Christoph De Boeck approaches sound as a visual and tactile medium. His interactive installation Steel Sky confronts the visitor with an acoustic representation of his electrical brain activities : a ceiling of steel segments responds to his state of consciousness in real time. The intimate topography of the cerebral cortex of each person walking under the roof, is mirrored as pins hit different locations on a matrix of steel in shifting rhythms and combinations.
