Excerpt from the Song of Rage and Longing:

“Several on-going letters of sincerity from the United States and around the globe are sent to the ancient center of Athens near the Acropolis. Writers are asked to express their passionate dismay, their poignant pleas, their will and affirmation for a different administration of our dimension. In keeping with the idea of democracy and a heterogeneous blend of voices, those desiring to participate need only log on to the Rage and Longing site to send their personal missive…
In Athens, these multiple thoughts/voices, arriving through an online interface, are projected within a rooftop installation overlooking the Acropolis. As each missive arrives, it is immediately printed and an interpretive/administrative committee edits together an official text – a new agenda created on the spot through arguing, editing, cutting, pasting, and whimsy. This is made into a large, ‘canonized’ book. Sections of the official text are then given to a Greek chorus to sing. This amplified song of rage and longing fills the area.”
