2-part, street organ sculpture for the musical display of six newstickers (each day during the exhibition)
and air pressure controlled punching machine

Each day during the the exhibition the artist selected six news headlines of the day, punched them with the air pressure controlled punching machine on black paper rolls and delivered them to the museum ground where the exhibition took place. The street organ sculpture - a visual mix between a futuristic robot and a historic vehicle - interpreted the punched letters as music. Every day people could listen to the latest news in an abstract musical way delivered by the street organ that was pushed through the Kunstareal.
