Water from the canal, PF waterproof plywood, silicon, PVC suction hose

Installation view at Forgendes, Hamburg

Visitors could stand on the box resembling a podium and feel the low pressure inside it.
The box on the floor of the hall was made almost airtight with waterproof plywood, and filled with water from the canal running next to the building. A suction hose runs from the box to the canal which was also filled with water. Despite this height difference of approximately 9 meters between the hall floor and the water level of the canal, the water remains inside of the box because of air pressure which works on the surface of the canal.
