details to be announced

June 12: Parade
Max Goldfarb’s Mobile49 (M49), a functional-symbolic emergency vehicle, will engage with the Hudson Flag Day Parade spectacle on Saturday June 12, 2010 (http://hudsonelksflagdayparade.com/). Central to Deep Cycle, the M49 will be a motorcade participant, displaying newly-completed customizations for mobile, solar-powered transmission, and towed by oxen along the parade route. Additional performative elements will be presented from the vehicle throughout the parade. Viewers are invited to experience the parade on Warren Street in the City of Hudson at 2 p.m.

June 13: Procession
After appearing among the fire brigades and marching bands of the Flag Day Parade, the Deep Cycleproject will unfold along a carefully established path constructed around a stretch of Route 23 from Hudson to Cairo, NY. Deep Cycle threads together a constellation of area-specific performance incidents using the truck itself as a framing mechanism and as an instrument for articulating the work through low-power radio transmission and web streams. The program ties together conditions, histories and interpretations of sites that are not conventionally or geographically associated as a function of its mobility. Thematically; consumption, waste, destruction and transformation are at the core of Deep Cycle’s narrative.

November: Publication
Texts, transcripts, drawings, photographs and more will be included in the subsequent book to be completed Fall 2010.
