in state of descent an empty bouzouki case is presented
to visitors in the fashion of a street musician opening his
instrument case for contributions.
the case is accompanied by a text asking for donations of
single euro cents in order to retune a (absent) bouzouki from
it's standard C-F-A-D tuning to E, F, S and F - the acronym
of the European Financial Stability Facility. each cent pays
for the equivalent musical cent, thus 7000 cents are needed
to retune to E-F-S-F.
should the amount be reached at the end of the exhibition a
hired bouzouki player will retune his instrument accordingly.
