The TaxiLink Project is an interactive installation that enables users to experience an authentic distant taxi ride. Sitting in the TaxiLink booth, the passengers join a live ride in and around the city of Jerusalem, experiencing personal interaction with a taxi driver screened through a rear view mirror.

cornea recitals

The Ars Electronica Center, in Linz, reflecting on the Danube.
More than 5000 m² of outer glass utilizing 40,000 high-powered LEDs.

The side of the Lentos Kunstmuseum.
Notice the museum’s name etched in the glass.

A view from a hotel window, after a light rain, of The Hauptplatz – the original market square surrounded by handsome Baroque buildings. It forms the center of the old town. On the eastern side of the square stands the 17th C. Rathaus and opposite it, in the middle of the square, the Trinity Column (Dreifaltigkeitssäule), a 20m/66ft high column of Untersberg marble erected in 1723 in gratitude for the town’s preservation from plague and Turkish attack.

collinear “house of god” comeback

My friend Hermann-Christoph Müller introduced me to a wonderful museum in Köln. Kolumba is the art museum of the Archdiocese of Cologne. The architecture combines the ruins of the late Gothic church St. Kolumba, the chapel Madonna in the Ruins (1950), a unique archaeological excavation (1973-1976), and a new building designed by the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor.

In one of the rooms, they had a Rube Goldberg-esque construction that produced all kinds of sounds with balls rolling around and dropping down on trays, etc. Known as Marble Maze, it’s creator – Manos Tsangaris – referred to it as a “three-dimensional automatic musical machine as a model of perception.” The best part wasn’t sitting in the chair in the middle and being surrounded by these sounds; it was the fact that being an old church redone as an art museum, there was a large amount of natural reverb inside – especially the last room in the exhibition which had the highest walls – and you could hear the mechanics of this installation gradually blur into a sound mass as you walked away from it while exploring the outer areas of the museum. Sounds would fade in and out and overlap – no distinct beginnings or endings – which made it beautifully contemplative. I sat in this last room for half an hour. Audio of the walk-through can be heard below.

Rod Stasick is a composer in the broad sense of the term. He is interested in the creation of event-systems for various situations. Template scores are often created using a combination of graphic signs and symbols that usually suggests a syncretism of styles and methods of performance. Using these methods, he produces works in diverse disciplines (audio, video, text, mail art, conceptualism, etc.) utilizing assorted influences: Eastern Philosophy, Fluxus, The Situationist International, Oulipo, Semiotics, Discrete Event-Systems, random numbers to revamp Zen planning and forms of Information Theory.
