apple made of heating rods (230 Volt) / graphical re-presentation of its presence on the www / picture of its verbal description

hot apple focuses on perception and its meaning to the body. The object, made of heating rods, gets to glow by high voltage. Its picture is then posted on the www and finally converted to text. Hereby, the difference of an unmediated perception of the „hot“ apple to the understanding of its mediated „cold “ iconic and its symbolic re-presentation is to be experienced. In addition, the apple metaphorically represents a sexually connoted western cultural symbol.

In 1995 the wo-man-sized hot apple (380 Volt) was made for a feminist project series at DOKU Graz.

Due to the power of the heating rods is a continuous sound of 12700 cps, based on the carrier (60 cps). This exiting monotony of these two synoid sounds is contrasted by an artificial noisy musical figure.
Sound: Werner Jauk
