From April 11 to June 30, the front hall of Berlin’s Berlinische Galerie will be filled with the new sound installation from artist Nik Nowak called ‘Echo’.
The award-winning artist (who recently took home the GASAG Kunstpreis 2014) uses autonomous robot drones and shifting sound systems to explore the acoustics of sound and how it is perceived when rendered echoless. The paramilitary effect of the installation is intention; Nowak’s work actively explores the collapsing border between private and public, and between civilian and military applications.
Taking inspiration from his love of technology, performance, music, and sound, Nowak creates “Echo-Drones” that interact with the visitors, taking their sounds and reverberating them back in different forms.
