DAS FINSTERE TREIBEN [The obscure activities]

H 1.0 m / W 1.5 m / D 1.5 m
Wilhelm-Lehmbruck-Museum, Duisburg

Two rubber membranes screwed together with aluminium rings form a flexible body. This is connected to a compressor via a hose system and is immersed in a tank filled with black coloured water. When the compressor controlled by a timer is switched on, air is pressed through between the membranes. The body surfaces and becomes established as a floating, lens-shaped structure. When the compressor is switched off, the enclosed air escapes through a valve and the object sinks.
