‘Fire’ is no more. There was some will for it to become permanent. However, this was not to be. On reflection, mounting subwoofers on the underside of the office of the building’s namesake was unlikely to result in permanence. Karl has installed the ‘cones’ in his backyard. He’s calling this piece ‘Ice’.
I am just back from a week in Kyoto, Japan. I went there to begin the process of producing an exhibition for The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto in 2010. While there I visited OMRON, who will be providing sensing and control technologies for the project. I also met with faculty from Kyoto City University of Arts.
I met many people and saw some amazing things, but I think this roller coaster (below) in Osaka was one of the most striking things I saw.
