Ing. Gattringer and his many charismatic and enthusiastic patrons have gathered much support and a legal and popular foothold for the passenger line and in later years the planetarium, entertainment- and educational center. the so called KEPLARIUM on a prominent location atop Linz’s Schlossberg, and at this date it seems promising the vision is about to unfold onto Linz’s cultural skyline along the Danube shore.
With Erich Gattringer Linz has probably found one of it’s most ambitious architects and enterpreneurs, and all too far from ever becoming reality the project KEPLARIUM and the adjacent planetary shaped aereal passenger line seemed to many when he first pitched it to investors and later the general public.
All the more he was in dire need for an emotionally engaging, historically contextualizing and informative on point summary and introduction for anyone who heard of the project for the first time, in the form of a video.
Who else to ask than for embodying a metaphorically reborn Johannes Kepler, strolling through his former home town of Linz, envisioning a both practical, as well as aesthetic means of transport, tourism magnet and monument to his, Kepler’s fundamental astronomical groundwork, than the professional reenactor, actor and historical guide, and our personal close friend Hubert Krexhammer.
Since we finished the video, much has developed in the project KEPLARIUM.
