- active polar reversal observatory, real time data sonification, wall drawings, objects, custom made hard and software - 2012

POLSPRUNG is the first of a series of works which deal with deep time and states of emergencies.
Originating in the immanent threat of an earth magnetic field reversal (in German POLSPRUNG), which happens in average every 800.000 years, the 3 room installation leads the visitor into a disastrous test arrangement.
A polsprung-detector continuously surveys the fluctuations of the earth magnetic field and translates it into sound.
A muon-telescope makes incoming atmospheric gamma radiation audible and relates it to the catastrophic particle shower we can expect during the reversal of the earth magnetic field.
