Azimuth in New York

AZIMUTH is a project and performance by Maximilian Tausend with visual collaboration from Hanna Fuhrmann at the Chelsey Art Museum August 28th, 2008 at 6:30pm.

New York based artist Maximilian Tausends focuses on the

manipulation of time and music events in real-time through the use of customized hardware and software. Influenced by Jamaican dub and minimal techno, his upcoming performance will employ the use of a "micro delay" effect played through a 5.1 surround sound system in order to shift the perception of space in his compositions.

BIOGRAPHY: Currently working at Harvestworks , former collaborations include visual artists Rikuo Ueda, Satoshi Hata, Martin Grega, Koichiro Isogai.

Hanna Fuhrmann will be his visual collaborator for this exhibition. She is a Photography student at the Ostkreuzschule in Berlin. Her focus is on Urban

Photograph. An important element of her work is the often-disturbing view of the subject inside the pleasantly familiar and mutual elements of a space. The commonly ignored and unseen reality of a city foster a minor change in view on the subject in order to bring contrast to the overlooked and gives it room of its own. This can provoke a
different perspective and nourish more critical thinking. She has worked professionally as a Photographer for the Goethe Institute Jerusalem and privately for various local artists in Berlin and Israel. She uses minimalism to bring an uncommon perspective of the subject and its geometry into frame.
