She needs me

Exhibition with a performative action, WIP: Stockholm 2008

18 feeding bottles were put together pair wise in the shape of an hour-glass, the water drips or flows from the upper bottle to the lower. When one of the lower bottles is full I take off the teat of the empty bottle, puts it onto the full one and turn the “hour-glass”. Between the feeding bottles 18 alarm clocks with recording function are standing. Their alarm times are scheduled with a few minutes interval. When they alarm, the sound of a yelling baby is heard. I run forward and push the big snooze button on the upper part of the alarm clocks. They alarm again after five minutes. This continues over the whole exhibition period. In the intervals between the cries the sound of dripping and sprinkling water from the hour glasses of the feeding bottles is heard. SpiralN3
