After the end of each sound, silence. The needle moves slowly to the centre, the tonearm rises and then returns to its starting position.
The record is rotated.
From ABOVE to BELOW and after a few minutes from BELOW to ABOVE, again and again.

Three transparent curtains, three balls hanging from pendulums in constant back and forth motion, six loudspeakers
In addition to the sound of the three balls bouncing against the transparent curtains, sounds from the underground of the spatial architecture can be heard, the dynamics of flowing and dripping within the conduit system of a sewer shaft, mingling with the vocal range of the human voice. The recordings and sounds come from the 2021 live performance Off ground, in which two bass/baritone singers produced deep sounds in two gullies. Deep bass vocals interacting with the sound of the subterranean architecture.

Sounds and noises from the cities underground mixed with the vocal range of the human voice. Two gully covers, two musicians. Deep bass vocals interacting with the sound of the sewers.
Two bass/baritone singers produce lying deep sounds in two gullies.
The sounds are amplified in the sewer system by microphones through loudspeakers outside.

An anchored, circular, diffuse light source underwater that emits light only upward.
A steady fading up and down of the light at continuous intervals, each the length of an average human breath.

COME TO NOTHING
Space / Sound installation
come to nothing / 2025 Kunst und Kultur e.V., Hamburg / Germany / 2018
A drop of water dripping from the ceiling.
The sound of the drop hitting a hotplate, amplified by loudspeakers, as well as the evaporation as a visual phenomenon can be perceived in the room.
At the same time, the process of formation until the drop falls is projected on the wall.

WINDOW INSIGHT FROM OUTSIDE
Looking through the window, like looking at a target that is not only attracting but at the same time offering a concrete result, a light- and shadow-play is modeling a long laid out, endless looking gallery.
INSIDE THE ROOM
INSIDE THE ROOM
On the left, inside the room, looking towards the window, we see the long recess that houses the model of the corridor.
It consists of doorways arranged one after the other in escape perspective, which become smaller and smaller towards the back.
To the right, running parallel: a track, on it a remote-controlled model car with a lamp. As soon as the corridor installation is viewed
from outside through the window, it is set in motion unnoticed. The up-and-down light source then shines on the long installation from
the side, as if scanning it.
