A virtual "apartment" consisting of six separate "rooms" was installed in various locations throughout L.A.. The urban rooms
were defined by individual sculptural elements that were distributed over an area of several hundred square meters, incorporating
available infrastructure and public furnishings. The rooms were temporarily inhabitable and aimed to redefine our concept
of living environments: the exterior spaces took over the function of the interior spaces and the borders between private
/ public and inside /outside were dissolved. The installation was conceived to not only functionally fill the unused gaps
of the city but also to conceptually occupy them. Ads ( "L.A., CA City Apartment, 500 sq. mile + terrace. US $20,000") constituted
part of the artists' public presentation of the project and could be found in American daily newspapers and magazines.
Vienna-based architect Kocevar created "Theater Spaces" by selecting sites in Los Angeles to transform into performance sites.
She built these spaces, in cooperation with other artists and performers, as "three-dimensional instruments" for performance.
Kocevar assigned these spaces, or "instruments," to the functions of an actual working theater so as to redefine the traditional
spheres of actors and spectators.
Artist Flora Neuwirth's work involved "generic objects" (beings) which gained their specific significance from differing contexts.
Known as "Artificial Living Beings," these objects moved through Los Angeles, responding to the city, its architecture, the
spirit of its inhabitants, as well as to social and physical structures and subjective experiences. Neuwirth explored and
documented reality and fiction, irony and ambiguity, and the aesthetics of consumerism. She also collaborated with Andrea
Kocevar in a video documentation of her project.
Austrian artist Jochen Traar addressed individual mobility and transportation as a factor in the structure and form of Los
Angeles. The automobile as a requirement for mobility, issues of public transportation, and the effects of electronic media
(the information highway) on the city and its architecture were the focus of his project entitled "Parking Lot."
