first regular day – February 3rd

burn station

presentation of PLATONIQ: BURN STATION
if u r interested in copyleft licence – look ahead!

caused by lack of anticipation we needed some time to get things settled, for the speaker was french so the lecture was in french (wizkid…!) unfortunately the whole audience hadn’t foreseen that so the event started about 20 min. later because we had to get headsets in order to receive german sync…. reminds me of university… and yeah just a hint… if you want to get headsets you need an ID but not any.. it must be a passport or drivers license… crap**

keynote 01: DOMINIQUE NOGUEZ (paris)

presented by SIMON CRTCHLEY

“l’ humour n’ existe pas” …key sentence from the lecteur

the wise doesn’t laugh he smiles. does humour belong to wisdom… rather not… humour is linked to comedy but it’s not the same.

a theatre/show-person isn’t necessarily a comedian but a comedian is definitely a theatre/show person. Humour is a strategy a trick this means humour is always intended in fact it must be.

in his books breton speaks of accidental humour but that can’t exist besause humour is always councious. In contrast to accidental laughing accidental humour isn’t possible.
humour is what’s left over after laughing. and still, humour contains the best what man can give and exactly this fact is the paradox.

discussion between audience and speaker:
good humour means to understand our life and it’s despair in full amount- it’s the only way that makes it possible. this sentence discribes more or less why i declaire humour as non existant.

irony is the unreal for reality and humour the opposite.

when talking about humour it must be handled like when talking about god you have to try to describe the round abouts because you can not capture it.

because so many interesting things occured i wasn’t able to keep track and write down everything … the famous “where is my mind” feeling appeared….


tick, trick and track

at 9pm we went to the salon to watch the presentation of the “LUCID SOCIETY” with a speech held by MARGUERITE CHARMANTE and a performance by FLESHGORDO aka SUPERMARIO

tick, trick and track

it was very exciting …watch the video.

c-base – February 2nd

so we decidet to go somewhere else, some place were we are “allowed”

and went to the c-base. this is an 4.5 billion years old ancient space construction which was discovered underneath berlin mitte, in 1995 (”!”…)
they say: addictet to the cosmic destination of c-base, a community has spawned to pursue concepts compatible for the future, beyond reach. “wow!!!”
on this evening this meant that they were inviting the digital class of the udk berlin, to make someting like a reality check with them.

then a presentation from hannes koch, random_international, london:
that was pretty impressing:

he had someting like a “glow in the dark” screen and a house painter wheel, he made some pics from people
around him, converted them into black and white pixel-pix and then… he paintet them on the screen with
his wheel…
if this sounds confusing to u, watch the video…

here are another project, that made me forget the owfull start of the evening
:)) (onestly, i’ m crasy about that!)

GPS shoe

it’s a work from a guy from the digital class of udk, this shoe is similar to a gps system of a car;
u can give the shoe the information where u want to go to, and then it is calculating the way, if u r leaving
the perfekt line, it feels like going up the walls of a tube. so cool!
