Hotel Beethoven, Bonn

 

In a former hotel room two electric single core wires are connected to the cable of a bedside lamp. They lead to the ceiling and form a space-filling hanging structure. The room has its own shower cabin in the corner. The dripping shower tap is connected to a hose, which joins the electric core wires to form a large entanglement out of water and electric conducting lines. The structure ends above a bonsai tree on the other side of the hotel room. Water from the hose fill a canula attached to the bonsai to continuously drip into its soil. The electric wires are connected to an artificial daylight lamp to give the plant life-supporting light.
