pol air - Föhnorchester 2009/10

played installation for eleven hairdryers, ice and eight loudspeakers

They seesaw in a circle, in blacklight but so gay, melting the ice, blowing their gear boxes raw ..


Eleven hairdriers stand on small metallic pillars of different size in a hemicycle around a small black table. A black light lamp and an orange chunk of ice hang above the table. Eight loudspeakers stand in a circle of about 8 meters diameter around the installation. When the hairdriers are blowing they are melting the ice. It starts to fluoresce and to drip onto the black slab. This drops are pushed back and forth by the blowing hairdriers and depending on their position they create different rhythmical patterns which sound out of eight loudspeakers.
