Project Focus: Down the Rabbit Hole - Acid House In A Subway Station
Mikkel Meyer’s installation piece ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’ lives in an unlikely place - a train station south of Copenhagen. It is also an unusual piece of public art - a composing machine inspired by the 1980s Detroit Acid House. Its creator was kind enough to sit down for a little remote chat about the randomness of old analog machinery, prototyping, and a fascination with coincidence. Pull up a chair!

Each of the first five movements is its own unique composition. “Truth,” the sixth movement, fuses all five compositions into one simultaneous performance. Echoing this fusion, Amani created five paintings focused on raw shapes and colors, each inspired by one of the first five movements of the suite. Amani then combined these paintings to create a sixth: an abstract depiction of a human face.
