"Fleischwolf" is an interactive sound installation in the form of a meat grinder mounted on a massive wooden table. Turning the crank causes the machine to emit a sound that initially resembles a very deep bass voice. When the crank is turned more vigorously and faster, the characteristics of the sound change too. At a certain speed, a baby’s scream is recognisable, but due to the construction of the meat grinder, it’s hard to maintain this sound. So whether this scream is audible at all depends on the installation visitors. This work is an experiment in the context of media psychology and interactive art. Although it consists of very specific, interconnected elements, the message it conveys is determined by the experiences and backgrounds of each individual visitor.
