Big Data - I have nothing to hide: opening 03. Oktober 2015
“Individual web pages as they first appeared in the early 1990s had the flavour of person-hood. MySpace preserved some of that flavour, though a process of regularized formatting had begun. Facebook went further, organizing people into multiple-choice identities while Wikipedia seeks to erase point of view entirely. If a church or government were doing these things, it would feel authoritarian, but when technologists are the culprits, we seem hip, fresh, and inventive. People accept ideas presented in technological form that would be abhorrent in any other forms”
- Jaron Lanier,
We're at maybe 1% of what is possible. Despite the faster change, we're still moving slow relative to the opportunities we have. I think a lot of that is because of the negativity... Every story I read is Google vs someone else. That's boring. We should be focusing on building the things that don't exist.

Triggers and Thresholds: 12th and 13th of September - Casa Essen
The Jens Mauritz Orchester visited our venue in essen as part of the Ruhrtriennale! It was a pleasure to support their work and hopefully the journey to the roots of music never stops."Music plays a big part in everyday life, but what is it exactly? When does sound become music, how does it relate to language and what might be its evolutionary function? For their upcoming concert Jens Maurits Orchestra is in search of all the triggers and thresholds that had to be overcome for music to arise."
