A field is „planted“ with 48 recycled loudspeakers as archeological artifacts. The loudspeakers „talk“ and „sound“. The loudspeakers are half-buried in the earth and connected to 4 amplifiers equipped with SD cards with voice samples. There are 4 rows corresponding to 4 channels.

The 12-volt system is powered via photovoltaic cells.
The sound : local recordings in the dialect of Schwabische Alb (Hülben in Baden-Württemberg) from 1940s and 50s (birthday, wartime letter, folksong, New Years celebration…)
