Contraptions, kinetic sculptures, Rube Goldberg machines... I love this stuff.
Ronald van der Meijs, has brought together two artificial lungs, smokes hand-rolled cigars, and four recorders (a bass flute, alto, tenor, and a soprano) for a sound contraption he calls Play it one more time for me La Ville Fumée in Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, once the European capital of Cigar production.
"In the old days the city was full of cigar smoke. There were lots of mechanical parts, steam, noise, and even whistles to start the work in the old cigar factories," Meijs says. "So this installation is in many ways a metaphor for the cigar production of Eindhoven."
