3000 recycled loudspeakers are put together to form a single sound sculpture at the ZKM, Germany. The sculpture is named as “Sound Temple”, and is a Project for the Sound Art exhibition. The object to build this sculpture is to inspire people to express their feelings by calling on a specific number.
The sculpture is made of recycled materials only: The framework is made of 3000 recycled loudspeakers; rest of the sculpture is made of some mixed electronic parts, ten recycled radios and tuners, ten recycled amplifiers and one mixing board. The design is an inspiration of a Greek building called “THOLOS”. THOLOS is a sacred building in Greece which is considered to be a platform for communication with GOD and hence a relieving place for locals. Therefore, Sound Temple is also built keeping in mind the same cultural feeling of relief, by freely saying whatever you feel like on the phone and which can be heard by everyone through loudspeakers. The voice of the people is converted by radio receivers and is heard through loudspeakers.
