  Work Details  
  Push the blocks along the iron track - either to the left or to the right. The suspension is connected to a computer-controlled CD player. The movements are determining the rendering of the CD. Pushed to the right, the CD is playing forward, pushed to the left, however, the CD is playing backwards, pushed slowly, the CD is also playing slowly (comparable to a slow-motion-mode); when it is pushed quickly along the rail, the CD is playing fast as in a fast-forward-mode. Whenthe block is not being moved at all, the spot on the CD, which was last played, is repeated continuously until the computer switches the sound off after five seconds. The CD concerned is a unique CD, which has been solely created for this purpose; it contains, in relation to the site, a collection of noise from a pig stable.
