Parochialkirche Berlin

 

A church window of over 7 metres high and approximately 2,5 metres wide is replaced by an assemblage of green computer-motherboards with their electromechanical components. Daylight, shining through the translucent green, activates these components through photosensors. The motherboards and their content are sounded out. The sunlight turns into sound. The sounds intensify at varying times of the day, according to the intensity of light.
