shapes is basicly a music roll, sized up into a big mashine and adapted to the architectural structures of the Elbphilharmonie entrance. From a simple movement to a transformation, this maschine is creating a graphical representation of music without hearing it.

Shivers by Sven Miller, Marc Nickel

How does your body feel if you hear music? Why does music make us move? What happens to your body and brain if you hear music? Our work shows what is happening in our bodies if you hear your favorite kind of music.

Spiral Suite, Eva Böttcher, Philipp Quast

The Fibonacci sequence and the golden mean are an often reoccurring pattern in music and architecture. In order to fulfill the the requirements of connection Music and the Elbphilharmonie building, we based our animation on those spiral shapes that radiate harmony.


An der schönen blauen Elbe by Jakob Münster, Insa Vollert

We wanted to make an animation based on the circles you can find anywhere in the
Architecture of the Elbphilarmonie. We animated these to the sound of a very well know
classical piece, written by Johann Strauss.
