One's own movement within the space sculpture locates the harmony of tone, form, body, eye and ear. The tone line gestalt, gradated in time and space, becomes a self-encounter, a hasty flowing-past, an accompanying gesture, a measuring of close or vast. The visible sculpture is superimposed by manifold acoustic architectures.
Kaskade In the open, kidney-shaped interior of the 12storey stairwell, six parabolic bowls are hung at angles. From the parabolic bowls, narrowly concentrated sound beams are projected downward onto diagonally hung surfaces, and from these reflected to the steps and the walls of the staircase. A stepwise descent of sound turns into an acoustic cascade. From the central cascade, a circulating auditory space forms, made up of sound reflections and visual-haptic sound manifestations. One can fathom its depths as one climbs the entire length of the stairs.
