Sculpture (2017)

Due to making a visual meaning beyond the sound which is one of the most influential part of our everyday life, the microphones can be an icon to visualize this auditory element. In this chaotic word, the sound itself epitomize the civil and industry. The music, but, is a dynamic voice which comes from the profound site of the history. Choosing the Musikhochschule Leipzig as the site of this work conveys the idea that there are still some public spaces in which we can go back to the peaceful past which exist before the rough industrialization and the rapid  urbanization 


In this installation, the microphones were made by wood which is considered as a symbol of speech and sound performance. They are putted together, but each of them faced a specific direction which makes the denotation that the sound come from every corner of the Musikhochschule! The combination of different sounds around this installation both enriching the experience of the public space and the meaning of the artwork. Through this work, the artists tried to create a connection between the sound which is generated inside of the Musickhochschule and the one comes through the walls which is created by metropolises.
