Agnès Pe – Mitt Paté number 10

Enter the big house and you know on forehand there is at least three rooms, where you’d like to peek inside. The first room is of a strange luminar quality. Colors seem to have faded; everything is in a glossy black and white, from the times that camera’s were still made by hand. A couple of men, one single woman seem to be frozen, show an eternal smile. There are reel to reel machines and a window that looks over the roofs of a big European city. The second room…

Lord Litter presents THE 14th DREAM OF DR. SARDONICUS

Lord Litter dedicates a complete show to The 14th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus, a festival in Wales. This is psychedelia for you. And probably taking some substances that are linked to the subculture, will make it easier to pronounce some of the names that appear in this list. And this might come in very handy, if you have intentions to visit the festival, and the screen of your navigation system looks like a liquid light show. You can always ask one of the Celts you meet on the road. As…

Adrian Shephard – Books and Corks

When in a train heading north, I saw headlines pass at the bottom of the screen. One of them said that a gigantic toxic cloud was drifting over Berlin. I had apocalyptic visions of people dying in the streets, and thousands and thousands on the road, who tried to escape a certain death. Never could I expect, that on that very day Adrian was leisurely discussing the fire, while tucked away in a bookshop somewhere in Neukölln. In Adrian’s words Every time when I visit Curious Fox English books in Neukölln,…

Antonio Mainenti and Students – Ceci n’est pas une Photo

Antonio Mainenti and students from psychology faculty of the university of Pavia have used instagram and their mobile devices to work with sound. This is how: “This project wants to realize a multimedial file as a union of the recordings made by the students in moments of everyday life and intimacy.  The purpose is to discover again the sounds that surround us and the ability to pay attention to them, also through the use of social network as Instagram and particularly its function to create videos. After a first test…

Joana Moll – The Virtual Watchers

Joana Moll‘s work on surveillance systems, The Virtual Watchers, is a 21st century testimony of a practice that must be as old as humanity itself: spying on others and reporting them to the authorities. Internet has made it possible to put up camera’s and watch any place in the world from your sofa. Joana Moll discovered a crowd-funding funded system where every one was welcome to watch the US-Mexican border and report any attempt to illegal crossing to the authorities. Joana talks about her experiences as a watcher and as…

Richard Tynan – Bot in the Machine

Richard Tynan talks about the very little devices in your mobile phone, laptop or pad where all data is stored. The little device doesn’t care if this information is secret, sensitive or a shopping list you forgot about. And apparently the little device doesn’t even care about the fact that you deleted the files. Your information is accesible for third parties. And you might not even know about it. Radio On broadcasts this talk and the discussions that were held at the AND festival in London. The conference was curated by…
