Hartung Trenz: Type in Motion & Space

“Our works are experimenting with the interaction of linguistic awareness and pictographic association, the ability of word and image to interpret and create.”


Is what an artist has to say verbally more important than his/her visual work? In the case of the German pair Detlef Hartung and Georg Trenz, the founders of Hartung Trenz, they are often one and the same thing.




This couple specialises in relating text-based projects to the real three-dimensional public spaces in which they are projected. The work of Hartung Trenz ranges from the creation of a flashlight to landscape projections.



“The technical requirements and the adaption of the designed projection onto the site are often the same, the difference is the content.”
