Description: 

The installation is an adaptation of the installation Hemmeligheder Bygger Bro (Secrets Build Bridges) by The Overheard. The installation invites visitors to share a secret by talking into the microphone. The secret is then transformed into a percussive sequence that is played back on one of 12 objects. Slowly the sequence blends into a cacophony of secrets by other visitors, played back on the other 11 objects.Ejnar
