Tauba Auerbach and Cameron Mesirow’s Auerglass

Tauba Auerbach and Cameron Mesirow, better known as Glasser, built a tandem organ because they are best friends. It looks completely insane, a giant wooden organ with white leather air bags and Lucite framing holding train whistle pipes. The piece is part of Auerbach’s show at Deitch in New York, “Here and Now/And Nowhere,” and they play it every day in a public performance of dual unification. They also have interlocking shoes. We spoke with Auerbach and Mesirow about the creation and inner workings of the Auerglass, along with Ida Falck Øien, who designed their dresses.

    Fascinating! The pipes are really organ pipes, though – not train whistles…
