Press conference XL

Done. The one hour press conference in the Deep Space on the promulgation of the 2016 STARTS Prize winners offered by the European Commission has gone well. The extras this time: my own wall and floor designs, photo galleries and videos simultaneously, and then in between even a live video conference to Berlin. (Photos: Robert Bauernhansl)

Light Storm

A very nice piece of media art can bee watched at the Ars Electronica Center: “Lightstorm” by art students Katharina Gruber, Laurin Döpfner and Gregor Woschitz.
