Flying over northen Siberia

January 21, 2009

Normally, a post about a flight wouldn’t be justified. In this case, flying from Schiphol to Narita over northen Siberia while destroying a day in my life at an extraordinary rate with JAL Executive class, I think it worths the post.

Amazing straight lines which I still don’t know what they are… roads?

Northen and southern view just about the dawn…

The views were stunning, you could see small aggregates of lights on a large ice plate, the full moon was on our six, the sun on our twelve… I didn’t slept too much as I didn’t want to miss any impression… the Executive department was almost empty and the stewardesses took amazing care of us.

Meeting Theo again

January 21, 2009

Theo picked me up at Delft CS with his infamous white Volvo. First we went to his old studio which I have to say it’s very beautiful!

Then we went to the hill (Wind Lab), there I met Subalekha and first connection: she was a collaborator at Interactivos08 NYC.

I stayed two days at Theo’s home and it was, as the dutch say, erg gezellig.

Theo Jansen exhibition in Tokyo

January 21, 2009

The amazing experience with Theo and its Animaris Modularius at MNCARS conveyed me directly to assist Theo at his exhibition in Tokyo. The exhibition has been successful as can be. The experience has been overwhelming… and it still is. Details coming in the next posts. I’ll try to update as if I do write here, I’m not walking on the streets of Tokyo.

Animaris at Máquinas & Almas (MNCARS)

January 7, 2009

In the time Máquinas & Almas exhibition was in Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid), I was part of the team that helped Theo Jansen to assemble Animaris Modularius. The following months we performed the beast and I became then responsible for its maintenance.

Hello world!

January 1, 2009

Hello world! is a classic, therefore I’ll let it here.

I’d like to note however that at the time of this writing, I’ve already had two fantastic collaborations. One with Theo and one with Julian. For now I’ll just insert the placeholders and try to edit them in the meantime.
