The video installation „Urban Symphony“ is an audiovisual narrative that transforms the sounds of the city into a unique sensory experience.

Viewers are visually guided along a path in a stylized white landscape. A white space, a canvas for their own imagination. Free from any distractions, allowing the focus to be on the sound of the city. The sounds are overwhelming and chaotic at first, then become quieter and begin to organize themselves. An urban cacophony that develops into an almost musical composition.

„Urban Symphony“ asks: when do we perceive the sounds as just noise, when do they become a rhythmic signpost or an exciting story? Through the alienated combination of city sounds and abstracted landscape, the installation creates an impressive experience that poetically captures the complexity and dynamics of urban life in a poetic manner.
