ext004 | carsten nicolai. syn chron | book + dvd

syn chron documents artist and musician carsten nicolai’s eponymous project—in analog form as a book and in digital form on an included dvd.

the centerpiece of syn chron is a mobile space that simultaneously serves as a body for transmitting acoustics, a resonant room, and projection surface. this space, which was constructed by werner sobek, is a crystalline architectonic structure whose translucent, synthetic skin is a medium for sonic and optic impulses. electronic music composed by nicolai generates projections of modulated light that are triggered by lasers. visitors can enter the structure and experience it from the outside. nicolai has presented many concerts in this installation, including those at the new national gallery in berlin, at ycam in yamaguchi, and at biennials in berne and singapore.
