PP-P4\~# @ ARS Electronica 2010


I’m proud to announce that PP-P4#~\ made it into this years selection of the ARS Electronica Animation Festival. And, what I find cool too, is that when you search for “ARS electronica animation festival 2010” on Google, the third entry is a link to my website (the ARS trailer 2009), and the fifth is a link to David O’Reillys site, who should have been the winner of the festival in 2008 (with Please Say Something), but did just get an honorary mention. What an underestimation of his work!

[6 days in Berlin] Posts without pictures…


…suck, basicallly. But I didn’t take the time to take pictures and put them up, and I don’t really know what to take pictures of at the moment. I’m quite busy with gathering the load of impressions at the moment… From a nice party at berghain/panoramabar (even with passing by hundrets of people waiting to get in, because of being on the guestlist—my boss was djing there), going out to a hip gay bar in Kreuzberg (oh la la), to buying bikes in Moabit, shopping at the Alexanderplatz, watching Soccer and having a barbecue at a balcony in Neukölln, spending lunchtime and having lunch in Berlin Mitte, watching even more Soccer in the Kastanienallee/Schönhauser Allee at Prenzlauer Berg, buying an Emission Sticker for my car in Pankow, to having a great barbecue-party on the roof-terasse of our atelier/bureau with lots of people celebrating the successful finish of the previous projects, code-named Grid and Arabia, and meeting lots of nice people again and even more nice people for the first time, too. And thats the balance of 6 days in Berlin. Hope my english doesn’t suck too much, anyway. It’s great here, I like it.
