Constantin Luser (born 1976 in Graz, lives and works in Vienna) has devised this year’s Belvedere Christmas tree as a playable sound object to be experienced as an exciting interaction between sculpture and instrument, visual and auditory art. Viewers are invited to produce sounds from the museum’s first interactive Christmas tree.
The complex construction of Luser’s Christmas tree is based on a plucked string instrument. Horizontally spanned strings are connected to pickups and audio systems, amplifying the sounds produced by plucking them so they resonate around the surrounding space.
