A large-scale kinetic light art installation

VEKTOR is the latest audiovisual installation by Christopher Bauder at Kraftwerk Berlin. In his most personal work to date, Bauder fuses kinetic light from 50 moving lasers with a self-composed three-dimensional soundscape to create a synaesthetic work of art.
