A while ago, I scanned the videoprints I've done during live av performances around 2008-2009. I made them with a printer that connects directtly to a composite video input, which was plugged into the output of my video mixer. Since doing live video is more or less my way of painting (not entirely true: I'm currently making the weirdest paintings, but they're not quite ready to be published, yet), these are probably the closest things to static paintings I've made. At least around that time. There are 74 prints, some of which have been collaborations with Eva Becker.

Of course, with 74 prints, not all of them can be of the same quality, still I like most of them a lot.

Here's a few of my favourites in no particular order:





I might upload more of them as soon as I have built a proper project page for them.

Video Hackspace

meta-creation_date: 10/2/2013 07:16:15 Fabrizio D'Amico from Video Hackspace came over. We talked about doing a visual circuit bending workshop soon. It was very pleasant.

I borrowed a projector and he filmed some of my pictures with his telephone. Then he uploaded them to Youtube. Here they are:

Also, I had a very nice/strange night. More things soon.

Videophone new step!

Yesterday, I built in the internal screen.
Pretty machine.
I'm working on this like crazy again. Also, a few days ago, I finished general bending on a Zoom 506 II bass pedal. Needs a bit more polishing and some solution for a nice controllable internal feedback.
But already: O.M.F.G!!!

videophone screen

A lot more soon to come.

Fuck Yeah!

Videophone growing

I finally managed to upload some stuff I recorded with the Videophone (which now also has it's final name, yay). I'm still building on it like crazy, so there's lots more to come.

Here's also a picture of its last stage (it already looks different again, but I am way slower with documenting than I am with building.


I am currently building the screen to the left inside the housing.

Here's two recordings I've made. More to come, soon.

die gute Situation machen

So begab es sich denn, dass ich mich mal wieder in meiner letzten Wahlheimat Offenbach einfand, folgend dem Ruf des sehr umtriebigen Herrn Jos Diegel, der hier und anderswo seine Kunst in unzähligen Formen unters Volk wirft.

Eine neuerliche Kollaboration war längst angesagt und lange angedacht und endlich nun also wird das, was sich in unseren Köpfen zusammenschwurbelte, seinen Weg in die Außenwelt finden. Und das geht dick rein.

Sonntag, den 1. Jilu 2012:


Was gibt es schon besseres zu tun, wenn sich alles ins Innere verlegt, als eine Situation zum rausgucken. Zu einer wirklich gemeinsamen ernst gemeinten Sache treffen sich zwei zu einer Übung, nicht im Freien, aber im Vorstellbaren. Diese Sache ändert sich dann stündlich. Die Fortsetzung der Immobilie mit anderen Mitteln, das mobile Haus wandert mit der Sonne oder mit uns. Eine asymmetrische multimediale Präsenz wegen, zu, auf, für und gegen die Rhetorik der Stadt, die wir nicht sind.

So ab 5-6 Uhr bis ein paar Stunden später, wir haben ja Zeit.

In der Nähe des Unicampus Bockenheim in Frankfurt (mehr lässt sich zur Ortsbestimmung noch nicht sagen. kommt einfach dahin, ihr findet das dann schon). Könnt auch schon früher kommen, Da gibts nämlich das Sommerfest vom Kulturcampus Frankfurt und mithin einiges zu sehen und tun und so.

Gut gut.


I'm back in my last chosen Hometown Offenbach to finally pursue a long due cooperation with the very busy Mister Jos Diegel.

Sunday 1. Jylu 2012:


surprisingly accurate Google translation:

What is there to do better when it's all moved into the interior, as a situation to watch out. For a really common thing seriously meant to take two of an exercise, not outside, but the unimaginable. This matter will then change every hour. The continuation of the property by other means, the mobile home moves with the sun or with us. An asymmetric multi-media presence due to, on, for and against the rhetoric of the city that we are not.

Its gonna start around 5-6 and will go on for a few hours. Near the Unversity Campus Bockenheim in Frankfurt. Just go there, You'll find it eventually.

You can also come earlier for the summerfest of Kulturcampus Frankfurt, as there are going to be plenty of other nice things to see and do and stuff.

Good Good.

Video Glitch Thing

There's something awesome growing and it's high time I posted it here:

So yeah... these are the first tests with the new video glitch thing I'm building. No better name yet, but oooh it's gonna look sexy!

It's based on Gijs Gieskes brilliant GVP1 Video effects processor

As usually, I'm going way over the top with the circuit bending. And then there will also be the whole VGA part of it which I haven't even messed with, yet.


soon more.
