The Circular Kiln

Exhibition - Workers in the State Owned Company
Haptic, audio and light installation 9 min. 32-channel audio, 2008

Within the circular Hoffmann kiln, visitors are invited to pick up a glowing white brick and take it with them on their journey through the 80m long firing tunnel. The change in colour relates to the different temperatures within the kiln, illuminating the firing tunnel in shades between white and deep red. The 32-channel soundscape recreates the circular movement of air and fire within the kiln.
