Ambitious interactive installation The Morning Line (featured on WAN in May 2010) is to be relocated to its fourth and potentially final home at the Zentrum fur Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, Germany. Currently located at Schwarzenbergplatz in Vienna, The Morning Line is the creation of Matthew Ritchie and Aranda\Lash commissioned by TBA21 and is formed using a series of identical modules derived from a truncated tetrahedron designed by ARUP AGU. With 46 speakers and 12 subwoofers, the installation reacts to movement in its surroundings to enable interactive live performances.
“The Morning Line is not only a public art sculpture but also an instrument of advanced music. As such, it depends on being in an environment where it continues to be challenged by innovation and technology, as well as maintaining its concert program based on an ongoing commissions program. The ZKM offers both of these and the know-how and high-level experience on how to work with sophisticated and challenging technologies. It is with great pleasure that TBA21 donates this exceptional work to the ZKM, in a direct agreement with Peter Weibel who also acts on the advisory board of the TBA21 foundation,” says Francesca von Habsburg, Chairwoman of TBA21.
