"Das XX.Jahrhundert - Kunst in Deutschland", Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin
Flourescent Tubes, Loudspeakers, Electronics
This light- and soundinstallation was commissioned for the exhibition "The 20th century - Art from Germany" in the National Gallery's museums of Berlin. Each of the 18 coffers of the ceiling of the famous Mies van der Rose Building contained a fluorescent lamp, every second of them a speaker. Whilst the lamps - stiffened in a wild movement - were installed in a fixed position, short percussive sounds moved from speaker to speaker along the facade at high speed.
