Trollb├Ąck's Fab Five Freakout

Published on .

Corpus Artistica
Multimedia design/production studio Trollb├Ąck & Co. (www.trollback.com ) celebrated its fifth anniversary last week with an artsy hoedown at the Art Directors Club in New York. Via an array of 15 video and slide projectors, the Trollb├Ąck team surrounded hundreds of partygoers in "wraparound installations that paid homage to the creative muse, referencing titans like Le Corbusier, Gerhard Richter, Steve Reich and John Cage," according to the company. Driving the festivities were the Cuban orchestra Jose Conde y Ola Fresca, and none other than DJ Spooky, aka That Subliminal Kid (seen in the PDF in not so subliminal denim). The Trollb├Ąckers topped off the bacchanal with a nicely sobering PC touch, however: They distributed cards announcing that the company donated over 1 percent of gross 2003 income, via www.whatgoesaround.org, to eight charities: Art Start; Creative Time; Global Action Project; Free Spirit Media; Henry Street Settlement; St. Jude Children's Research Hospital; Seeds of Peace; Architecture For Humanity; and the Teak Fellowship.
