Tim Tate’s “Ode to Joy” has a detailed description. In the mixed media sculpture, cast glass hands spell out in sign language the words to “Ode to Joy” in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. A video of a tenor singing Beethoven’s work is inside the domed glass, but without sound - which is how Beethoven would have experienced the song - as he became deaf.
The article has a detailed sidebar about Tim Tate's "Ode to Joy" sculpture (photo below by anythingphoto.net).
