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
Sewing Mushroom Throwies | Yarn Bombing Workshop
Yarn throwies are small textile objects with magnets which can be thrown to 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. Take it home or well plant it public space as a soft graffiti intervention!

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 😉
