Much has been written about eighteenth-century automata, and of the history, culture and language of interaction between man and machine in the West. The Japanese vision of the 21st century is one of "co-existence with robots". Japan's love of robots lies in the history of the Karakuri Ningyo. The word 'Karakuri' means a mechanical device to tease, trick, or take a person by surprise. It implies hidden magic, or an element of mystery. The http://www.karakuri.info website is an ef...

where is the bar?

"where is the bar?", a memory project One of my obsessions as an artist is the glue of life: memory. Through "where is the bar?" I will try to reconstruct my first journey to Lisbon in 1990. The skimpy entries in my 1990 diary are the point of departure. My memories of that journey are getting muddled because I have been in Lisbon for a while - the "tourist environment" has turned into familiar terrain. Can I still distinguish between what I remember and what I think I remember? Can I ...
