thilo frank: ekko spatial installation

‘ekko’ by thilo frank 2012, permanent public installation 20m x 3m hjallerup, denmark images courtesy of the artist

‘ekko’, the permanent public installation developed by thilo frank consists of 200 wooden frames revolving once around an axes through a circular concrete path. the inner form is enclosed by a fencelike structure consisting of another 200 wooden poles. depending on the positioning of daylight, the shadows cast 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 installation – built-in microphones pick up the sound of the visitors and a computer sound system filters and remixes the recorded pitch and sends it to built-in electrodynamic resonators. here, the project becomes an instrument and plays a constantly changing soundtrack. the work acts as an archive of noise while the users’ understanding of space and presence is amplified.
