Conditioning/ Experiment No.49

Material/ mixed media
Measures/ 700 x 700 x 350 cm
2017/ Berlin/ Germany

Set-Up and Execution/
A 4 x 4 m glass case with a steel frame is set up in a room. On one side of the glass case is a door. At the center of the glass case are four mobile air conditioners. Positioned on each side of the glass case at 1m distance is a floodlight (Brut, Dino) directed the panels. The air conditioners are turned on. When the temperature inside the glass case reaches 16 degrees Celsius, the four floodlights are switched on.
After an indefinite time, the glass panels will burst because the thermal stress inside the glass case will become intolerable. The glass roof will probably fall into the interior and the side panels will crack.
