Interview with Richard Barbrook -“THE GAME OF WAR”

Richard Barbrook and the Class Wargames team performed their new version of Guy Debord’s “Game of War” at the Cyberfest 2008. After the performance we managed to have a little walk through St. Petersburg’s Hermitage where the Cyberfest takes place.

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: “Frequency and Volume”

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s installation is the current free exhibition at the Barbican Center in London. The idea is simple – by walking down and throwing a shodow at the 90-metre long acr of the gallery you tune trough London’s radio spectrum, determining the frequenzy by the position of your shadows and the volume by the size of it. This way , the wall becomes a visuals representation of Londons radio landscape.

But for me the most interesting part of the work is the fact that kids as well as grown-ups immideatly start to play with it, just because the interface is nothing else but your shadow – no explanation needed, just interact.

Superbertram needs YOU!

I lost my memory due to Flickr-Troubles. Somewhere deep within my 250.000 pictures, there was a blurred, shadowed testical, that’s why they just erased/closed my account, instead of marking the whole account as “unsafe”, which is common practice.

And the worst thing: Flickr still refuses me access to my pictures, that’s why i want to do something against this inequity, please join me and find out how to support me at

As long as this struggle continues, i stay in bed and recover from my memory loss.

Sign now, please!
