Ingolstadt, 06-May-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Audi is to present an impressive 3D video mapping light show at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt in advance of the world premiere of the new Audi A5 Coupe. On six consecutive evenings starting on Wednesday, May 25, visitors will be able to enjoy a spectacular light show by the renowned Hungarian group of artists “Maxin10sity.” Everyone is invited to the show – art fans, Audi employees and their families, as well as people from the region and beyond – when the 2,300-square-meter surface of the building on the Audi Piazza is transformed into a unique work of art during the “Audi Late Light Show.” Entry will be free of charge.
The “Audi Late Light Show” created specifically for the front of the Audi Forum building will feature dynamic sequences of images, energetic music elements and flowing colors. With the help of 55 video projectors each with a light intensity of 40,000 ANSI lumen, the group of artists Maxin10sity will illuminate the exterior of the Audi Forum building and transform the Piazza into a space for a special experience; each light show will last for ten minutes. “This art experience is a thank-you to the Audi employees and the people of Ingolstadt. In Ingolstadt, we have developed the new Audi A5 Coupe, we produce it here, and we will present it here as a new design icon to the world press for the first time on June 2,” stated Toni Melfi, Head of Communications at AUDI AG.
The former Director General of the Bavarian State Painting Collections, Prof. Dr. Klaus Schrenk, a renowned art historian and artistic advisorof AUDI AG, added: “The prizewinning team of Maxin10sity applies the most advanced technology: computer-generated images and sounds create a new visual reality; technology and art merge into one. In this way, the artistic side of the ‘Audi Late Light Show’ provides a spectacular reflection of the technology company Audi.”
