I’ve always find the danish word for ‘applause’ funny. It consists of two words that directly translates into ‘applause ointment’. Years ago i tried to illustrate the literal meaning of the word and then I decided to actually build it.
When the cap is removed the sound of applause is automatically played. The tube is constructed of a sound module, light sensor, blackwrap and the top of a hand cream container.
Today the ‘Klapsalve’ is located at Uncle Grey’s office in Copenhagen. At Creative Circle Award 2021 they made the work I applauded the most. In the following week i gifted them my one and only version of Klapsalve, figuring out they were the ones who deserved it the most.
