VIENNA.-On invitation by Seville Biennial chief curator Peter Weibel the first "anti-pavilion" by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary - a ground-breaking, newly commissioned public structure - premiers as a pivotal work at the 3rd International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville.

The anti-pavilion represents three years of intensive collaboration between Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary and artist Matthew Ritchie, who was listed as one of the 100 innovators for the new millennium by Time Magazine for exploring "the unthinkable or not yet thought". The Morning Line was conceived by Ritchie as an inherently collaborative structure, an interdisciplinary intersection for information congruence, where artists, architects, engineers, physicists and musicians would each contribute their own specialized information to create a new form; a mutable structure, with multiple expressions and narratives intertwining in its physical form, projected video and sound environments.

Matthew Ritchie and Aranda/Lasch's The Morning Line realized in collaboration with Daniel Bosia (Arup AGU), musician Bryce Dessner (USA) and sound artist Florian Hecker (GER); and cosmologists/mathematicians Paul J. Steinhardt (Albert Einstein Professor in Science at Princeton University) and Neil Turok (Chairman of Mathematical Physics at Cambridge University) investigates the question how an architectural language can be developed where geometry and expression are intrinsically united. Made from a universal bit, a truncated polyhedral shape, The Morning Line is a fractal cycle, a model of the universe that scales up and down while also producing cycles or generations of information. "This synthetic process is accomplished chiefly through drawing, where form and content, geometry and expression can become one. This is partly in answer to the holographic principle that the visible universe can be understood as a hologram, isomorphic to the information inscribed on its boundaries. In other words, the universe is a kind of picture." (Ritchie)

The geometry of the structure concurrently housing its essential "invisible" sonic identity generates a unique interactivity: a sensor system registers and responds to the movements of individuals entering and residing inside the pavilion through a scalable form of music, creating and converting them into new stories. The Morning Line, due to it's interlocking system of variable models serves as a large outdoor performance and audience/visitor area and furthermore as a "musical instrument" played by new emerging composers and sound artists in the electro-acoustic medium to present their specifically commissioned work.

The Morning Line is a major breakthrough in the foundation's endeavour to encourage and support interdisciplinary projects based on an experimental notion to explore and cross the existing categories of spatial practice as the pilot project Your black horizon Art Pavilion by David Adjaye and Olafur Eliasson has already successfully proved. Further projects are currently being developed in collaboration with French architects François Roche and Stéphanie Lavaux (R&Sie(n)) for a toxic garden on an Elafiti Island in Croatia and with Hernán Diáz Alonzo (XEFIROTARCH) for an exhibition space in Patagonia. These spaces are conceived as temporary structures in (remote) locations creating immersive environments that allow visitors to actively engage with art, architecture and their respective sites.

The Morning Line as well as the third pavilion project by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary The Garden of Earthly Delights by François Roche and Stéphanie Lavaux (R&Sie(n)) will be previewed in an abstract, model-like presentation at the 11th Biennale of Architecture in Venice.

After its debut in Seville, The Morning Line will travel to the South Bank Centre in London in 2009 and numerous locations around the world. Under the title YOUinverse, Biacs constitutes a distinguished opportunity as a first stop of The Morning Line blending in with this year's theme focusing on a new world created by modern technology in which human beings are the invaluable connection between science, art, technology and media.

Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21) was founded in Vienna in 2002 by Francesca von Habsburg. The foundation is committed to supporting the presentation and production of contemporary art and is actively engaged in the production and distribution of unconventional, interdisciplinary projects.
