Instrument

June 2011


a street performer with a wooden suitcase. looking for the right spot to unpack her instrument. When she found one, she takes the lid of her suitcase. revealing a glass plate and metal contacts on the inside. She asks bystanders to contribute bottles of water, which are then attached to bottlecaps in the suitcase. When she collected enough bottles, she starts performing. By squeezing bottles, little streams of water flow over the glass plate, connecting contacts and generating sound. The performance continues until all bottles are empty. Then she closes the box and leaves her spot, on to the next performance. The only thing she leaves behind is a puddle of water on the ground.
