Installation with a tree and 5 Buddhas carved in white marble. Inside the base of the sculptures are hidden loudspeakers. Based on a random program, the Buddhas laugh for 2 minutes, 12 times a year. First just one alone, a second one follows, then the third and so on until all five fill the courtyard of the office building with laughter. Figures 160 x 130 x 125 cm, 3500 kg each.
