The 60-meter sound art installation Time Lines by German artist duo Martin Recker and Paul Hauptmeier explores the fleeting nature of events and the passage of moments within the context of a multidimensional perception of time. It touches upon the impending tipping points of global climate change as well as personal experiences of disorientation in time. The audience embarks on a journey through a dreamlike corridor of sound, rhythm, light, and water. The elements create a surreal, dystopian rainforest, where water drips onto metal plates from a height of six meters, lights stretch and reverse the perception of time and sounds pass you as musical shadows.

Paul Hauptmeier caught the attention of the festival organisers’ in 2022 at the Venice Biennale, where he participated with the site-specific work Diaphanous Sound. Both Recker and Hauptmeier are co-founders of ZiMMT, a music and technology center in Leipzig.
