My Local Rathaus
Throughout the day I am reminded of the time by the ringing of the bells at the Rathaus down the street. I forget how powerful these instruments are, how difficult it is to both record them and play them back (note the distortion coming from your speakers). As mentioned in a previous email, Adrian Villar Rojas cast -- but most importantly -- filled a similar set of bells for dOCUMENTA (13). What might Rojas be saying about time, recurrence, remembrance and memory?
