Imagine that sound never fully disappears and is present in our universe forever. What would it sound like to hear all the sounds of the past and present? How would it change our perception of time and eternity? "RL2000" presents an immersive idea inspired by the recent announcement by researchers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre that they had documented sound waves from the Big Bang soon after the birth of our universe.
The audience is invited to imagine the implications of hearing sounds from the past and to place themselves in a situation where perceptions of time, space and place might be disrupted. Randomly the light switches off for 3 seconds - the duration of time which is the „presence“ in our human perception. Everything before is the past. In these 3 seconds it is dark and silent, only a sculpture (glowing in the dark) stands in the middle of the room.
