IF DOGS RUN FREE

Posted on | January 30, 2013

Stylish bar in Vienna’s 6th district. If you were to compare the area that ‘If dogs run free’ is located in to NYC, lower Gumpendorfer Strasse is probably similar to Mercer Street in Soho. It’s cute. Check it out.

Inspiration Trip 2013 #1: Berlin

Posted on | January 29, 2013

2013’s early days and it was time to hit the road again.

5 days in BERLIN: 7 meetings, 3 exhibitions and lots of inspiring networking and catching up with friends.

 

After very inspiring talks with Carsten Fillinger and Gerald Hensel from Scholz & Friends, Stefan Schmidt from Dieckertschmidt, Karsten Warrinck from Ambermedia, Brand Experience Expert Christian Vatter, Photographer and Public Space Curator Gregor Frotscher and Josef Lentsch and Ulf Brandes from the RSA that will feed some new piece of city research which I am currently working on, I was already more than content.

Ars Electronica 2012: Interview mit Julius von Bismarck

Posted on | September 4, 2012

Wer den Raum betrittt, in dem der Versuch unter Kreisen von Collide@ CERN-Preisträger Julius von Bismarck installiert ist, bemerkt zunächst nichts Ungewöhnliches – bis plötzlich etwas in Bewegung gerät. Die Hängelampen im Raum beginnen zuerst langsam und dann immer stärker zu schwingen, als würde das Gebäude schwanken. Jedes Licht folgt einer bestimmten Choreografie. Die mathematisch berechneten zyklischen Bewegungen dabei sind von Wellenmustern inspiriert.

Das folgende Interview führte ich mit Julius von Bismarck im Rahmen der Ars Electronica am 2.9.2012 in Linz (Österreich):
