#REGENERATE14 | Generator Copenhagen
Generator and The Lab Magazine present #REGENERATE14 Copenhagen
#REGENERATE14 will challenge a set of artists and musicians curated by The Lab Magazine to create a one-of-a-kind interactive experience considering the concept of ‘shared spaces’ – how we live and work alongside each other.
Happening across 2 days with daytime and nighttime occasions: art, interactive installations, live music, collaborator workshops, pop up gigs, themed rooms, food, drinks, rooftop terraces, soundscapes and good people.
A weekend of live art, music & performance
This summer, we’re challenging a set of creative minds selected by The Lab Magazine to curate a one-of-a-kind collaborative experience around the theme of social sustainability. Each artist has been assigned a space at one of our properties in Berlin Mitte (17-20 July) and Copenhagen (8-10 August). After Berlin’s success, we’re looking forward to taking #REGENERATE14 to Copenhagen where the property will be transformed for one weekend only with these artists’ work; bringing together Generator guests, the cities young art aficionados and locals to experience interactive art, live music, themed rooms, art creation, pop-up shops and much more.
Stay tuned for more info, but for now meet the artists below and keep up to date with #Regenerate14 on tumblr.
Meet the artists – Copenhagen
David Ogle is a light installation artist based out of Liverpool, England.
His installation filled the space with glowing geometric forms that lit up in response to guests’ movements around the environment. At the centre of the work was be a large illuminated sphere that seemed to emit the other shapes. The space was illuminated using LED ultraviolet lighting activated by PIR (passive infrared) sensors that only illuminate when the movement of a visitor is detected.
Obscura creates light and video installations for concerts, exhibitions and other cultural events as well as their own creative projects. At Generator Copenhagen Obscura will build an interactive LED light installation. Using four connected harnesses the viewers will be given the ability to transform the sculpture into over two hundred different light combinations.
The atmosphere is raw, dark and vibrating and the songs often deal with the gloominess that is buried in the young human heart. It is white-dark noise pop wrapped in a simple lo-fi form. The inspiration can be seen in the late psyched 60s and the early/late black 80s. With a clattering spaceguitar, a riding bass, a dirty beat and a dark/strident vocal, Shiny Darkly is a band that wants to embrace you with noise and love.
Rebecca Halls is a hoop dancer performer, gyrotonic trainer and yoga teacher based in Berlin,Germany. Originally from Vancouver Island, Canada, she has danced her way from Montreal over to Berlin to initiate the international education and collaboration platform Hoopurbia.

Lacy will be creating the set design for performer Beka Hoop at #Regenerate14.
Darkness Falls are a rock duo formed in 2009, consisting of Josephine Philip, vocals and keyboard, and Ina Lindgreen on bass & guitar. Darkness Falls create a dramatic atmospheric sound combining distorted twang guitars, haunting synths, gritty drums and striking vocals. Pop allure turns into noise only to revert back into harmony. Enticing lyrics collide with a drone like base, romance crashes into reality and hope and regret are equal on the scale. The tempo shifts, from sorrow to action, the girls are at the wheel and there is no rest for the wicked. Darkness Falls will be performing at #Regenerate14 on Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 00:30
