Art Description

Installation: Glass, multiplex, Metal, Kinetic, plants on Glass, Sound, Wood, Bronze, Iron.

The original concept of this site specific installation has been changed and additions are being made in order to exhibit the work in more veneus and to improve the concept in order to contemplate on the speed of nature.
The 2.0 version consists out of two evaporating systems which control the entire installation. One is pitching the sound and one is controlling the loudness of the sound.

The new evaporation system is situated in front of two windows. Plants are used for 'speeding up' the evaporation proses. When the water is evaporating the vases are getting lighter and will pull the valves on the organ pipes so the sound will be pitched higher in a very slow sequence of one week or more depending on the heat of the location and the amount of sunshine coming trough the windows. In the 2.0 version the adaptation is even more interesting because it deals in a lot of ways with the architecture it is exhibiting in. It highly contributes to the overall concept of nature versus culture.
Also new is that the air pump is hidden in a wooden box with a rubber skin around in order to reduce the noise of the air pump. When pumping air into the organ pipes the rubber skin wil swell up by the same air pressure.
