Symphonie der Neustadt

Sound-Installation
Sonic Territories, 2018

in cooperation with Raphael Haider


The work „Symphony of the New Town“ deals on an audiovisual level with the growing of the development area Aspern-Seestadt in Vienna.

Sound and Noise from the construction sites were recorded and localized.

These form kymatic sound patterns geographically arranged in a water-filled aluminum basin.

For this purpose, a composition was created that was translated via the vibration of transducers - and finally creates the kymatic sound patterns on the water surface.

one cubic meter of intrusion

Installation
Univ. for applied Arts Vienna, 2018



The installation presents the original content of a “trunk compartment” with the size of one cubic meter, which was the reason for a court trial in 2017-2018.

The case has the potential of “the theater of the absurd” - so has the judge´s decision that is read as part of the installation.





Crosswalks

video projection
Soho Ottakring, 2018



The work „Crosswalks“ reflects on a strange effect of the global metropolis.

The many encounters that always take place are meaningless. Anonymity serves as protection against the loneliness.
As soon as we leave our place of well-being, we move through the city like machines, alien controlled by the duties of our everyday life.
The architecture is the rule of this  urban coexistence.
This includes the Crosswalk as a „Encounter-free“ place.

Copperwaves

kinetic installation
36|Project Cell, 2017



In his work Copperwaves Felix Dennhardt converts auditory events into visual.

Usually copper is the transmitter of signals - here it is their representative.

The kinetic sculpture made of vertically arranged copper bars moves sublimely based on the supplied acoustic signals.
The acoustic signal is translated into a kinetic movement by means of robotics.
