David Ebner, born 1988 in Trier, is a sound and installation artist based in Berlin. He studied Intermedia Design at Trier University of Applied Sciences under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Gunnar Schmidt. Ebner took part in international exhibitions in Carlow, Krakow and Paris. His body of work comprises sound sculptures, objects and installation in public space. Ebner focuses on the aesthetics of working materials such as wood, concrete, lead, and gelatin. Sound is often used as an immaterial augmentation to breathe life into the static objects and to add a wider spatial dimension.
