Timber la Ruine

An abstracted tree trunk (9 x 5 x 3 meters) breaks through the floor and extends in the middle of most of the darkened room. The broken, seemingly completely dead trunk is a sounding body of a quiet repetitive sound installation. Cables grow from its broken branches. This tangle-like, tangle of mostly capped, torn-off electrical conductors connects the trunk in places with objects that are formally reminiscent of oversized sirens or megafones.
In these eight objects (each 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 meters) screens are integrated on which a video can be seen. They brighten the room, fill it with “moving light” and sound it with a “surround sound installation”.
Light and sound elements of the “sirens” enter into dialogue with the sound arrangements of the tree trunk through changing image / sound rhythms and silence phases. With the help of sculptural and audiovisual means, the installation creates a moody room atmosphere.
