Martin Lehnert: Humans and bats – a multifaceted relationship
The echolocation of bats, which is inaudible to humans, has been processed by sound microscopy
and made audible. Small sound transducers on the glass facade and on the glass objects turn the compositions
audible by means of the oscillations of the glass and thus become a special sound experience in the room.
The glass facade is at the same time the carrier of oversized transparent silhouettes of bats and insects,
whose shapes overlap with the sound transducers. Added to this are images with augmented reality (AR) enhancements,
in which the visitors trigger videos with sound via an image-scanning app on their smartphone and thus become part of the installation.
The bat is artistically thematized as a symbol of the endangered biodiversity in nature als well
as the intertwining and condensation of our world: the world of animal creatures and the world of humans,
who ultimately threaten the space for both by encroaching on their natural habitats.
