"When a noise of a close friend disappears the presence remains, but one still misses the essence of their being. So much so, that it critiques one's own inner reasoning.

The ninth in a series of 10-minute videos about the adventures and frustrations of an ordinary (but rather hirsute) General Practitioner. In this one, Dr Hairy keeps trying to fill out his appraisal form - and gets some advice from his friend Grabber about how to do it - with hilarious results! The second of four parts.
At the end of may i went to rome to participate in the Live Performers' Meeting (LPM) - a huge gathering of artists working in the field of live audio-visual performance. in its 9th edition this year, there were nearly 500 artists, giving about 250 presentations & performances over four very packed days and nights.
In September 2009, as part of our media art ecologies pyramid pledge, We Wont Fly For Art,* I took an overland trip to the Eclectic Tech Carnival (and art biennial) in Istanbul, breaking my journey in Linz. I was joined by Aileen and Rob. I blogged and documented the journey with unglamorous tools (a recycled computer and an old mobile phone).
audrey & i were practically running to keep up with aileen as she headed at high speed to one of her favourite wine-drinking places. it's not that we were desperate for the wine (LiWoLi had inexplicably run out of red wine after the first night) but aileen's speed was more because the main street was clogged with dirndls, lederhosen & little wooden hutts selling beer, schnapps & leberkase - an austrian "cultural" event was in full swing, complete with music that would have gone down well in any bavarian biergarten.
