THE ALARM CLOCK

Its construction began February 1991. It had two programmable functions of alarm clock to the choice: the first engaged the stereo chain during half an hour, then started the coffee machine. The second was more draconian and reserved for the difficults "day after": the gong started to sound, then a ball of game of bowls rolled in a toboggan to go up finally thanks to an elevator, while glass filled of water, went down little by little to flow in a container. During this time, ten engines involved each one a different function, bell various hammer or movement.

One even could see a climbing plant also there, a fountain, a camera which took the witnesses in photo each hour, a hammer struck the gong....

This piece was destroyed in 1997 (lack of place...)
