the Sound of the Earth

GEOPHONE is the landscape sculpture in the "Land of the Green Dragon".

The idea for the landscape sculpture GEOPHON began with a dream. It was so strong that the dream idea had to become the reality.

The shape of GEOPHON is reminiscent of that of the Bohemian Forest (in the Czech Republic), called Šumava, "the rustling trees". Perhaps it also refers to a mythical being, the one which unfolds the spirit of the "Land of the Green Dragon"... A pyramid can be explained logically and mathematically. GEOPHONE opens in an analogous, sensually tangible and intuitive way.

Geophon - sound of the Earth

The term GEOPHONE refers to:

  • a landmark, elevation and niche in the cultural landscape
  • a retreat and liaison for plants, animals and humans
  • a landscape stage, a land-art project or a meeting place for generations
  • a testimony with traces of a new inflaming European dragon myth
  • an anchor point and a gateway to new awakening relations to a different world
  • a gate or impulse to a deep ecological understanding of space
  • a place of longing for our "self-rising" and our "being-relation-to-the earth"
  • a room for our re-connection or even a reorientation
  • a place of power for the perception and the listening in the "belly of the earth"
  • a place for mindfulness or for dealing with decision-making
  • a social shelter for a collectively and creatively designed environment
  • a learning place for the development of individual and community future
  • a "social sculpture" to release socially effective impulses
  • a landscape profile to strengthen an urban or a rural area

The cultural landscape, the quality of the designed places affect the human beings. The careful handling of the place, shape, and space are also important for our well-being and our health.

Referencial Projects

In addition, thoughts "float" independently and sometimes develop in a surprising way. GEOPHON vision has been chosen as one of the top ten project ideas in competition for Pilsen - European Capital of Culture 2015 (in the Czech Republic). It has been realized in 2013 on a modified scale at the garden show in Tirschenreuth (Germany) and 2014 in the Generation garden of Reichenschwand (Germany).
