Crying Machine (2005)

A computerized electronic thermometer reproduces the sound of continuous crying patterns which never repeat themselves. The machine monitors the resistance of the electricity passing through it and, by measuring the increase and decrease of this resistance, releases a crying sound in a random pattern. While this is happening, the speakers produce additional fluctuations in voltage. This second source of resistance works in concert with the first, creating endless random crying combinations.
