Subject: ROEMER XVIII // Tag(e) der offenen Tür(en) in geschlossener

Wegners sound installation deals with the contradiction between ideals
of enlightenment and humanism on the one hand, and the financial market,
profit, competition and human nature on the other. Password-protected
self-presentation increases in our everyday life, the focus of
perception is shrinking to the size of a screen.
Tag(e) der offenen Tür(en) in geschlossener Gesellschaft is based on a
mathematically defined area of loudspeakers and the use of additive
synthesis. Sine waves exponentiate and erase themselves, creating an
audible field, which is shaped by the listener’s orientation and
movement within the speaker field. It is a public sound space, in which
the listening experience is unique; determined by one’s own behaviour,
as well as the circumstances of the installation.
