  4. Construction of one of the last pieces to be built on Rheinelbe, former coal mine turned forest in the middle of Gelsenkirchen. The piece is made up of leftovers from the mine, transformed into a wind-sound object. As with all the objects in the park, it is a reference to the place's past and memory. Herman's crew is from Ute Timmerscheit's scrapyard in Oberhausen.

    In the past, Herman made a couple of sculptures that had to do with wind. He made a series of wind paintings too, little structures with a paintbrush that would take advantage of the wind energy.

    The Windwaage takes advantage of its position in the park, which is windy, and the wheel at the end plucks the steel cables attached to the tripod body. It creates a sound. The statue, like most of the ones in the park, marks locations, and this area, as you can see in the video is a crossroads. The actual aesthetic of the whole piece is a whimsical reinterpretation of the old mechanical structure, once used for mining, now used to create sound.
