The installation expresses several types of water sounds that changes over time. For example, there are nozzles that spray a fine mist, which increases humidity and generates a special, wheezing, high-frequency sound.

Site-specific rhythm

Five divided water rays of different strengths. The subtle rhythm of the sound resembles the throbbing of the old-age rails.

At the location you also find a sound installation in the shape of a playing staircase.
