Gunnar Green studied Visual Communication at the University of the Arts Berlin and completed his MA in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art in London. He is one of the founding members of the Berlin-based collective TheGreenEyl, formed by Richar The, Frédéric Eyl and Willy Sengewald. Offsprings of the Berlin University of the Arts, they have been working collectively since 2003, aiming to explore the dynamics of unconventional interaction between people, their environment, and technology. With the unrestrained blend of various design-techniques, the collective purposefully escapes any attempt of categorizing its work.
Gunnar Green will demonstrate the Parasite project by TheGreenEyl at Test_Lab: Urban Screen Savers. Parasite is an independent projection-system that can be attached to subways and other trains with suction pads; using the speed of the train as parameter for the projected content, the projection starts with the train moving inside a tunnel. Parasite confuses the routine, habits and perception of the train-travelling-journey: the 'parallel worlds' – projected with Parasite – allow the train traveller a glimpse into a different world full of surrealist imagery.
