    The artistic climax of the exhibition is the “320° Light” installation by the group of artists URBANSCREEN from Bremen. It takes the cathedral-like beauty of the Gasometer as the starting point for a fascinating game with shapes and light. Within a radius of 320 degrees, graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high interior wall of the Gasometer. The observer experiences a non-stop interplay between real and virtual space, in which the Gasometer seems to dissolve into its own structures and yet finally repeatedly reverts to its clear shape.
    Points, lines and areas trace the elementary components of the surrounding architecture. From single dimensionality to three-dimensionality within the scene setting an imaginary space is developed. The basic graphic elements predominantly appear as a white full tone and reveal their second function when in the illuminated square the characteristic blackish-brown surface of the interior becomes recognisable.
    Sounds fed in via seven channels supplement the space-defining effect of the installation. The composition is built up on the existing room sound and its natural resonance and hence forms an organic unity with the visual level of the work .With more than 20,000 square metres of area played upon, the installation is among the world’s largest and technically most sophisticated interior projections.
