For LOODD French artist Rainier Lericolais created a wax cilindre, one of the first inventions (invented by Edison) to record the human voice. This object, now obsolete because you need a specific machine to reproduce the recording, is presented as a precious object. The viewer/listener can download the recorded composition via the webpage of the artist. This confrontation of an ‘out of use’ object and our contemporary online world gives it an new life.
