MESO Digital Interiors designed the stage set for the Wirtschaftstag 2000 held by the Genossenschaftsverband der Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken.
While the foreground was kept intentionally sparse, the backdrop featured a monumental 18×5 meter, 24000 ANSI “Lichtwand” rear projection that spanned the whole of the stage of the Jahrhunderthalle Hoechst, one of the largest venues of the Rhein Main region. Three seamlessly connected video projections created a virtual space of very slowly changing atmospheres in which different kinds of information layers were integrated.
The live performance, composed by Werner Cee, with Stefan Hollinger (perc.) and Uta Hinz (voc.) plus realtime generated visuals by MESO’s own Max Wolf was the highlight of the cultural by-programme at the Jahrhunderthalle.
The Jahrhunderthalle Höchst seats about 2500 visitors.
