He will also participate at the Karachi Biennale and present his work “Echolocation. In “Echolocation” users can choose any location on a map and move through stories posted from there by others on social networks like YouTube, Flickr and Twitter. Here these personal impressions are streamed in real time like windows to our changing world. The viewer participates in the social movements of our time and makes a journey into constantly new image and sound collages in which one experiences local, cultural and linguistic differences and more and more similarities.

We live in a globalised world that is becoming increasingly homogeneous. Languages, plant and animal species are continuously decreasing. Supermarkets, buildings and cities look more and more alike. The work deals with cultural diversity and at the same time with the powerful forces of homogenization that are being exerted on this diversity also in the social-digital realm. It also poses questions about the meaning of this ever-increasing flattening of forms and images.
