Touched Echo

July 1st, 2008

Touched Echo‘ is a project developed by Markus Kison, a student of the Digital Media Class at the University of the Arts Berlin. It is an installation at the Brühl’s Terrace (Dresden, Germany) to remember the terrible air raid on 13th February 1945. When visitors lean on the balustrade and they cover their ears, they can hear the sound of airplanes and explosions. The swinging balustrade is transmitted through their arm directly into into the inner ear.
I think this is a fantastic project, it’s not obtrusive at all and the visitors are forced into a similar position as the people who had to stand through this horrible event.
