GRLG at 6th Assault – now with video!

From September 26th to 30th 2011 several members of GRL Germany had the chance to be part of this years International Urban Art Festival “Sexto Asalto“!

Light Rider & blitzTag at MAKERPLATZ

GRL Germany is participating in Makerplatz and the People in Beta Festival this weekend.  Details of our activities below.

Mushroom Throwies | Saturday Oct 1 13:00 +  | Planet Modulor Hof (U-bahn Moritzplatz)

Pilz throwies are small textile objects with magnets which can be thrown onto ferro metallic surfaces in and out of reach. This workshop will give you the chance to learn how to sew your own mushroom-shaped yarn throwie. Plant it public space as a soft graffiti intervention!

Light Rider & blitzTag | Saturday Oct 1 | 20:00 +  | Moritzplatz area

GRL Germany will bring our mobile projection unit, the Light Rider, to Makerplatz, and light up the walls with laser-based digital graffiti.  Connecting the various spaces of the Makerplatz and People in Beta Festival, we’ll provide interactive, light-based options to transform these spaces, allowing the public to use the city as their canvas.

These events are part of Makerplatz & the People in Beta Festival

blitzTag in Marzahn

Invited by Sumone Productions for the opening of their Quergange Marzahn show at Galerie M, GRLG headed on a long-ass S-Bahn trip out to the desolate landscape of Marzahn with a 6.5K beamer, a few extension cords, a 25mw laser, and put on a light show for the *ahem* masses 😉
