installation with four hairdryers, a waterbassin,
a sailingship and 8-channel speaker system

at the corners of a waterbassin four hairdryers are blowing at random intervals by automatically switching on/off through their overheat-protection.
their wind drives a toy sailingboat randomly across a bassin.
when hitting the bassins border an electrical contact is closed with one of the borders eight zones.
this triggers playback of one of eight different sailors songs, coming form eight loudspeakers underneath the bassin.
