"Bringing light-sound-motion-space together, the installation weaves AKM’s place in Turkey’s cultural memory, its current rejuvenation, and our collective future into an immersive experience in 3 parts.
 

At the entrance GATE, formed by light rods, invites people in with a special light and sound choreography, using excerpts from past performances and symbolic representatives of our memories about the space.
 

With MOMENT, visitors find the chance to experience the moment they are in, through twin LED tower corridors they pass. A spatial choreography formed by more contemporary expressions in sound and light, combined with visuals creates a hybrid experience.
 

At the end of our journey, TRACE offers an interactive experience area, where people guide the sound and visuals representing the future with their own body movements, leaving a trace to the future with their momentary acts."
