conflux ll


So, the walkie talkie walks (website is here) for the conflux festival are behind us now. What can I say, it was an interesting experience alltogether. To our surprise we had more participants in-world than we had in New York. Sander was in New York and has been able to explain the principle to many participants of the festival but unfortunately there were not too many people in New York with a suitable phone. We did not really expect that. But in the end a few people actually have been able to perform a walk together. A short walk really. Walking the Brooklyn streets while chatting with an sl avi by mobile phone text messages can be a lifethreatening experience, so keeping eyes on the street instead of the phone seemed like a smart idea. No one died by the way. In the pic above you see Sander, afro marsipulami Taco (from DNBmedia, the owner of the 0031 land), some red bird I don’t know and me, preparing for the first walks. Next to the walks, Cathelijn had one work installed at the conflux exhibition in the glowlab@gitana rosa gallery which turned out a great succes, she has been asked to show work at the Art Basel satellite in Miami. Hehe, lots of goodluck to Cath!
