Wasserzaun, 1990/1991

Sensor-controlled interactive water installation, customs clearance caravan tunnel
Austrian–Slovenian border crossing, competition 1990, realization 1991

Marble plate (17m long), 80 sensor-controlled water fountains


The speed of the sinusoidal wave motion depends on the traffic density and the speed of the passing cars. It requires at least one vehicle crossing the Austrian border mark to activate the water fountains. The moving WATER ZONE lies across the border, crossing it.

From: Ruth Schnell, On the occasion of La Biennale di Venezia 1995, Vienna 1995.
