Hot apple focuses on the sensory aspects of the quality of the work. The object is formed of round heating rods that are made to glow by a high-voltage power supply. With this unmediated hot perception, hot apple refers to the difference to a coded mediatized cold representation on the Internet. The apple is chosen as a culturally related symbol. The heating power of the rods corresponds to a monotonous sound of 12700 Hertz, carried by the 60 Hertz of the mains voltage. Sound: Werner Jauk.
The installation hot apple was created in 1995 as part of the project series “Special exhibitions by contemporary artists & theorists & events & actions” at the DOKU Graz women’s documentation centre.
