The City with A Diamond Heart is the third city in Flux City 6 curated by Seth Timothy Larson and Abigail Entsminger. It is a four-week and four-city cycle of creation, destruction, and rebirth. The site-specific interactive sound sculpture embodies the Buddhist doctrine assert of impermanence. The piece was built in 6 days on-site, on view on the seventh day, and destroyed by the audiences before midnight. The interactive sound device is designed by artist Patricio Jijón. The destruction is a series of experimental sound performances by 7 independent artists curated by Patricio Jijón. The night opens with the wearable neon interactive piece” Impermanence” that triggered by the pulse by Sheri Shih Hui Chang. The piece was completely ruined by performance group Shadow Traffic’s violent alien invasion before midnight.
