          from Feileacán McCormick / Added

          The Porter’s Lodge is an experiment dealing with an obsolete, defunct & dead typology (the Porter’s Lodge having been replaced by the advent of technological solutions, high-speed transport etc.). Through the dissection & (re)assembly of its architectural corpse a new monument-like form takes shape. A form that retains its current absence of meaning & relevance, yet departs a new state of being. One that is both more & less than the sum of its parts, an experience of the dead & obsolete as a valid spatial vocabulary that can generate a more in-depth reflection upon mortality.

            Nine Key Passage a commissioned artwork for Nye Ahus Hospital Oslo 2008 hospital art program curated by Claes Söderquist Nine Key Passage is an interactive sound installation created for the New University Hospital in Akershus near Oslo. The installation is located outdoors along the passage leading to the main entrance. It functions with nine infrared sensor/speaker-pairs mounted into the ceiling of the passage. Passing the sensors activate sound files which are played back from the ceiling speakers. Each speaker is playing different chord and walking through the whole transit creates a simple 9-tunes composition. When there are many people walking to different directions the arrangement gets more complex and endlessly changing. The sound library is controlled by a computer. Every day during one month it selects a new 9-chords set, from 31 combinations in use, and the next month the library gets a new random order. The sound bank is conceived and recorded by musicians/sound engineers James Andean, Jimi Tenor, Mika Vainio and Kimmo Oksanen together with Grönlund&Nisunen. Thereafter the sound material was edited and re-organized and 31 x 9-chords were selected by G&N to get used in the installation. The selected sounds were recorded from various electronic and processed acoustic instruments, a lot's of piano and analogue synthesizer-sounds were included. James Andean picked up his piano chords from Beethoven, Chopin and Debussy's scores. All the sounds are reduced and focusing on the character of the sound itself and its relation to the others. Hospital is a very delicate place for a sound installation with all its implications of life and death. We wanted people to get curious and let them realize the nature of the piece in a slow manner. A tiny feeling of inspiration that a little fragment of a melody may leave was the core idea of the installation.

              More than half the world’s population lives in cities, and that proportion is expected to rise to three-quarters by 2050. Urbanization is a global phenomenon, but the way cities are developing, the experience of city life, and the prospects for the future of cities vary widely from region to region. The Atlas of Cities presents a unique taxonomy of cities that looks at different aspects of their physical, economic, social, and political structures; their interactions with each other and with their hinterlands; the challenges and opportunities they present; and where cities might be going in the future. Each chapter explores a particular type of city—from the foundational cities of Greece and Rome and the networked cities of the Hanseatic League, through the nineteenth-century modernization of Paris and the industrialization of Manchester, to the green and “smart” cities of today. Expert contributors explore how the development of these cities reflects one or more of the common themes of urban development: the mobilizing function (transport, communication, and infrastructure); the generative function (innovation and technology); the decision-making capacity (governance, economics, and institutions); and the transformative capacity (society, lifestyle, and culture). Using stunning info-graphics, maps, charts, tables, and photographs, the Atlas of Cities is a comprehensive overview of the patterns of production, consumption, generation, and decay of the twenty-first century’s defining form. - Presents a one-of-a-kind taxonomy of cities that looks at their origins, development, and future prospects - Features core case studies of particular types of cities, from the foundational cities of Greece and Rome to the “smart” cities of today - Explores common themes of urban development, from transport and communication to lifestyle and culture - Includes stunning info-graphics, maps, charts, tables, and photos Additional material for this book: Cities Featured: Abuja, Alexandria, Amsterdam, Athens, Augsburg, Babylon, Beijing, Berlin, Brasilia, Bruges, Budapest, Cairo, Canberra, Chandigarh, Chicago, Constantinople, Curitiba, Detroit, Dubai, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Florence, Frankfurt, Freiburg, Geneva, Ghent, Glasgow, Güssing, Hong Kong, Innsbruck, Istanbul, Jakarta, Karachi, Knossos, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Lübeck, Manchester, Marseille, Masdar City, Mexico City, Miami, Milan, Mumba, Mumbai, Nairobi, New York, Paris, Pella, Portland, Rome, San Francisco, Santorini, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Sheffield, Singapore, Sparta, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Sydney, Syracuse, Tokyo, Vancouver, Venice, Vienna, Washington, D.C., Wildpoldsried

                • The Warhol Economy, interview question 10 - What is the media's role in the Warhol economy?

                  Which is more important to New York City's economy, the gleaming corporate office--or the grungy rock club that launches the best new bands? If you said "office," think again. In The Warhol Economy, Elizabeth Currid argues that creative industries like fashion, art, and music drive the economy of New York as much as--if not more than--finance, real estate, and law. And these creative industries are fueled by the social life that whirls around the clubs, galleries, music venues, and fashion shows where creative people meet, network, exchange ideas, pass judgments, and set the trends that shape popular culture. The implications of Currid's argument are far-reaching, and not just for New York. Urban policymakers, she suggests, have not only seriously underestimated the importance of the cultural economy, but they have failed to recognize that it depends on a vibrant creative social scene. They haven't understood, in other words, the social, cultural, and economic mix that Currid calls the Warhol economy. With vivid first-person reporting about New York's creative scene, Currid takes the reader into the city spaces where the social and economic lives of creativity merge. The book has fascinating original interviews with many of New York's important creative figures, including fashion designers Zac Posen and Diane von Furstenberg, artists Ryan McGinness and Futura, and members of the band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The economics of art and culture in New York and other cities has been greatly misunderstood and underrated. The Warhol Economy explains how the cultural economy works-and why it is vital to all great cities.
