C’era una volta il West
electric hotplates, flute kettles (stainless steel), water, automatic timers
120 x 75 x 40 cm (H x W x D)
Two flute kettles stand on two individual hot plates and are heated at regular intervals by automatic timers. When the water begins to boil, the kettles emit a characteristic whistling sound. This creates a kind of dialogue in which the sounds partially overlap and can be heard at different volumes. In addition, the hotplates also emit an acoustic signal. As soon as the maximum temperature is reached, they are automatically switched on and off with an audible "click".
The title of the work refers to the original title of the western movie "Once Upon a Time in the West" and deals with human interaction, although some conflicts could be avoided if one would listen properly.
