In our loud, fast-paced world tinnitus affects an ever-increasing number of people. The symptoms manifest as high-pitched sounds that can cause great discomfort. For victims of tinnitus any negative focus on sound can intensify their distress. On the other hand, pleasant sounds and memories can create a soothing effect.
To let people know that the Tinnitus Center in Frankfurt is there to help we put gently worded messages next to music boxes playing "The Sounds of Silence." Our goal was to create an emotional experience – aural islands of calming poetry – all over the city.
