The title TIMEPLACE
relates to the work of Kevin Lynch.
There is a skywalk in downtown Columbus which runs from Nationwide Parking Garage, across Front Street, through One Nationwide Plaza(1977), a huge tower owned by an insurance company, across North High Street and then Nationwide Street, before finally exiting at the point where the Hyatt Hotel (1980) meets Peter Eisenman's Greater Columbus Conference Centre(1993). The conference centre was hosting a science-fiction convention (with a steampunk theme) the night of the performance, so conference delegates, some of whom were in costume, drifted through the skywalk from time to time over the course of the piece.
We called around beforehand to find out who had juristiction over the structure. Calls were made to the city, to the hotel, to the insurance company and others. Nobody knew who had responsibility for it. Eventually one of the voice on the end of the line said, "I can't give you permission to have your event, but I'm not telling you NOT to do it either". That was all we needed. There was a live socket in the skywalk which we used to power the laptop and PA system for the duration of the event.
was advertised by word of mouth and with flyers.
