Played by nature but operated by humans, the Ceramophone is a strange musical instrument tuned to its environment.
Like reeds, five metal rods are planted in the bank, bent towards the river. At the end of each one, five sounding ceramics are suspended at water level. On the bank, steel balance systems and counterweights keep them in balance.
The ceramics start to whistle when they sink into the river. The musical instrument questions the notion of fragility and the balance of power in this fragile ecosystem.
The user is invited to overturn this stability by tipping the device, then to contemplate the resonance of their action. A dialogue is then played between the place and its visitor.
