Urfixed Light Animation

With its colorful mix of carousels, Ferris wheels, roller coasters and fireworks, the Urfahranermarkt, a twice-annual (spring and autumn) event staged on a fairground adjacent to the Ars Electronica Center Linz, attracts over a million visitors a year. In artist Thomas Schwarz’s time-lapse video entitled Urfixed Light Animation, the Linz native has succeeded in capturing and documenting the colorful hustle and bustle at this very popular carnival along with its transient luminous structures and tonal fragments.
