Berlin based artist Thilo Frank invites the visitor to explore his spatial perception through movement and sound.

‘EKKO consists of 200 wooden frames revolving once around their own axes around a circular concrete path. This inner form is enclosed by a fencelike structure consisting of another 200 wooden poles. Depending on the daylight the shadow play creates alternating patterns – from further distance the sculpture flickers in a moiré effect. The visitor is challenged to perceive and explore the three-dimensional shape.While moving through the sculpture – built-in microphones pick up the sound of the visitors and a computer sound system filters and remixes the recorded sound and sends it to built-in electrodynamic resonators – the sculpture becomes an instrument and plays a constantly changing soundtrack. The work acts as an archive of sounds and at the same time the visitors’ perception of space and presence is amplified.’
