Aphrodite Extended

Karl Heinz Jeron • 2018

sounding concrete sculpture with electronics and fruits, cult, appropriation, tourism

A work about appropriation of the artefacts and their social roles. I bought an aphrodite sculpture at a tourist shop and used it as a model for a concrete cast. Before the cast I put custom electronics in the mold to make the later concrete sculpture sound.

To activate the sculpture you have to connect two wires to a fruit and the battery clip to a standard 9v battery.
