The sound installation Giant Pick up aroused protests of the inhabitants of the surrounding blocks of flats in the Eden housing estate, Kazašská in Vršovice. Few days after installing, the sculptor Martin Zet was forced by the organizers to unscrew the giant handle. This recording became a valuable documentary on the history of Czech sound art.
