Description

Two bronze sculptures pee into a basin with the contours of the Czech Republic.

Annotation

While they are peeing, the two figures move realistically. An electric mechanism driven by a couple of microprocessors swivels the upper part of the body, while the penis goes up and down. The stream of water writes quotes from famous Prague residents.

Visitors can interrupt them by sending SMS message from mobile phone to a number, displayed next to the sculptures. The statue then 'writes' the text of the message, before carrying on as before.
