SPACEFOLDING is a new site specific large scale installation by German sound artist Johannes S. Sistermanns. Working with cling film and sound, Sistermanns creates immersive environments of the highest order by testing the limits of space, sound and silence, and Glad Wrap.
'My approach to space is intuitive, and visitors shouldn't be trying to [interpret] my message - it's not important what I am thinking or imagining,' Sistermanns states.
