The Morning Line is a groundbreaking experimental project by Matthew Ritchie designed with architects Aranda\Lasch and Arup Advanced Geometry Unit, commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, which explores the interdisciplinary interplays between art, architecture, mathematics, cosmology, music, and science. Developed since 2004 as a research / investigation for a new pavilion The Morning Line is challenging architectural convention: The team of collaborators has designed the first semiasographic building, an architectural language that directly expresses its content through its structure – a structure that is simultaneously generating itself and falling apart, enclosing an interactive environment inside which a possible future can be seen – and changed.
Inaugurated as part of the 3rd International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville, curated by Peter Weibel, The Morning Line will stay on the grounds of the CAAC as a public art / sound structure until the winter of 2009. Music by Bryce Dessner in collaboration with David Sheppard and Evan Ziporyn, Jónsi & Alex, Mark Fell in collaboration with Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Florian Hecker, Bruce Gilbert, Lee Ranaldo, Thom Willems, and Chris Watson.> >
