Thanks so much for sharing our next project, Maximilian!

***Here is a corrected link to the project on the Accumulations website:

For some context, here is Maximiliian's artist biography:

Maximilian Goldfarb is a maker of unsettled objects and soundscapes
presented through methods of installation and transmission: Forms of
production include books, objects, site-based artworks and experimental
radio programming. Goldfarb has completed works with support from the Harpo
Foundation, the Elizabeth Graham Foundation, the Pollack-Krasner Foundation
and the Experimental Television Center. He has participated in numerous
exhibitions in venues including Sculpture Center, NY; Stadsgalerij, NL;
Western Front, BC; and White Columns, NY. A recent fellow at the MacDowell
Colony, Goldfarb is co-author of Architectural Inventions (Laurence King
Publishing), an archive of contemporary visionary architectural drawings.
Goldfarb is on the faculty of the Department of Art, University at Buffalo.

Next projects in this series are coming soon!

Once again -- we welcome any thoughts and reactions to projects presented
as part of the program this month. We also welcome any and all members to
join the conversation by sending any projects you're working on that
explore intersections between networked collaboration, distributed
storytelling and digital community building.
