when sound generates architecture...

harter raum: coop himmelblau, 1970

in 1970, coop himmelblau performed harter raum / hard space, an event in which heart microphones were attached to the three group members and electronically connected to three explosive charges two kilometers away. the transmission of the three heartbeats activated the explosions, and three "instant" (and very temporary) spaces were realized.
