Surreal Interventions Through Train Windows

Imagine riding through the German countryside on a train. But the view from your window isn’t what you would expect. Instead, there is a real life theatre production of various surreal interventions.

At the end of August 2017, train passengers became spectators as local residents transformed their land into live art. The passengers watched an art project that spanned 30 kilometers along the German countryside.

The artist duo of Datenstrudel, arranged a performance of different encounters.  Passengers were shown a world that demonstrated the effects of speed and perception and how it can impact people differently.

The project took 5 years

The entire project scope was large. As a result,  500 residents and volunteers put on a total of 50 events along the route. The art project, called “Moved Land,” took 5 years to implement in collaboration with the Kunstfest Weimar. Finally, the project came to life in 2017 for the Festival for Contemporary Art.

Live art is creative, imaginative and alive.

The art was so unique to see that it brought on a different experience for the viewer. The art was creative, imaginative and alive.  But, most of all, it was beautiful and thought provoking.  For the price of a train ticket, people were able to connect urban and rural in an amazing creative display of surreal interventions.

Check out the video of the events below and be entertained.

Conclusion

It’s creative ideas through collaboration that result in bringing people together. The further away we move from conscious to automatic, the further we move away from each other.  I want to know what do you think about this project? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
