"I can't really take credit for choosing Markus Linnenbrink's Wasserscheide to represent the new Living with Art. The truth is more that it chose me. I was looking for something else-an immersive installation based in digital technology, ideally by an artist outside of the West. As always, I wanted something that was visually compelling, perhaps even a little mysterious, something that invented readers in. I rifled back issues of periodicals, looked through monographs and exhibition catalogs, searched gallery and museum sites. In the process, I stumbled on a series of photographs of Wasserscheide, and I threw my preonceived ideas out the window. There it was. Bands  of vibrant sherbet colors, dripping down the walls like overflowing fountains, seductive and deeply pleasurable. Radiating diagonals playing games with perspective, pushing against the architectural space, warping and bending it. I had experienced one of Linnenbrink's rooms last year at a gallery in New York. It was like walking into a painting. Why hadn't I thought of him before? Above all, I was drawn to the open entryway in this image, with its promise of something tantalizing beyond. Living with Art opens onto just such a world. Please enter it." -Mark Getlein
