Blind Volumes was first conceived as a site-specifc installation for Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, responding to the openly accessible public setting of the museum’s rotunda. Combining film and sculptural episodes inside the rotunda, an expansive, geometrically intricate steel construction consisting of 80 serial steel frames has been erected. The installation in Frankfurt was twelve meters tall and filled the entire lobby of the Schirn. The framework serves as the scenery for a dynamic choreography combining visual imagery, light, and sound: besides the sculptural works One Way Out (2009) and Conductor (2014), and the 16mm film piece Above the Plate and Receiver (2016), it makes up a vertical stage for the light and sound installation Hear, There, Where the Echoes Are (2016) which has been activated by a live performance with percussionist Chad Taylor.
