David Hochgatterer

2016 | Student Prize Winner

The Austrian audio installation artist created TIME TO X which transforms the fourth dimension, time, into a geometrical expanse. A short audio file is sliced into short fragments, mapped on a horizontal array of 96 loudspeakers and played back simultaneously so every acoustic element of the sound is continuously audible. Hochgatterer studied Art and Design at Linz and previously worked at the Linz Opera House.
