You can participate in my new piece of art. Add your input via Twitter or facebook or commentary section. Thank you for participating. The Result will be an open source net art piece, to be shown here and in an exhibition in Berlin later this year.
Hey there. I wanted to share with you some of the results from my roaming through Berlin. My photography is mostly focused on and around public transport (have an obsession for it, don’t know why). All pictures here where taken with a shitty smart phone, as part of the concept 😉 Also, I locate my pictures not very precisely, only by the nearest public transport access point. So don’t go looking in that particular street for this particular motive since it might be 100m+ away.

Nearing the end of DOGS. Or am I..? A partial victory at the very least!
“cats (DOGS X)” is the tenth part of a series of video-art shorts called DOGS specially dealing in relational miscommunication and the effect of technology on the human condition in general. The title DOGS refers to our animal instincts and emotions that, when suppressed, tend to erupt in an uncontrolled fashion. This again often results in violence, hatred and misanthropy / misogyny. The series tries to uncover what should remain hidden – those things we better not say or show…
“cats” deals with the symbolic dimension of the cat and the dog. These two animals have one of the highest density of association when it comes to gender and sexuality in particular, to the human in general. They can symbolize what we want, long and yearn for as well as the things we despise. Also they are those type of tamed animal that owes its very existence to its human counterpart, we have had a parallel evolution and it is yet open to discussion who tamed whom. Isn’t this also a very common question among couples?
Also: something with cats! Let us say this is my comment on the phenomenon ‘felis catus interrete’; such an ubiquitous neophyte.
I love shooting video and photos from a driving street car. This is not only about the protection (from the elements and angry subjects) but also about motion, speed, time and the notion of being inside on the outside.
Vinetastraße, Tankstelle, Berlin 20.02.2015
Over the years I have been doing a lot of work implying this fascination and I want to point out the short “inside/outside (DOGS VIII)” which directly deals with the above mentioned ideas…
Much of my “work in motion” and my Berlin roaming can also bee see on my Instagram Feed…
You gonna laugh so hard at me but I just recently discovered 4chan. And it is a paradise for a net artists like me… So I went ahead and did this as a declaration of love to the hyper post-privacy dungeon that is 4chan. I think I am going to spend more time there, since Horus (i.e. the 12 year old mostly white and wealthy male tyrant) lives there and it is he who rules the world (according to some whose name where erased form the public board but not the meme bank).

Living near Prenzlauer Berg here in Berlin – the chique part of that town – I can assure you it is true. Horus is rising and it is not a good thing, to my mind at least. But who cares, as long as he can be trapped so easily… He is after all just a child – a very powerful one though.

Seeing the situation in Ferguson from a safe distance, it looks like a war. But that is what our (German) media is transporting. Rage, anger, hate, violence, black people. The connection is all so simple. Of course This time the message is: “…right now coloured people are justified (in a sense) in being angry and violent.” But the underlying message remains: “…coloured people are being angry and violent.” Then again mass media has never been so good in identifying subtle differences or the complexity of the real world. It is a unifying medium….

hunger vs. food abundance
There are a lot of (semi-) professional porn actresses that stretch the limit of what can be done physically. Amazing Ty comes to mind, Dirty Garden Girl and Hot Kinky Jo as well as Belladonna & Audrey Hollander, furthermore Sheila Stretch and Taylor Rain… One of the most extreme case of body modification certainly is Roxy Raye. I believe she started out with 3 to 4 (now famous) clips she did on the floor of her kitchen…
dealing in pornography art it was a question of time I had to deal with her. As I still try to be SFW in my porn art (because it is not the obvious sexual aspect that interests me but the sexual meta layer) this is quiet a shy version of her. But it is a 2nd° glitch. Just cropped and sharpened, curves adjusted.
“roxy (her_face_008)”, glitch 2nd°, 800x1034x, 2014
Still I feel the need to add this: I do not judge neither the producers nor the consumers of this kind or any other kind of pornography. This is not my point. I am interested in how pornography in combination with digital media change our perspective on our body, mind and soul. The depiction of the human body is always a clear indicator on how we view our world (to my mind at least). “roxy” is part of the glitch porn art series “Her_Face”. Read more about this series here >>
Sometimes the lucky find still happens. As in this case, a porn glitched just in the right moment. I just pulled the contrasts a little, re-framed and sharpened slightly. I think this still qualifies as 2nd° glitch. This image, to me says a lot about the depiction of the female body / face in modern day Pornography. It is degrading and disturbing, deeply instinctive and bleak. In this it reflects the degrading and bleak vision most humans have for almost any other humans except maybe their friends and relatives.
