    Two bright orange, almost hemispherical bowls are opposite each other on the banks of the Emscher. Together they form the "Flüsterbrücke" because the installation invites for communication from one to the other bank. Words that are whispered in the bowl on one side, can be easily understood on the other side across 60 meters, since physical laws of sound transmission are used optimally here.
    Fascinated by the phenomenon that he had first observed in the vaults of a monastery, artist Jan Bormann developed this imaginary bridge, so-called for the sound transporting trays or "steel shelves" from the Afflerbacher Bödenpresserei. They are the last steel sheets that have been made here on the former Phoenix steel terrain before the plant was closed in 2010.

    If you can and an escort is with you, try the Speech Bridge. We were very surprised about the quality.

    Two bright orange, almost hemispherical shells face each other on the banks of the Emscher. Together they form the "Fьsterbrücke", because the installation invites communication from one side to the other. Words that are whispered into the bowl on one side can easily be understood on the other side at a distance of around 60 meters, since the physical laws of sound transmission are used optimally here.Fascinated by the phenomenon he had first observed in the vaults of a monastery, the artist Jan Bormann developed this imaginary bridge by using so-called "steel floors" from the Afflerbach floor press for the shells carrying the sound. These are the last steel sheets manufactured here on the former Phoenix Steel site before the plant was closed in 2010.
