Interactive Art Installations // Abstract Paintings

For the essence of being human, which cannot be expressed in words, only music, light and color remain.

Picaroon works with light, music or kinetic elements. It is only through the presence and interaction of human beings that the installations come to life and can be fully experienced.

Picaroon seeks to make feelings or philosophical ideas actually tangible to the visitor. For example, cultural enrichment through diversity, the feeling of comfort or the chance to find one‘s own compass through a boundary experience.


Under the name Picaroon, the Munich based artist Rebecca Gischel (1989) creates interactive art installations since 2013.

Her installations have been shown several times at renowned art festivals, such as the Ars Electronica Festival 2013 and 2018 (Linz, AT), at the Kunstareal-Fest 2023 (Munich, DE) or the Aurora Light Festival 2015 (Dallas, USA).

'Picaroon' is an archaic English word and means adventurer or pirate. Depending on the nature of each installation, friends from different disciplines sail along on the adventure.
