Leak The Leak
is a sculpture of sound, laboratory pyrex, and water. The laboratory apparatus sits on a small pedestal, dripping slowly into one of three drains on the pedestal. Each drop that enters the drain triggers a whispered fragment of speech from the other two drains, which house audio speakers.
The texts are taken from various 19th century writers on the relation between technology and sensuality. Featured are fragments from Charles Ruskin, Samuel Butler, H.G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling.
