Ekko is an installation by Thilo Frank that records the sound of people as they pass, remixes them, and plays them back.

Ekko is an installation in Denmark by the artist Thilo Frank. The twisting, curvy wooden passageway has contorted beams that loop around.  Microphones are embedded throughout the installation, capturing the sounds of visitors as they pass. The sounds are then remixed and played back as a distorted echo, disorienting and challenging the visitors.

The Creators Project reports that the light also adds to this disorientation, as it enters the structure through the gaps between the two hundred wooden beams. Depending on the time of day, the shadows create different patterns on the interior surface.
