(Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
“1st soldier with a keen interest in birds:What? Ridden on a horse? King Arthur: Yes! 1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: You’re using coconuts! King Arthur:What? 1st soldier with a keen interest in birds: You’ve got two empty halves of coconut and you’re bangin’ ’em together.” This installation consists of a video projection of a clip from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and two coconut halves. By bangin’ ’em together, installation visitors can start both the video and a race between two knights of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Ritter der Kokosnuss was shown at the Ars Electronica Festival 2006.
