In Bucht der Träumer Festival near Berlin I co-designed and painted a 15 meter long submarine inspired by Louis Verne’s Nautilus
With the Kamiwaza Crew we built the Atlantis main stage for this 13.000 people festival
From Sketch to Construction
My main responsibility in this Stage Building was the painting the 15 meter long submarine that has about 70 m2 of skin that we decided to make rust looking
The work was way too much to do all myself, so a I received volunteer help. I had to teach my vision to them and learned a lot about project management and to not want to do everything myself. When I clearly communicated my vision and let go of my perfectionism, the result became amazing
Plates were cute & connected to the submarine structure, painted again to connect the different plates, before adding the lighter colours on top of the structure.
I picked 7 different colours to work with, moving from dark red and blue with textures that make the lighter colours come more forwards, to orange and turquoise with a copper finish and rain protective varnish at last
Jigsawing Fin Shapes
Besides painting, I designed and cut the hydrodynamic shapes on top of our Atlantis
Which ended up looking like this all together, with our amazingly strong & creative team, just in time ready for the party to start
Biggest compliment I received was the amount of people who asked who our Welder was!
Bonus: Front of House Design Sketch
The light technicians received a beautiful house from where the last video was shot. I made the design sketch for a small submarine that is accessory to the Altantis mother ship
