The Guggenheim has an excellent playlist on Soundcloud with interviews with artists for Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today. Above, you can hear an interview with Carlos Amorales. Other interviewees include Amalia Pica, Luis Camnitzer, Wilfredo Prieto, and more.

To listen to the whole playlist, click here.

In this excerpt from his commentary for the Under the Same Sun multimedia guide, artist Carlos Amorales talks about his participatory installation in the exhibition, which elicits musical responses ranging from the subtle to the bombastic. He also describes making the work in the former studio of sculptor Alexander Calder.

"General Electric plans to announce Monday that it has created a “data lake” method of analyzing sensor information from industrial machinery in places like railroads, airlines, hospitals and utilities. G.E. has been putting sensors on everything it can for a couple of years, and now it is out to read all that information quickly. The company, working with an outfit called Pivotal, said that in the last three months it has looked at information from 3.4 million miles of flights by 24 airlines using G.E. jet engines. G.E. said it figured out things like possible defects 2,000 times as fast as it could before. The company has to, since it’s getting so much more data. “In 10 years, 17 billion pieces of equipment will have sensors,” said William Ruh, vice president of G.E. software. “We’re only one-tenth of the way there.”"
