Site-specific sound installation created by Maya Duneitz and Ariel Efraim Ashbel.
It is simply a clock giving the time (the real local time) every hour, like a church-bell clock, but not with bell sounds but with screams. One cannot hear this over the youtube but the sound was coming out of a multi channel speaker system installed inside the old Roller Coaster track. The screams were recorded by Dunietz and Ashbel and the AKA Performance squad, sound made by Maya Dunietz.
It was first presented in Holon in 2007, as part of an outdoor exhibition organized by the Israeli Center for Digital Art. Once an hour, exactly on the hour, a sound system plays a recording of screaming people, when the number of the screams heard tells the time: at one o'clock one scream, at two two screams etc.
