This work shows a three-dimensional image of the so called »Tupper-Burb.«

The »Tupper-Burp« or »Tupper-Whisper« is the sound of the escaping air which streams out if you press the lid while shutting a Tupperware container. It is probably the best-known demonstration of the airtight tupper-seal on Tupperware-parties.

Reproduced only with the different diameter-sized Tupperware-lids of several generations, this work shows the sound wave of this noise like seen in a waveform diagram.
