Museum of Cryptography

10. November 2021 – 23. June 2022
Group Show, Museum of Cryptography, Moscow

2021 году в Москве откроется первый в России Музей криптографии.

Широкой аудитории будет представлено прошлое, настоящее и будущее криптографии, математики и смежных дисциплин. Музей криптографии станет новой точкой притяжения на карте города — местом, где доступно и просто говорят о развитии современных технологий.

Здание, в котором будет расположен Музей криптографии, впервые откроет свои двери для широкой публики. В советские годы это была знаменитая «шарашка» в Марфино, где ученые разрабатывали аппаратуру для шифрования телефонной связи.

Важной частью музея станут мультимедийные экспонаты, инфографика и интерактивные островки формата look&feel, а также редкие экземпляры научных трудов.

Внимание! Молодежная команда Музея криптографии сформирована. Подробности

Domestic Drama

14. December 2021 – 20. February 2022
Group Show, Halle Für Kunst, Graz

“Alle Gegenstände, die uns umgeben, haben eine eigene Seele, haben menschliche Qualitäten, weil sie nur in einer menschlichen Welt existieren. Es gibt eigentlich keine Gegenstände, die der Mensch wahrnimmt. Es gibt keine rohen, unmenschlichen Objekte. In dem Moment, in dem Möbel, Häuser, Brot, Autos, Fahrräder oder andere Produkte in unserem Leben auftauchen, sind sie mit uns verbunden, sie sind menschlich.”Ernest Dichter, The Strategy of Desire, Martino Publishing, Mansfield, 2012. S. 93.

Domestic Drama möchte durch den bewusst ​„theatralen Auftritt“ der künstlerischen Arbeiten und die gattungsüberschreitende Art der Inszenierung des Wohnraums eine körperliche Teilhabe beim Publikum herausfordern. Im weiteren Schritt erkennt die Ausstellung Emotionalität als einen wichtigen Faktor für unser Handeln an, das längst nicht mehr autonom von uns selbst sondern auch durch die uns umgebenden Objekte und Prozesse gesteuert wird. Die poetische aber dennoch subversiv-kritische Narration, die in Domestic Drama gesponnen wird, versucht so die Vielschichtigkeit der Fragen, Probleme und Mechanismen, die in unserem Alltag im ​„Zuhause” auftauchen, ins Zentrum der Aufmerksamkeit zu rücken.

Decision Making – L’instant décisif

9. December 2021 – 13. March 2022
Group Show, Canadien Cultural Centre, Paris

Decisions are the result of complex cognitive processes. Considering them collectively when they involve our shared futures makes them harder to make. But, more and more often, we include machines into such processes through algorithms qualified as decisional. Of course, it raises questions that artists know how to put into perspective. Because of the age that we are currently living in, a brief instant regarding the whole history of our planet, is decisive considering the choices available to us for a responsible development of Artificial Intelligence. Therefore, it is now that human rights are at stake, for instance, about what will emerge from the use of our personal data. The consideration of artworks coming from decisive processes connecting humans to machines could only spring us into an immediate future that still belongs to us.

We're famous

July 8, 2008

And more Google map marker conquer public space. Hmm … is this just a poster from the shop owner or a advertisment campaign by Google? I thought they are not running campaigns? Are you famous because you are on google map? I doubt that.

Anyway, Berlin is going to be famous too. The Google car with 6 digi cams on the roof for Google Streetview has been spotted in Berlin. A big discussion on the privacy issue (take care of your cats!) has started already.

Ok, let s have some messages, signs and posters ready for Google …

Hey, this is going to be a huge ‘screentshot’ of Berlin streetart 2008. Let’s get to work …

Fake Real – Real Fake

May 21, 2008

I take it as a compliment like in chinese culture when I find reproductions of my work on the net. This Google Map marker is a nice and very subtle variation of my “Map” installation. And Paul The Wine Guy has a whole series of web/computer symbols in public space in his flickr set. Some well known graffiti artists are cited there, too. But the irony of the collection showed up while I was taking a closer look at the “photographs”. Most of them (or even all) turn out to be photoshoped. In case of the map marker is some 3D involved. Well done, good job, hehe.

The digital to real translation has become so much mainstream that it doesn’t need to be accomplished in physical space any more. Maybe time has come for me to change the plan and to go back into architecture again. 😉

Green map marker

April 13, 2008

Besides the classic red map marker Google has introduced more colors like green for navigation and blue for user content on the Google maps web interface. I am still waiting for the day these icons conquer every day life public space.
Sometimes I find already tiny samples

“Map” during “Sandbox Berlin”

October 23, 2007

I just updated the Sandbox Berlin page with new pictures. Although this pic was taken during Sandbox Berlin I am not showing it on the sandbox page. I still have the Google “Map” marker in my “Inventory”, so I took the opportunity to set it up during the sandbox workshop.

Nice pic, thx Ariel!

Google Map pin petrified

April 5, 2007

The picture shows an ancient petrified Google Map pin. 😉 Michael, who found it says he is passing this place in Kreuzberg Berlin everyday but normally cars use to park on that spot. Of course this story refers to my project “Map” . On Google Maps itself this very nice piece is not facing the right direction to the north and a shadow is covering it partially. As mentioned before some cars are parking on it but the size of the pin is about right. It could be a very early specimen. Look at it in Google Map yourself.

Thanks for the pic Michael!
