syn chron is an integral sculpture of light, sound and architecture. the translucent skin of the crystal-shaped body besides its function to define the spatial structure of the object additionally serves as an interface for a synchronized play of light and sound. the object at the same time is a room for spatial experience, an acoustic resonance body, and a projection surface. the visitor is witness to an interplay of electronic sound – transmitted onto the surface of the crystal shape – and programmed laser beams that are visible both on the out- and the inside. syn chron hereby creates an synaesthetic experience: on the level of human perception space, light and sound blend into each other to form a holistic experience.
