RE: A photo ! RE: The nature of the original Time Lag Accumulator

An awesome if expensive thing to do for a loopfest would be to have an original TLA in a room, and have people process through it improvising. I wonderful how difficult that would be

Subject: A photo ! RE: The nature of the original Time Lag Accumulator


from the Art Journal - the full details and a picture!

here is what the plan for the original (architectural) TLA looked like!


The Coe book I have lost had a photo with a girl in it accumulating time

And according to the article

"The Magic Theater was commissioned to the Nelson Gallery-Atkins Museum by the Performing Arts Foundation of Kansas City. The staff responsible for the exhibition was quite large, and was made up of Gallery staff and members from the community. This group was augmented by a great many volunteers who helped realize this ambitious project. The entire project was under the direction of Ralph T. Coe, Assistant Director of the Nelson Gallery-Atkins Museum, and he was assisted by D. Craig Craven, also of the museum staff. "

earlier in the journal was the announcement
"The Magic Theater, an avant-garde exhibition commissioned to the Nelson Gallery of Art by the Performing Arts Foundation, opened May twenty-fifth. It was the most complex and complicated exhibition of its type ever undertaken, and it will undoubtedly influence subsequent developments in environmental and technologically-oriented art. It exploits to an unprecedented degree a mixture of industrial media in eliciting mystical and even occult mental responses on the part of the viewer. The Magic Theater represents a unique collaboration between artist, engineer, and industry, because all three are intimately involved in the conception and manufacturing of the exhibition. Great credit is due to the national and Kansas City industries whose donations of materials and skill have made the Magic Theater possible. The main loan galleries of the Nelson Gallery (four in number) were converted into gigantic chambers of psychic art dominated by eight specially-commissioned pieces from the following artists: Stephen Antonakos, Howard Jones, Stanley Landsman, Boyd Mefferd, Terry Riley, Charles Ross, James Seawright, and Robert Whitman."
