En route to Chicago, Thurston Moore and John Moloney hit the recording car and I witnessed the morning “ball drop” for Olafur Eliasson’s genius kinetic drawing machine, which tracked our journey across the US by way of an ink ball tracing the train’s movements on paper.  Watch it in action here: http://vimeo.com/72489795
