es ist wieder laut (it will be loud again), 1995
Audio installation, Courtyard Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken. Curated by Bernd Schulz and Angela Rosenthal.

Simultaneous with es muss frühling sein, Chiarenza & Hauser also realized an audio work. In the inner courtyard of the Stadtgalerie a woman’s voice whispers: “How much does a coffee, a director, an idea cost? How expensive is advice, a border, purity? What is a thought, a homeless person, an artwork worth?“. The audio sequences are activated by motion sensors and played over two loudspeakers; the succession of the questions is arbitrary.

(Excerpt from text by Irene Müller, in: we save what you give, monograph on RELAX, A project by edition fink through Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg, 2006)

Interactive audio installation: 2 motion detectors, 2 loudspeakers, 1 computer, audio files, cables.
