The other cheek is a kinetic soundinstallation about hurt and retiliation. Physical display of force and counterforce alternate in its tale of an endless boxing match:
Two loudspeakers circulate horizontally in a room. They regularly collide with each other in middle. The loudspeakers alternately respond to the impact by emitting a whining sound. Each time the howling turns into an aggressive scream, which is only stopped by the following collision.
