The Jones Center for Contemporary Art on Congress and 7th, Austin, Texas. The pink sing on the corner was for Trenton Dolye Hanncock, and his show 'The Life and Death of #1'.

The year is 2002. The corner is Congress and 7th, Austin, Texas. The exhibition is Ed Burton, Golan Levin, Jared Tarbell, James Tindall with the Austin Museum of Art and the Texas Fine Arts Association.

The Moonlight installation hangs from metal pipes running along the ceiling. The colored vertical panels represent compositions available for selection. The piece has been projected into a thinly spaced array of voil for an effect of dimensionality.

Golan Levin's Floo and Floccus installation fools the user into believing they are operating the display in private. Where in fact, a 50" plasma display exposes their interactions in great detail. This piece allows users to create beautiful hairballs on a fluid-like surface.

We don't know what to make of it either.

A detail of the high definition pattern interference rendering of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata as generated through the Moonlight MIDI Visualization Engine. Incredible print production and mounting assistance from Jay Long, of Austin.

Two prints of Beethoven's Moonlight sonata lie waiting to be hung. Each print measures 8' in length. Note information of the entire 1st movement of the sonata is displayed using colored blocks and pitch patterning.

Parking and inspiration for next project.
