Open the Night – Audio walk on the effects of light on insects

Audio walk and talk

Open the Night is a soundwalk addressing the topic of light pollution. The narrative is created by moths who speak to the listener about their nightly experiences around street lamps in Berlin.

The experience uses geospatial audio technology via the mobile app Echoes. This technology activates sounds when a GPS device (a mobile phone held by you, the visitor) enters a specific zone. You will therefore need a smartphone or iPhone to participate in this artwork, to be able to download the Echoes app. For hearing people, please also bring a set of headphones.

What can You expect?

An introduction to light pollution and urban ecologies by British artist Jeremy Knowles (in English with German translation). A site-specific, multi-channel sound walk lasting around 20-40mins, depending upon your engagement. An open discussion and sharing round at the end with snacks and refreshments.

Open the Night is suitable for all ages.

The walk is available in English, German, and German Sign Language (DGS).
