Attached to the top of a fire escape, the copper pipes are over looking

the cityscape of Glasgow. As the sun is getting ready to set the

wallpaper stripper starts heating up its containing water.

Soon steam starts rising out of the pipes and with it a whistle emerges.

The collective tone created from the four pipes salutes its surroundings

and announces its presence. Effected by the gush of winds the pipes

sings in and out of tune while the steam swirls in mid-air imitating the

smoke rising from the chimneys of the city. They sun makes its way

behind the horizon as the water evaporates, and finally sets in silence

into the dark.
