  Work Details  
  static balance works both as a sculpture and as a system to conduct and distribute sound. The shape of the parabolic mirrors with their reflecting surface creates a special acoustic environment that enables occurring sounds to be conducted through the space. At the same time the steel parabolas emanate a specially created sound into the installation space. At several points in the room there are junctions of the constantly bouncing sound signals floating through the space thus mapping it into areas of higher or lower concentration of acoustic information. We are invited to explore the space with our ears and follow the acoustic paths of sound. Accessed 12.06.2009 from http://www.carstennicolai.de/?c=worksandw=static_balance
