More Than a Slide Show – Animating Folders of Photographs


For more than fifteen years, remixing and animating folders of random images has been a recurring challenge for Stefan Kraus (, especially in the field of corporate events. While most video artists prefer to work with (sic) video files, Stefan has always given favor to sequences of still images. In this presentation Stefan wants to share some of the experiences he made while trying to create the mother of all audio driven slide shows and how the discovery of Texture3D TOP has changed his game.

Stefan Kraus

MXZEHN The work of Berlin-based VJ artist and director Stefan Kraus (*1974) explores the fusion of media, space and performance. 
Emerging out of East Germany’s vivid electronic music scene, his work soon moved beyond the experimental club environment and into the world of art exhibitions, media festivals and theater performances across Europe. MXZEHN visuals are not a collage of prefabricated loops but the live performance of a – custom built – generative visual instrument. Parallel to his artistic career Stefan has been teaching interaction design at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar where he co-founded the Genius Loci Weimar festival, an annual competition for architectural projection mapping. Today Stefan is more than ever driven by the idea of the “Gesamtkunstwerk” – an artistic vision that completely immerses the audience.
