Bent forks hover weightless but vociferous in undefined space. With a twist at the end. The sound in this piece is based of the original sound of the silverware, which was made audible later in the final production.

This video projection was shown together with the Object "Spooky Action at a Distance" at the Kunsthalle Duesseldorf in 2012. The art object consists of 68 pieces Silverware which were bent by the artist herself over a period of a couple months. Each fork, spoon and knife is bent without any force of tools but by her hands. These 68 pieces hang together in a cubus from the ceiling, each on a steel string held only by magnets. Through the magnetic attraction and compulsion exists a constantly slight movement between each of the pieces of the Silverware which creates a tension in the work itself.
