The intention of "Syn Chron" is the creation of an integral sculpture bringing together light, sound and architecture. The interior space is both a resonance body and a projection surface. The sound is created and transmitted by many excitators hanged on the exterior skin of the crystal. The light is projected on the polygonal surfaces by four lasers.
