Intermedia (Introduction)



Sound sculptor and media artist Timo Kahlen (* 1966)
has been creating subtle, intriguing, eye- and earcatching,

temporary media sculptures and sound installations
for more than 25 years.

Presenting challenges to our imagination and perception,
Kahlen has chosen to work with new, often unusual,
transient and ‘immaterial‘ media: with wind and steam,
with light and shade, with pixels and dust, with sound,
vibration and noise.

"It‘s a paradox. In the dirty twittering,
gurgling, hissing, roaring, growling, whistling,
thundering, humming, droning, grinding,
snapping, rustling and crackling noises
we discover unexpected beauty...”
