The Fühlometer really feels you 14.08.2010

Visitors often argued whether or not the Fühlometer really reads peoples’ faces. Some said it it must be a randomized process that changes the smiley’s face, others didn’t understand at all. Here’s the proof: All the instruments are up there in the lighthouse. The Fühlometer really feels you. Don’t worry about the security of your private data.

Opening 07.08.2010

Last Friday night saw the official opening of PROVINZ. Some 350 guests celebrated in the halls of Lindau’s train station. THANK YOU to everyone who helped making this a very special night! Special THANK YOU to our dear sponsors Restaurant Valentin, Brauerei Meckatzer, Weingut Haug and Weingut Deufel.

False Alarm 07.08.2010

Just before the opening night of PROVINZ, innocent LOVE LOVE, Julien Berthier’s ever-sinking sailboat caused a major turmoil. Someone who wasn’t informed about the true character of LOVE LOVE called the firefighters. Along with lots of fire engines came the police with cars and boats. Finally all of them gathered around the boat to find that no one was hurt, the boat was constantly sinking (LOVE LOVE-style) and everything was ok.

The Lindau Smiley – Legend and Truth 02.08.2010

There was a lot of speculation about how the Smiley would look like…. This rendering for example was… well not exactly accurate:

This is how the Smiley actually looks:

Special thanks goes to our supporter Uli Kaiser who captured the special moment in vibrant colors:

Arrival in Lindau 29.07.2010

After a long ride in a luxury VW-Van (Thanks to our sponsor Aweco!), Lilli Kuschel joins the beer picnic. Richard Wilhelmer and Julius von Bismarck relax after a hard day of steel work.

The transporter from Berlin arrives late in the evening. Boris Mrkonjic und Rasso Hilber finish their ten-hour trip. Rauls large box (the infinite large-ness of this box was explained in a prior post) fits through the door by quite exactly one inch.

Boxes chests and mysteries 22.07.2010

When Raul opened the doors to the studio we found ourselves staring at a giant wooden box. 600 kilograms and more than 2 metres high. God knows how the thing fit into the truck. You might want to know the content. We don’t know. Raul knows. Ask him, he won’t tell you.

Compared to the giant box, this little chamber of wind feels quite harmless. The Blasomat, invented by Rasso and Mikko is being hauled into the transporter by the artists and our logistics expert Arne.

In the end Raul pulls out another box – a real beauty. And again, a box with a hidden function…

Our posters have arrived 15.07.2010

Julius von Bismarck is blinded by so much beauty. Here are the new posters. You can find them all over Lindau. We produced a series of three motifs, silk screen print on reflective paper. How do you like them?

The entrance to our temporary art space. We’re still building and preparing things here, but the rooms will be opened on August 6.
