    Petra Bachmaier

    Multimedia Artist, Luftwerk

    Petra Bachmaier is a multi-media artist who works collaboratively with her partner Sean Gallero. In 2007 they formed Luftwerk creating a unified artistic vision that merges visual elements of light and projected video with sculptural facets of architecture and design. Their installations invite viewers as spectators, as well as participants, and have been exhibited in unique and diverse locations such as Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House and Fallingwater; Chicago's Millennium Park; P3 Studio in Las Vegas; The Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, and an abandoned Woolworth's store in New Orleans. Luftwerk is Artist in Residence of Chicago Ideas Week 2012.
