Estimad@s amig@s

Os comunico la finalización de la 4ª etapa del WRC (World Routers Challenge)entre Buenos Aires y Fortaleza. Para nosotros, VskTugas I, resultó muy complicada, un error de calculo nos dejó a media regata en la posición 104 o alrededores desde la cual y no con poco esfuerzo conseguimos remontar hasta la 8ª en la línea de meta, con este resultado y los de los rivales, seguimos conservando la 1ª posición de la clasificación del Campeonato con 34 puntos de ventaja sobre el 2º. Os aseguro que en la próxima etapa Fortaleza Miami seguiremos dando guerra en la flota, y esperamos obtener un resultado mejor, si Eolo acompaña y la suerte no se muestra esquiva. Os envío como adjunto una imagen de la llegada.

...news from Scott-land..:-(

I am sad to report that there is now going to be a delay in the “Social Construction” show. The gallery, Spanganga, has lost its lease. However, the good news is that Abner and I are committed to the show and are well on our way to finding a new venue. We have excellent artists that are also committed to the show, including Komar and Melamid. We would still like the show to take place this spring/summer. However, the date is as yet uncertain and more likely to be moved farther into the future. As part of the move, we may expand the show into a much larger space, so please let me know the maximum dimensions of Communimage – I know you had a much bigger size in mind when we first made contact. Best wishes, scott

11th of march 2004 madrid, 16beaver, marseille BCD


11th of March 2004 Madrid

..we are all shoked, paralized..all activity gets transformed from one news-moment to the other and concentrated in front of the television in the bar around the corner..is it true? ..like this feelings from the 9/11 all over again.. we can’t concentrate anymore..what are we doing? for whom?..its like also our backgrounds and prospects exploded..and all presence lies in ruins..

..it seems from the first moment that this was another cruelness directed by Al Qaeda..although the PP..the still governing party does its “best” to make us think something else..“ETA did it, ETA did it…” no doubts about ETAs bloody tradition..but you really think they would be so stupid to kill 192 people and leave 1000s in pain, dolor and trauma just some days before the elections? why? to make sure that those really good friends of Bush junior and his really good friends will win the elections?..something’s more implausible??..

on the 12th we and around 700.000 more are demonstrating in the streets of Sevilla our total rejection for any act of terror, intolerance and fanatism! the Us-war in the iraq and the official actual Israelian “politcs” included!

..even when proofs are getting obvious to the blind and deaf the PP’s are going on to invent their electiondevil! its making everything even more painfull..listen to only one little dialog..life..today..between the interior- minister Acebes and a journalist:

Acebes: ETA did it! Press: Do you have any proof? Acebes: No, but i have no doubts!

this says all..and thanks to the whole universe the spanish are not as stupid as those people want them to be: on the 14th – election day – Mister Mustache and his loyal following may go a while to the second row..

the night before the elections flash mops organized maybe the first political manifestation organized by SMS’..a new form of protest against disinformation! > article in german..

via 16beaver an e-mail from Sally from Madrid reaches us..don’t know her, but although we’re in Sevilla we know what she’s talking about

..Teresa is writing a short – german – text..reflection on what just happend..and also in relation to geografiaffettiva and why we consider it an important project..>

..absurdität territorial bedingter Konflikte in einer immer mehr deterritorialisierten gegewart, spürbar in der delokalisierung der konflikte. die attentate des 11s und 11m als ausdruck des verzweifelten festhalten an dieser identifikation mit territorium/kultur/religion und erzwingen des andern zurück in definierte grenzen. was heisst für das individuum der verlust der verbunden-heit, identifikation mit der nation? wie definieren und nehmen wir unser lebensumfeld wahr, wie prägt uns diese wahrnehmung, wie manifestiert sich die auflösung der grenzen in unserem alltag und welche neue territorien und relationen zu diesen entstehen. Europa als studienfeld dieses soziokulturellen phaenomens und geoaff als werkzeug zur erfassung dieser erosion/progresion des “territoriums”. terror – territorium

. . .

we’re working on new papers for geografia affettiva.. on its archive site.. Teresa is continuing the model after we decided more or less how we want to bring geografia affettiva into the BCD-space – no forest, but a system of hanging transparent and printed layers of maps, which we can inform with individual threads from each of us…

Querid@s amig@s Finalizada la 6ª etapa de esta vuelta al mundo virtual (pero no por eso exenta de trabajo y esfuerzo) os envío como de costumbre una pequeña crónica de la misma. La etapa comenzaba en Miami y el primer punto de paso obligado (Way point, “WP”, en el argot) estaba situado en la isla Bermuda, el cual había que dejar por babor, para a continuación franquear el 2º Way point en Nueva York esta vez dejándolo por estribor y de allí ir a meta situada en Halifax (Canadá). Nuestra actuación en esta etapa ha sido más bien discreta ( no sé si por influencia del “triangulo de las Bermudas”) pero el caso es que en el paso del primer WP quedamos cortos de barlovento y solo conseguimos remontarlo en la posición 40ª y ciertamente descolgados de la cabeza de la flota, a partir de ahí nada que objetar al resto de nuestra regata, al 2º WP llegamos alrededor de la posición 30ª y entramos en meta al fin en la posición 28ª. Resultado discreto pero que nos permite mantener la 1ª posición en la clasificación general a 10 puntos del 2º clasificado. La siguiente etapa será entre Halifax y Oslo en fecha aún por determinar y procuraremos no acordarnos de Bermudas. Como siempre os mando en un adjunto la “foto” finish de la regata. Un abrazo Luis

Querid@s amig@s, llegados a Europa, en concreto a Oslo, después de cruzar el Atlántico norte desde Halifax ((Canada) impulsados por vientos fuertes y portantes a una velocidad media de 24,64 nudos, hemos conseguido un 6º puesto en esta 7ª etapa con nuestro barco VskTugas I, con lo cual aumentamos nuestra ventaja en la clasificación general hasta los 92 puntos con respecto al 2º clasificado. La derrota nos llevó primero a costear Terranova adentrándonos en el Atlántico para dejar las Hebridas por estribor, pasar entre el norte de Escocia y las Orcadas y de ahí librando la punta sur de la península Escandinava ir a cruzar la meta enfrente de Oslo.

La clasificación, en sus primeros puestos, queda como sigue: 1º VskTugas I…..............1.954 puntos 2º Akakino….................1.862 ” 3º VIRTUALROUTER Team…......1.772 ” 4º Ptitporsail….............1.666 ” 5º azra…....................1.630 ” Como de costumbre os envío como adjunto una imagen de la llegada.

you are invited to participate in 7th meet in a nice restaurant in belgrade, serbia http://www.meet-in-a-nice-restaurant.org meet in a nice restaurant is an informal meeting of different people (artists, businesspeople, designers, technicians etc) on 30th april and 1st may we will have dinners in nice belgrade restaurants..

..would like to go..its already the third invitation Nicola’s sending, but..

..L°°ks and omi are watching an incredible T.V. reportage..about a team which is working around Professor Manfred Buchroithner on “real-3D-images”.. for a three dimensional cartography..

..already the flat TV-images overwhelm them with there spacial effect!..talking of the “real3D” of geoggrafiaffettiva.net..thinking of Stefans image- finding..-doing..following the links..writing an e-mail to mister Hochroithner..showing respect and interest ..and receiving a tickled pink (at this point we want to express our deep appreciation for Leo! with you this booc would be dessert!) answer! mister Hochroithner shows the same!

first we want to understand the theoretical papers he sent us..and we should let Stefan know, maybe we could propose something together?!..and meet in Dresden..

..and stop by Stefan and Annette and the children in Berlin! and visit Evas Berlin..Stefan..

the other one..ach mensch Stefan Münker sends us a new text..after talking with omi on the phone again..about what is and could be..about the metaphor of networks and the reality of geografia-affetiva… (Barkhoff, Jürgen, Hartmut Böhme u. Jeanne Riou, Hgg.: Netzwerke. Ästhetiken und Techniken der Vernetzung 1800-1900-2000. Köln u. Weimar: Böhlau 2004.)

Federica asks if we could write a short text about how we dound cittadellarte structrure in Antwerp..for the Journal 8 she’s preparing..yes, well..sure..

Michelangelo Pistoletto & cittadellarte &how to curate that …


back to top

yes we decide to sell casqueiro, bregenz, widnau, convento


also for Märle and Curt casqueiro and how things are g®oing is a problem..in the sense that we can’t manage all..that somehow we all wish an new orientation.. a big change..restart c a l c and home.. itsn’t c a l c’s mothership anyway in sevilla already?..

all the things which start now with l a p a n a d e r i a and how they are evertime more linked with this town.. and this light..and this spaces..and online in all our cockings..

all are glad l°°ks expresses to keep his home in Navia anyway..in Asturias..its not about moving away or giving up but readjusting spaces and energies..

we’re back to the ideas we also played with Ju (..you know Ju..Mala > suuuuperbusy with new flat in Torino and curating Turning Pints Literature in cittadellarte..) at the end of BIG..in Torino..but energy..home is very different..not so far..Spain is spain..Torino is Torino..

should we try to sell casqueiro?.. yes, we decide that..

bye amores..see you in Bregenz..lets meet online to continue the talks about casqueiros future..

omi > 9th of April omi’s looking forward to Cartagena.. ..happy last days of the easterweek with Eva and her father and his wife

an e-mail from Gent arrives to omi > through a contact Nico made.. gracias amigo! >

Dear Omi,

We received the invitation to introduce the CALC project in Belgium and to organise a workshop in Belgium. As we told Nico, we’re interested to participate in this project because the project has a lot of overlapping areas with the On Line project. But we need more concrete information to decide and to organise the workshop. What is the concrete relation between the workshop and the finalisation of the project? What’ s your timeframe, because for us it is possible to organise a workshop after october the 15th. For the organisation we want the collaboration of the AIR insititute in Antwerp (artists residencies), in fact they are willing to cooperate but we need more practical information, period, how many persons will come over, etc.

Best regards, Lieve Foncke

Lieve is talking about geografia affettiva..with pleasure we would follow this invitation..we’re answering all her questions.. and wait..and wait..

then and when we hear/read from L°°ks..his totally absorbed by going from doctor to doctor.. making all kind of analyses to find out what really happens in his body..in his legs..there was even the suspicion for multiple sclerosis, but thanks God it isn’t..he just got the results from the neurologist!

this might bring some big changes again..its quite sure that L°°ks will go for a while to Switzerland in order to do therapies he can’t do here at the edge of europe..

..for sure we’ll go on together, but if he isn’t Casqueiros Scottie and caretaker anymore we face some new problems > who’ll look after the dogs if nobodies here? and who’ll look after the huge garden..little jungle..? we need to take some desicions..

..but it isn’t as bad as Christoph Draeger proposes in this mail which arrives today…what does he propose?

Teresa is contacting some gardeners..people who could cultivate Casqueiro while nobody’s here..we can’t afford that but we have to..if we want to have the infrasculpture looking sexy when someones coming to check out if (s)he wants to buy..

space is geting more and more open..although we know that big changes are ready to enter the existencial door we don’t know what all will come..and go..it depends so much on what these little butterflies do…and how open we are to perceive that..

a mail from zai > etoy..dear friend… .. isn’t it interesting and strange how similar questions, plans and projects lead to completely different outputs..? boo©s? weblogs? somehow this orange suite-strategists are going the opposite way..lets see if our ways meet again after we orbited the world..moving in the predefined frame of an aesthetic and ethic system proposing redefinitions of what we call “values”..

..this years fiesta was maybe the best one! yes, its stupid to compare parties, but this time we invited a puppet play group for children ..YHEPPA from Oviedo..you remember? we made their logo some years ago..and started to do their website too.. a lot of children came! much more than we thought…and mothers and fathers..who tell us that we should do that every year..we’ll try!

David and Teresa are going from house to house asking people for the oldest photographies they got from La Fiesta de San Antolin..long before the little park was born..then they’re scanning all these images and project them during the night of the party.. people enjoy that simple game with time and space a lot! some look like looking into a timemirror..

this important l°°ks-step will influence and change c a l c things a lot too.. together we start to find ideas and solutions for casqueiro..who lives here then? who looks after the dogs?

bienvenido lieve y jan, ola malex y amaReto, geanet, saharaui


Lieve Foncke and Jan Mast are arriving in Sevilla..they came all the way from Ghent to talk about geografia affettiva and a possible collaboration with what they are building up ..

..and more wind from the north > the superflexibles mail again:


Opening: Date: Friday 10th September Time: 18.00 – 24.00 Place: Blaagaardsgade 11.b, Copenhagen Activity: Andreas Rosforth plays Brazilian Baile Funk

Guaraná Power Bar is open every Friday and Saturday from 18.00 – 24.00. The aim of Guaraná Power Bar is to host a continuing discussion of the aspects of intellectual property rights. The activities in the bar will vary from music events and film screenings to presentations. Guaraná Power Bar is the place where you can hang out, discuss and party.

Events calender: http://superflex.net/guaranapower/calender

More information about Guaraná Power: http://www.guaranapower.org

Guaraná Power is now available for distribution in Denmark (and internationally by request) see more detailed info here: http://www.superflex.net/guaranapower/main.php?page=product

“GUARANÁ POWER is an energy softdrink produced by a guaraná farmers cooperative from Maués in the Brazilian Amazon, in collaboration with Superflex. The farmers have organised themselves in response to the activities of the multinational corporations XXXXX and XXXXXXX, a cartel whose monopoly like position on the purchase of the raw material has driven the price of guaraná berries down 80%, while the cost of their products to the consumer has risen.

GUARANÁ POWER employs global brands and their strategies as raw material for a counter-economic position while reclaiming the original use of the Maués guaraná plant as a powerful natural tonic, not just a symbol.

GUARANÁ POWER contains original Maués guaraná for energy and empowerment.”


..our few days with Lieve and Jan go very well! we are showing each other what we’re touching.. what not..and see very soon that we could.. together..YES..lets do a workshop in Richard Foncke Gallery in 2005.. lets think about how we can link kunstonline and geografia affettiva (geanet) ..kunst-online wants to become more visual and structural on levelTwo, thats also why this could make an interesting mutual sense..

..the bienal de flamenco is going on right now..so Jan and Lieve are going to see their first flamenco concert! ..Jan shoots the images above..he makes so many in the three days they are here..

we’re talking about the workshop and decide to focus on the notion of common memory..and on space > how we can translate within a one week workshop questions of memory which reflect on geanet and kunstonline to the gallery space in Ghent? or should we look for another space, one which is less “arty” and maybe makes it easier for some people to enter..Lieve wants to invite architects..sociologists..she is mentioning Pascal Gielen…remember? he was the man who wrote the main text for the catalogue according the show we curated in M HKA last year..would be great if Pascal wants to partizipate!

..he also tells about whats going on in Navia > the mayor shows him and Juice some plans about how “they” want to “improve” el Parque del Naranjo..> excactly what we didn’t want! – that they propose and predecide..they still didn’t understand that this open piece of village-land is the peoples play- and decision-ground! so l°°ks an Juice tel them, that they can realize nothing of that > of course we don’t want a concrete path running all along the stone-bench..neither those streetlamps!

..and the little river we don’t want to fence, but to realize what Juice proposed once.. ..well, first the people have to see these proposals..get the possibility to make own ones and then we counterpropose.. we still don’t have the contract signed which leaves these things clear.. and become very unsure – maybe peoples rights are better protected if we keep the park in c a l c s property and do a contract between the people and us?

...cittadellarte is writing..we didn’t know that there was a selection for the “methods-meeting”.. anyway – we’ll go.. to meet the U-residents04..in only a week!..

The chosen groups are: Bureau de Compétences et Désirs, France c a l c, Spain Katja Lindqvist, Sweden OUT/Isola Dell’Arte, Italy significans, Germany Stalker, Italy

As already mentioned in the announcement of the workshop, every participating group will also act as a counterpart for one presentation.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call us…Looking forward to having you all here,

-Mensaje original- Enviado el: sábado, 25 de septiembre de 2004 7:46 Asunto: Romería en Tapana

Crónica de una romería en Tapana, Vava´u, Reino de Tonga.

En el fondeo de Tapana, donde se encuentra el entrañable restaurante “La paella”, de unos españoles María y Eduardo, y cuyo menú es: gazpacho, tortilla de patatas, croquetas y paella, el 23 de septiembre de 2004 tuvo lugar una romería, la de la “virggen” de Tapana, con su manto rojo (un restillo de la tapicería) y sostenida por un báculo (bichero. Los romeros, vestidos a la usanza, y con la música de sus motores, se acercaban en los dingys y desembarcaron en la playa; allí una tríada de autoridades daba la bienvenida, portando luces (solares de jardín); a la derecha figuraba la primera dama romera con el traje de faralaes y su flor al pelo; en el centro, un personaje, ataviado con tricornio y capa de tuno, espíritu mixto de Franco y el Duque de Ahumada, lanzó un discurso y con una voz trémula y una mano tonta que subía y bajaba, decía: “Españoles, habéis recorrido muchos mares para participar en esta romería con la “virggen” de Tapana…....; pronto se yuxtapuso el espíritu de Ahumana, se fue calentando y empezó a querer atizar a los congregados. Después, los romeros, presididos por las autoridades, muy devotos todos, acompañaron a la “roja paloma” e hicieron el recorrido desde la playa, subiendo las escalerillas hasta el restaurante, con cánticos de sevillanas mal recordadas, algún “porón pon pero” y alternado con algún que otro bailecito aprendidos por algunas por la mañana ¡Viva la roja paloma! ¡Viva la virgen de Tapana!.

Una vez arriba, entre el baile y el mal cante brindamos con el último “Beronia” navegado desde España y degustamos las ricas viandas preparadas por las tripulaciones de los cuatro barcos españoles (Calcetines, Cormorán, Aldo y Sur) y uno italiano (Maistracc). ¡Toda una fiesta en el Pacífico, a la usanza de la lejana tierra patria!

Como veis, os tenemos en el corazón. Muchos besos, Marisa y Lois.

..shit..we forgot the digicam..aiii…we wanted to pass by Marseille to shoot the images Sylvie and Yanick couldn’t take..and take some measurements..aii..on our way back.. ..but no, before! ..they are also supposed to be part of the “methods-meeting”!.. remember? we’ll do an extension of their terrace their..project > Cap Canaveral.. soon in this BOOC©..

..Tal arrives today! welcome to citta’, how’sitgoin’? ..Tal came as a special guest for the the “Methods-Meeting”.. he tells us that he wants to move to de Negef soon so he can work better with the beduins..he’s doing a project there which he calls “unrecognized villages”..there are some infos on his site about it..

..the methods-weekend..hi everybody..except Sylvie and Yannick from the Bureau des Competences et Desirs..they couldn’t come..too much on the fire.. so we’ll pass by Marseille on our way back and see if we can take some images..and informations..

..Bryan and Laura are here too! they were invited as a kind of friendly disquieters from the audience side..rememeber them?..they were in BIG..and run the ARTISTHOUSE in Leeds now..

..these m-days are going quite well..are interesting, although we miss some kind of basic informations from some of the others.. if we talk about methods to realize projects we can’t leave out the method of “finding” and “spending” money..often we find that these kind of projects have a strange lack of reflecting on the financial side..that makes them contraversial..and boring on that side..

soon they (cittas art office..) will have some papers ready ..about this weekend..we’ll add them next time probably.. the image below shows Teresa and omi answering the questions from our “counterpart” the significans from Berlin..one of them asks if we not better would have realized an “internetcafé” instead of a park.. after telling them the NO-answer in 4 variations they keep on asking the same..Miss Pi is getting a bit angry..guess L.A. and Berlin are just too far from each other..

Hi Omi – c a l c,

Nat Muller was telling me that she met you in Italy, and that perhaps youv may be interested in attending DEAF. We are quite interested in your work(affective geography in particular)and may be able to wiggle a short present- ation in – but we are beyond the bulk of scheduling. There is some fine tuning happening, and some cancellations so if you are interested send me a short bio, contact info, and a project synopsis and I’ll see what we can manage.

cheers, Stephen

b a r r i g a l e g r i a, build here, maria y pau, utrera, almeria


11th OF OCT..the truck arrives..5 heavy pieces.. in about three hours the agorao03 sits..in front of a huge auditorium which is also used for public events.. mister Hapkemayer, director of the Museion who is coordinating all works which were bought for the new part of the university (the museum for contemporary art and the university are “one”..only a grand corridor seperates the two institutions..) welcomes us friendly..and the agora03.. >

..mister Hapkemayer asks us for “a very short text” to fix next to the agora03..very short:

a g o r a 0 3 is both: a free stage as well as a free arena. free and open to all students, professors and guests to be featured and expressed. and more: its your turn. c a l c and Michelangelo Pistoletto 2004

..we tell mister Hapkemayer that graffties on a03 are welcome!..a03 should be seen as a platform, as a vestibule-furniture, more than a form of art..more part than art..maybe we should think about a small contract?..when we only wanted to sit on a Franz West sofa en Castello di Rivoli .. we were told to “understand” that this is “art”..

12th OF OCT. bye belli..Teresa and omi are leaving today..lot of work is waiting in Seville..come to visit us! everybody! thanks for all your ears..feedbacks..definitions of geanet ..and the projects you showed us..hasta otro lugar y momento..amig@s..or who knows?.maybe in citta again..

..ciao bella..see you Ju.. by the way > Jus and c a l cs way seem to derive again..maybe it is the spacial distance, maybe something more subtile which didn’t let us find a fine flow in our communication..and tasks.. but things are not said yet..and open..there really wasn’t a quiet while the last two weeks to talk about it..but its in the air..lets talk..or write at least.. soon! ..we’ll let you know..

..Biella..Torino..Savonna..and all along the blue coast to Marseille..it starts to rain dogs..sky becomes darker and darker and the images we wanted to take..too..well.. nothing.. with Sylvie we agree that one of us – either from c a l c or l a p a n a d e r i a – will come within the next weeks..specially for that..a ver quien puede..

13th OF OCT > bienvenidos en sevilla! ai, que bien..!

uuu..sabes que? the newest news of all the year are here > Miss Pi and El Deivi are pregnant!

..Curt sends a mail..and an image of a new painting.. direction..his abstract-concrete world is geting more emotional again..

..the little BCD-book!.lets finish it as sssoon as posssbl.. Teresa and omi are showing a layout to eVa, Rubi and Topo..handling the publication like if it was a geanet of its own “history”..charlar con los panaderos siempre mejora lo que hay encima de la mesa..

..and > Crónica de El Sur por las islas de Vava’u, reino de Tonga . 3 de septiembre al de 17 de octubre de 2.004. ..the sailers write again..

posicion-24-10-04 53Kb

El Sur llegó a las Islas Marquesas el pasado 9 de abril. Después de casi siete meses de vagabundeo náutico por los Mares del Sur y sus islas, se disponen a abandonar las latitudes tropicales para dirigirse a Nueva Zelanda, ya al sur del Trópico de Capricornio. Al parecer lo hacen en Vava’u, que en línea recta está a unas 2.200 millas de Las Marquesas, y a 1.150 de Auckland, al norte de Nueva Zelanda. Adjunto mapita y, para más ilustración, unas notitas sobre Tonga: El Reino de Tonga, la última monarquía en Oceanía, es un pequeño país ubicado al este de Australia y al noreste de Nueva Zelanda, al sur del Océano Pacífico. El archipiélago decidió unificarse en una monarquía polinesia en 1845 y 55 años después se convirtió en un protectorado británico. En 1970 el reino obtuvo su independencia y desde entonces forman parte de la Mancomunidad Británica de Naciones, aunque a las Naciones Unidas no fue admitido sino hasta el año de 1999.Sus 169 islas (36 de ellas deshabitadas) suman 748 km² en los que viven unos 100.000 tonganos. La capital es Nuku’alofa, residencia habitual del rey Taufa’ahau Tupou IV. EL PIB per cápita se sitúa en $2.200 $ El rey elige a los jueces de la Suprema Corte, y no existen partidos políticos. De la infestación religiosa que sufren ya informa la crónica de los viajeros.

..El Sur has mail on board now…:

-Mensaje original- Enviado el: martes, 16 de noviembre de 2004 6:04 Asunto: Por la mar océana Desde Tonga a Minerva

21º 45´S – 176º 26W / 16.11.04

Ayer, 15 de noviembre, El Sur, de nuevo, se hizo a la mar océana; esta vez salió de Nuku´Alofa, la capital del Reino de Tonga, hacia un arrecife por allá perdido, de nombre Minerva, camino hacia Nueva Zelanda. Él iba con poco viento de aleta, contento y a unos cuatro nudillos, para recorrer, por una mar tranquila, doscientas cincuenta millas y poder llegar con luz de día al pequeño arrecife (merece la pena buscarla en una carta). Salió solito, porque a los dos barcos italianos aún les faltaba mucho para tener sus barcos a punto. Desde hace varios días la vida a bordo gira alrededor de la recepción de información meteorológica; a tres horas distintas del día suena un inconfundible cric, cric, cric, de la entrada de los weather fax de “situación actual”, “a treinta horas” y “a cuarenta y ocho”; al atardecer nos enganchamos a la red, recibimos varias previsiones meteorológicas y además despierta expectación por si nos trae algunos correos personales, ¿para ti? ¿para mí? Muchos besos, El Sur

..already some days after a next report from Polynesia..from Minerva Norte , its going towards New Zealand..will eVa and omi meet them in New Zealand end of winter..?

eVa’s back from Cap Canaveral! ..she brought hundreds of images, measurements..drawings.. and a lot to tell from her talks with Slyvie and Yannick.. on the long run the terrace-project is a whole-house- project…you’ll soonsee..we’ll present ideas and first plans end of feb.2005..

24th OF NOV > surprise surprise! Ismael and Lourdes from Bilbao are comming to Sevilla! ..they want to see the First International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville ..and us…who couldn’t be farer from this Biennial…no, we don’t like it.. the whole show seems to ignore everything what is “contemporary” here..no links, no weaves, no dialog.. just names and arts.. like a peace nobody is going to..

..the next day Marta calls…she is part of the renovation-team of La Iglesia del Salvador in Seville..and asks if we want to join a guided tour through the site..sure we want!..

..a new view to where we are living..passing.. stop over a lot > Plaza del Salvador..plaza de las cervecitas..Ismael misses skycrapers and twilights..he came for Blade Runner and found El Salvador..well, not too far..but anyway..he also likes these catholic pyramids..

Isma’s asking us if we are interested to come to Bilbo..soon..to talk about our work..c a l c y l a p a n a d e r i a ..in Espacio Abisal..where they (Soto’s also part..) are organizing shows and meetings and…YES, with pleasure we’d like to meet you up there!.. lets check out online.. dates and spaces..
