Interactive sound installation
The snack bar is an expression of hectic urban life, but also a transitory site of communication where people congregate, usually at night, for beer and currywurst. On front of the wagon is a sensor. If someone passing by comes within its range, the snack bar sounds change into speech interaction. A voice from the front loudspeaker speaks to them in Berlin dialect. In quasi-dialogue interaction, the wagon broadcasts single words or sentences that allude to the psychosocial and political aspects of the immediate situation.

But the snack bar also treats itself as an art object at the sonambiente festival
