Tin Roof


Installation, Mixed Media

ZKM, Karlsruhe

A roof invites you to enter. The visitor is given a headset and can use it to listen into the imaginary house. Through its movement, it selects the different sounds of the inhabitants of the house among themselves. As he walks on the roof, he experiences an acoustic cross-section of the building and the life within it.

He begins to take a more intense interest in the individual fates of the residents of the house. He becomes an observer standing above the inhabitants. The fragments from the lives of the residents are assembled into stories by the visitor.
