In the installation "Why the Lion Roars," temperature determines the sequence in which films are projected. Each film corresponds to a degree on the Celsius scale. If the temperature changes outside, a different film switches on automatically in the auditorium. The atmosphere or subjective feeling for temperature was crucial in choosing what degree each film receives. The work which was commissioned by the city of Paris is being shown in Germany for the first time: an edited version based on Berlin's Tiergarten weather. Sala (Albania *) has exhibited widely including at: MOCA/Miami; Deichtorhallen/Hamburg; and ARC/ Paris and at numerous Biennials.
