  Work Details  
  As part of the Konsum-project 12 artists were invited to intervene in the former Konsum-shops in 6 villages near the Brandenburg city of Belzig. The salesroom in the village Kranepuhl had 5 white lamps hanging from the ceiling. In the basement there was the former coalstorage - a pitch black room.For the installation the lamps were coloured in strong colours - as you would say in german: screaming colours and screams were to be heard. In the black room one heard a cracking sound - again based on the german word knackig - which is a sound term (to crack, to click) - but can also be used in combination with a colour or in this case with black, where it amplifies the intensity.
