Singing Patterns

The outer circle of the water tower is closed with a total of over 20km of chain. Like curtains, the chains are hung in the 60 windows. Through the windy location, the chains are set in motion, bang against each other and produce thousands of quiet noises. The different materials of the chains (one material per floor) cause different sounds. Viewed from inside, one sees the landscape through the various patterns of the chains which change over time, e.g. by oxidation. The project is part of the Pepper House Residency for the Kochi Muziris Biennale 2018.
