Applause (1998- )



“Art allows truth to arise.” −Martin Heidegger

The sound of applause echoes in the streets.  

The origin of this sound is created by visitors of a cultural center interacting with the installation titled Applause. Participants spin the bicycle wheel of a replica of Marcel Duchamp’s readymade Bicycle Wheel, 1913, that has been fixed to the floor. As the wheel spins, the spokes of the wheel strike two playing cards (The Queen of Diamonds and The King of Hearts) attached to the fork of the bicycle with two clothes pins. A microphone captures this sound from within the exhibition space which is then carried to the local street outside via speakers at the entrance of the cultural center. 

The interactive installation Applause
acknowledges and applauds the Dada movement as an important driving force in the development of contemporary art.
