The majority of people experience their environment only with the tactile and visual sense. They do not consciously deal with the everyday noise in their immediate surroundings. Through the conscious experience of the noise world the user can explore its spatial environment, in a different way.


From the various city districts, I sought out individual places which are intersections or play a popular role in the city. Above all, I tried to get a certain sound variance and to capture the individual character of the places. I chose Alexanderplatz, Kottbusser Tor and Warschauerstrasse.

Loud noise spreads over the totality of all sounds and everything else becomes quiet. The aniamtions presents noise in large-area forms.

I recorded 30 minutes of noise at one place and cut it down to 30 seconds. One recording at day and one at night.
