sbs german radio melbourne

after my internship at sbs i got the offer for my own sequence - "internet for beginners". i developed a blog for it, as well.
We all know about the internet… But do we know how it works, logistically? And what about all those technical terms and names, eg “server”, “broadband”, “internet protocol” and “hacker”? In our new series, “Internet for Beginners”, SBS Radio’s German Language team looks behind the scenes, and explains the World Wide Web in simple, easy terms. In this first part of the series, Lisa Lang and Pamela Rauleder discuss the very basics…

interview with sascha lobo and holm friebe

work the way you live
about self-determined working, constructive criticism and a lucky punch

the promoter and the businessmen , personnel manager and permanent employee. they worked for mtv, jungle world, taz, titanic and blond. in times of job reductions, the crash of the new economy and inflexible working hours, the first hesitance and consideration has arisen. then his first own projects: central intelligence agency,

due to the internet and a will for freedom, sascha lobo and holm friebe have provoked a storm. in their book “wir nennen es arbeit – die digitale boheme oder intelligentes leben jenseits der festanstellung” (translation: we call it work – digital bohemia or intelligence beyond permanent employment) they break away from the “generation internship” and move towards self-determined working.

i met them in january 2007 in cologne for an interview, where we were talking about the pleasure to work the way you live. a conversation about the chances of the internet, artistic licence and about a bohemia that has learned walking.

the article is published at the student magazin "orange 8"

Max Msp/ Jiiter

Projekt Ascii Art
with Yunchul Kim

is a graphical development environment for music and multimedia San Francisco-based software company Cycling'74. It has been used for over fifteen years by composers, performers, software designers, researchers and artists interested in creating interactive software.

The Max program itself is highly modular, with most routines existing in the form of shared libraries. An API allows third-party development of new routines (called "external objects").
As a result, Max has a large userbase of programmers not affiliated with Cycling'74 who enhance the software with commercial and non-commercial
extensions to the program.
Because of its
extensible design and graphical interface (which in a novel way represents the program structure and the GUI as presented to the user simultaneously), Max is widely regarded as the lingua franca for developing interactive music performance software.

between the shelves

free project

black/white documentation about the work in a supermarket

the cap market in obertürkheim/stuttgart is located a little hidden. there are 26 employees, 10,000 edeka articles on 1,000m2, including a bakery and a butcher. it seems just like any other supermarket.

whoever is a frequent customer however, recognizes these little odd things between the shelves – hardly noticeable, but existing. most of them a little too delicate to speak them out loud: why does the young woman take so long to accept the deposit bottles? can’t she type faster? and what is so interesting about the bags of white bread that the elderly gentleman in the bright-yellow coat places in the shelf so slowly and affectionately? with a soft rattle a can of peaches falls out of the hand of a young man - if he only had placed them from the pallet in the shelf with both of his hands...

cap comes from handicap. it is a concept of the deaconry in baden-wuerttemberg. people with slight handicaps are working here, hardly noticeable, but nevertheless, these people would never have a chance at the "normal" labour market. what kind of handicaps is it that we are talking about? for example, slight motor dysfunctions in the hand - this doesn't reduce someone to a second class person.

however, it is almost impossible for a disabled person in germany to find a normal job. either they are shoved off to sheltered workshops or they do one unskilled job after another.

the people working in one of the 39 german cap markets know about their only chance and they are proud and happy to work there.

working with them however, is not always easy, knows the head of the store in obertürkheim. he experienced a little success story himself with the organisation cap. after an apprenticeship and working a while he ended up on the street, there were only very few job offerings. in the course of an initiative of the labour agency he got his first job in a cap market, as also 1-euro-workers are employed there. he was working there, he liked it there, he qualified further and now, four years later, he is the head of his own franchise store.

home delivery

“it is not difficult to work with my people”, he says in the first interview. “but it is also not easy – it’s jus different”. according to him, they needed, just as any other employee, instruction, intuition and an eye kept on them. “many of them are used to get out of any unpleasant situation with the excuse ‘i’m disabled’. most of them have such low self-confidence that they don’t dare to do anything; that also applies to the 1-euro-workers here.”

they want to establish self-confidence, and their success proves them right. meanwhile, the net of cap stores stretches over whole germany. 39 stores, most of them opened on the outskirts and with a free home delivery service, an offer which becomes more and more popular among the elder population.

exposure technique:

the photos were shot analogously with an olympus om 1 and a 50mm lens and an external exposure meter. the negatives were developed with the push method, underexposed with two aperture stops. the photos were finished digitally only slightly (bright/dark and contrast) and printed.

GPS Installation

projectweek at merz akademie.
work with gps signals.

Our intention was to transport GPS signals from virtual space into real space. The installation is based on
routes that we had covered by car

before. The routes were recorded with a laptop and a GPS system. In our university’s hallway we installed the routes with colourful clothing lines, hammers and lots and lots of nails.

On the floor of the hallway we placed a coordinate system, so the visitor of the installation feels like walking through a huge coordinate system. Thus, the borders between real and virtual space come blurred and you can pass the routes on your own, just in a smaller scale.

thanks to my group for the nice week!
