here), but the star of the show for me was the installation Variations by French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot. He started his career as a composer, and in many of his works the element of music is still playing a key role. Variations consists of three circular pools of flowing water in which dozens of ceramic bowls of various sizes float. Every random collision of two bowls produces a tone - the sound of which depends on the size of the bowls involved. The result is an unpredictable sequence of notes, which has a distinct zen like character. A sample can be seen and heard in this video (not mine). More about the artist in the linked Wikipedia article.
