“You went out with your best sweater on
With every intention of dancing till dawn…”Like a waterfall glittering threads flow over the walls of the Kunsthalle Linz and visualize a familiar color spectrum. It represents the for the human visible part of the light. An electromagnetic field also drives the diaphragm of the loudspeakers to convert the signals into sound waves. Every sound brings the exuberant walls into vibration and the equipment to tremble, becomes physically visible and breathes life into the place. The ground wobbles and the shoulders and legs start to beat in the beat.
