The project \"Riding a Train\" is the second event of the HfG Seminar Go Public. This time the venue is Karlsruhe main station. Students of the Departments Digital Media/InfoArt and Communicationdesign show conceptually, analog and digitally realized works at various locations in the station. The aim of the project is to reinvent the station as a cultural space. In the words of Prof. Michael Bielicky \"Go Public / Riding A Train\" is an experimental event as well as an unconventional attempt to confront the people in the train station with art.
\"Get out of the HfG!\" This was the motto of the seminar \"Go Public” initiated by Prof. Michael Bielicky, who has been teaching at the HfG since winter term 2006/2007. He invited Digital Media / InfoArt students to realize their creative ideas in public space. One project of this seminar is called \"Go Public / Guerilla Screening\" and can be seen on 09.02.2007 at 18.00 o’clock on the Marktplatz (market square) in Karlsruhe. Using two projectors, power generators and notebooks artistic works will be projected on the surrounding houses.
For one night, surrounded by nature a media art landscape emerged, which offered a wide range of performance and installations. The experiments with images, light and sounds extended over the entire park. A glowing control system marked the paths between stations. Numerous opportunities to participate and test actively opened a completely new perspective and interest for art to many visitors.
