Two shop windows at the Waldstrasse are fitted with loudspeakers and microphones with built-in acoustic modifications, which play back the sounds from the other location. Thus, the interactive sound installation KAPSEL / ECHO CHAMBER creates defamiliarized acoustic access to the other soundscape. Artistic interventions visually reproduce the existing architecture, enhancing the effect of elements and is mirrored between the two locations. The interplay of these audiovisual interventions creates a capsule of otherness, a glitch in the reality of the everyday urban scenery. What is more, KAPSEL / ECHO CHAMBER invigorates familiar spaces as spaces of possibility, as free spaces that invite you to indulge your imagination and let your thoughts run free — beyond the borders of the visible.
