Recently, Japanese artist Makiko Ishikawa-Yamamoto invited Indigo and myself to participate in her project "BARTER". Starting with a bebble from Japan, an object got exchanged for another and created a chain of association representing the diversity of Makiko's network here in London. We received a "Chinese magic cube" and exchanged it for an Indian bird-shaped pencil (no 16)...

By arrival in Vienna, i was shocked about the 'progress' of privatisation, and the willingness of politicians to sell off Austrian landscape. Temporarily, due to a flood of protest emails, the idea is on hold, but I'd be surprised not to encounter the same in disguise again sometimes soon ... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13736646

This month, we presented our publication through the performative book launch piece Love, Piracy... in Vienna, and in London. In Vienna, the ambience of the project space (Salon für Kunst Buch), which is all about book as art form and book as a space of experiment anddialogue, contibuted to a subtle and relaxed experience (thanks, Bernhard!).
The Royal College of Arts exposed our idea to a more radical and questioning crowd of participants. Students were invited to a "lecture which is the work, not about the work". By accepting to work as censor, the student would get the otherwise impossible access to the content of Love,Piracy, a multi-facetted piece about censorship in Iran in relation to emerging technologies.
I really enjoy the way Love, Piracy invents itself by responding to different contexts, including previous ones in Hamburg and Hong Kong. More to come!

Our publication was not planned as a 10th anniversary celebration of the Ambient tale, but its release date coincides with it. We will be staging book launches every month, in different countries, until we run out of copies....

Last weekend, we set up the razor-wire harp in our neighbours' studio and invited Soho Ottakring festival-goers and friends around to play ... Vienna proofed rich of harpists-from-hell!
