edit kaldor - point blank
Sunday, 15. March 2009

Yesterday evening was definitely one of the inspiring one’s. I went to Point Blank in the Mousonturm with no idea what will happen, expect for some “clever use of software” in a performance. The performance was a girl talking, and showing photos:

“In Point Blank Edit Kaldor invites the 19-year-old Nada to present her large collection of photographs. For years she has been observing people, taking ’spy-photos’ of them, capturing their private moments. The core of Nada”s interest is to trace the various life-strategies that people follow. She wants to map out the options for herself. Driven by this curiosity, she becomes witness to a wide range of - at times excessive - human behaviour.
The performance is an occasion for Nada to structure and analyse her archive of possibilities. Together with the audience she contemplates the images, and looks for the implications and patterns that emerge. She aims to get a comprehensive overview and to reach a conclusion: the vision of a life worth pursuing.”
(from: description)

The combination of voyeurism (photos) and exhibitionism (her thoughts) was frightening and absorbing at the same time, Nada’s goal to find the set of rules for a lucky life is naive and lovely at the same time.
If you have the chance to see Point Blank, don’t miss it!

Rest in peace F12
Saturday, 14. March 2009

After 1,5 years of VJing, fair construction sites and writing diploma (!), my laptop keyboard urgently needed a cleanup. For remembering the positions of the keys I took photos.

I continued taking photos because I really enjoyed digging deeper in the basis of the number one man-machine interface - besides it really looks cool.

keyboard cleaning: during

Unfortunately I broke my F12 key during the operation… but as I’m not a Mac user, I won’t cry.

Urban Camouflage
Thursday, 5. March 2009

A very lovely project about camouflage and invisibility:

“Urban Camouflage deals with the question how to camouflage
oneself and one’s identity in the urban space. Our costumes are
inspired by the «ghillie suits», the military camouflage suit.”

my flickr updated
Sunday, 1. February 2009

I recently updated my Flickr with a lot of analogue taken photos from the last half year, including New York, Bremen, Salzburg, Graz, and Frankfurt.

I usually announced posts of this kind with a bunch of thumbnails. But unfortunately my chosen method (a wp plugin) doesn’t work anymore. Any ideas how to insert flickr photos in a blogpost easily? Can’t imagine that I still need a plugin to do that?!

Good morning night
Wednesday, 7. January 2009

My brother Christopher currently exhibits a series of his photographic work in the Künstlerhaus Salzburg. You are invited to check it out, it’s running until 25. of January in the Café Cult.

“Die gezeigten Fotoarbeiten von Christopher Steinweber verschränken subtil zwei Konzepte der Wirklichkeitsaneignung mittels des Mediums der Fotografie. Steinweber reduziert sowohl die Wahrnehmung von Zeit auf genau definierte Zeitfenster, indem er seine Aufnahmen im Dämmerungslicht des frühen Abends macht, als auch die Wahrnehmung von Raum auf diskrete Orte, wie urbane Zwischenräume, die man gerne als „beschämend unspektakulär“ bezeichnen würde.”

Image Fulgerator
Saturday, 28. June 2008

Julius von Bismarck did one of the most stunning projects I’ve seen for a long time - the Image Fulgerator. He describes as as follows:

“The Image Fulgurator is a device for physically manipulating photographs. It intervenes when a photo is being taken, without the photographer being able to detect anything. The manipulation is only visible on the photo afterwards.
In principle, the Fulgurator can be used anywhere where there is another camera nearby that is being used with a flash. It operates via a kind of reactive flash projection that enables an image to be projected on an object exactly at the moment when someone else is photographing it.”

See the Image Fulgerator, and very irritated people in action:

…are definitely worth a visit. Best spots to go so far:
MMK - ugly from the outside, but great collection inside!
Schirn Kunsthalle - nice, changing exhibitions. Currently the “John Bock Films” can be recommended.
