Deep Cycle 6.3 – 7.31 2011

0 comments

Lost Coast Culture Machine is pleased to present Deep Cycle, an installation based on works and artifacts from a mobile transmission project by Maximilian Goldfarb. Deep Cycle threads together an array of area-specific performance incidents, text and sound works that utilized an adapted emergency vehicle, Mobile 49, as an instrument for articulating the works through streaming mobile radio transmission. M49 is a solar-powered research and production facility developed by Goldfarb to apply to projects initially activated ‘in the field’.

Each of the Deep Cycle projects were interwoven with sites existing along NY Rt.23 in the Hudson Valley, NY. Projects examine the infrastructure of local settlement, including: a Correctional Facility, Junkyard, Gas Station, Bridge, Cemetery, Water Treatment Center, Power Station, Motor Lodge, Armory and the various unfolding spaces of transit in between these sites. Altogether, the particular details of the map of Deep Cycle are an investigation and response to the terrain, and a prismatic model exploring a speculative, post-oil landscape. Deep Cycle is an ‘autopsy of the road at the end of the highway machine’. – Axel Bishop

Deep Cycle participants include Max Goldfarb, Paul Elliman, David Koehn, Daniel Berry, Ryder Cooley, John Cooley, Garrett Phelan, John Ashbery, Gili Melamed-Lev, Brett Ian Balogh, Dan Beachy-Quick, Bodega Algae/Amber Frid-Jimenez, Brian Dewan.
