I made a quick trip to Berlin last week to catch the exhibition at Martin Gropius Bau before it closed, it´s too bad they couldn´t keep it open until Transmediale opens end of january. The exhibition is curated by Richard Castelli and includes several large scale installations by Ulf Langheinrich (former Granular Synthesis) and Jeffrey Shaw (Place and EVE) as well as some very beautiful small-scale work by dumbtype founder Shiro Takatani, to mention just a few of the works.
I found it interesting, especially after having just read Mark Hansen´s “New Philosophy for New Media” which uses Shaw´s work extensively to support his theory.
Regine at We make money not art has written two posts from the exhibition which I recommend:

an outdoor video installation I did in Berlin in october 2006.

The first weeks of this blog will probably be more of a backlog, covering related artists,projects, research which I have done so far.

I also want to share practical and technical information which will hopefully be of use to others as well.
