Souvenirs, 2007

Material: camping table, portable radio, fan, folding chair, aquarium, paper boat, loudspeaker, house plant, cardboard, wood, thread

A plant is positioned in front of a loudspeaker. The leaves are drawn in one direction making it look as though strong wind was blowing. The loudspeaker emits sounds reminiscent of the sea. This sound stems from a radio, which is not receiving a radio station, but broadband noise.
Two threads connect the radio’s volume control button with a fan moving back and forth and thus continually turning the sound up and down again. Two more threads lead to the aquarium where they put into motion a little boat on the water.
