Sounding haptics – haptic sounds.
The light and sound installation of Robert Stokowy is specific to the place it’s set up and was conceived exclusively for the Bunker k101, a large three-storey WWII bomb shelter in Cologne’s art quarter Ehrenfeld. In his artistic research project, Stokowy extracted the essence of the place employing phenomenological practices that ultimately resulted in these sounding interventions.
An immersive construct of sounds extends the multi-sensory qualities of the building and creates room for extraordinary experiences. The intention is to let visitors discover new ways of experience both their inner and outer perception.
