Harddisko
harddisko_3.jpg

Harddisko is an installation made of disposed old harddisks. The hard disk\'s cases are removed and a special pickup is mounted on the drive\'s head, connected to a sound mixer. As soon as the hard disks are plugged to the electricity the head starts to generates sounds, because of the start up procedure basic required movements. The conductor of this futuristic orchestra holds a switch (instead of the classic stick) with which he plugs or unplugs each disk, embodying the same On/Off logic of any computer process.
