Sound Balances

  - five kinetic sound sculptures, 1995

Five kinetic sound sculptures that function according to the principle of balance. The crossbar of a balance holds a stone at one of its ends and a flat water bowl at its other end. On top of the sculpture there is a water reservoir from which the water runs through a pipe and then through a valve down into the bowl.

Once a certain amount of water has filled the bowl, the arm gets out of balance and the bowl becomes a spout, pouring out the water after which the arm swings back. Therefore the stone at the other end of the arm hits on a metal disc generating a sound. Afterwards the process repeats itself.
