I’m currently guest teaching a semester at Merz Akademie in Stuttgart. (Thx to Olia for the invitation!) „For Your Eyes Only“ is the title of the class. We are looking into the hype about wearables like Oculus Rift, Google Glass and smart watches and all these new gadgets. What makes sense, what’s retro lost, how can we combine, what can we make better etc…? Yesterday the students were testing (fake) Oculus rift VR glasses in downtown Stuttgart. What would it be like people wearing those in public space? Today 90% of passengers in public transport are looking at their phones. Why not wearing a full VR (virtual reality) helmet?? 🙂 Surprisingly many people recognized the dummies as Oculus gear. Will we walk around like this in a few years?? 😉

Google Streetview Germany went life yesterday and the whole country goes nuts about it, (not enough blur, too much blur, unblur FB groups etc.) haha …. OMG. After I posted my ‚15 Seconds of Fame Streetview self portraits series‚ yesterday press picked it up and I was featured in two newspapers today. Berliner Morgenpost got it quite right (because they called and I told them the story that I jumped out the cafe and ran actually dancing behind the Google car 🙂
Tagesspiegel (below) got it wrong. They describe me as being mad at the G-car. That s not true!!! I would never do that!!! I used to drive that car too!! 😉 But Tagesspiegel is professional journalism, so they called and will get it right tomorrow with a new piece on me and my work. Looking fwd to that! 🙂 Stay tuned for a scan. (No need to by paper 😉

(Damn, I just realize that I broke that pair of shades I am wearing in the pic haha …;-)
I am waiting for the day when Google will ask us to ’streetview‘ our own houses and apartments. „Look, Tobi has a new kitchen table. Ah, here is his bathroom.“
