Open the Night (En)

room 19 ECHOES


Open the Night is a sound walk in public space using geospatial audio technology via the mobile app Echoes. This technology enables sounds to become activated when a device using GPS (a mobile phone held by you, the visitor) enters a specific zone.

For hearing people, this means you will need a smartphone or iPhone, as well as headphones, to participate in this artwork. You must be physically present at this location to access the walk.

Simply put on your headphones and explore the area outside the train station to discover what moths have to say about light.

Also available in German and in German Sign Language (DGS).
