Peter Hofer - A Pataphysical Train Ride 2003
The sonic sculpture “A Pataphysical Train Ride” transforms the space audibly into a moving entity. It asks the question “when does the train station pull into the train?” This challenges the traditional mode of how we interpret our perception of moving objects (i.e. trains). The rigid conception that the station building remains fixed, whereas the train moves along the track, is inverted into the opposite. Not as an exercise in lateral thinking but as a valid and true interpretation of the phenomenon of movement.
