Light and sound engraving on weathered concrete created by scanning the architectural elements of a bunker wall. Verticality as a concept of resistance. The freezing of time to its absolute limit, made visible as a monolith. This resilient anti-tank wall from the Second World War was used as metaphorical time block in which it served as a projection screen for the imagination and musical expression of resistance. Thus the Walzkörpersperre, itself an object of conflict zone and delay tactics, became exposed to a barrage of light beams driven by electronic sound. The wall, weathered by time and nature, reveals itself in a complex game of asymptotic lines, scratches and light planes.
