almeria >NO<.. anotherone for the drawing drawer.. >> they write that they found our proposal (see some boocpages ago..) to violent, not respecting the existing enough.. well..done.. was a good experience anyway.. we did not not respect the existing, but respected more than that.. we insist!
..pasodoble ..findeaño Luichi pincha.. e Isabel ‘tákí! eVa_omi_pocobaile_poco charla..mucha noche.. costa-rica-cama-sutra-lallallallallaaa..
..why did we talk about copyleft? because of geanet? .. and you invented this sign Isabel.. well, guess someone else has said and drawn it, but look, we did a logo.. un silogo no un nologo, un dialogo no un mono..logo..
ai..ke bueno, Paloma y Edi vienen? felizes vacaciones! como? we shall bring the NAVE to a dealable end.. start? ufffff, buena idea.. es una sikaflexchapuza! .. Edi mentions a friend in Madrid who’d like to buy a NAVE..maybe..first of all we have to ask Marco Koeppel if we can get all drawings and rights in order to work free on that problem..
..the IPline swings again..Jaume and Gemma..from barcelona.. sad-mas.. deadclauses.. or in strike, redpeace?
..eVa proposes to bake it.. the NAVE sleepinghouse.. con l a p a n a d e r i a en la p i s c i n a.. on the problems of the ‘skin’, the climate, the structure, its volumes.. por fin!
2 0 0 5.. shall be econimical effective and successfull! the year of the posponed breakfasts.. breakslows.. ol€!
..and..(p)art from belgium janswers in..
ow, http://www.kunstonline.info now directly takes you inside a revised and upgraded version of the easy/levelone interface as standard
..soon we – l a p a n a d e r i a and c a l c – are going to have our first breakfast..slow..our new platform for dealing our common tasks.. everytime more.. Teresa and omi are happy to life and work in a larger group now.. with loves who are architects, with more minds to open..ideas..desicions.. what else art should be if not starting from the other?
Juice and omi, es decir el arquitecto Don Jesus Manrique y el artista Don Tomás Shaiidapava visit Don Manuel Bedia mayor of Navia.. our newyearwishes, from all of us from L.A. >
..sounds good.. ‘will be all done’, ‘of course’, ‘no problem’, ‘no te preocupes’.. ..’nono, nada’ – Juice will follow the process ..if the mayors words become true they’ll start in spring to update L.A.! but mayers are normally too diplomatic to say anything, they just bubble into the potential of vote-air..so we’ll be very carefull..
..mercí Nat Muller.. longlightheshadow >
5th of JAN ..~ aguri Edi, ciao Palomita.. lets find ways which cross more, mays which be more.. we’ll develop the NAVE_sleepinghous plans ‘til a good end and come back to you then ..pero ante’ no’ vemo’nsevilla’,no?!..
oops!..muttenz goes puttens! > l°°ks’s organizing a costume party, men are women and women are men..>
l°°ks’ living back home again, after so many years beeing THE casqueiro keeper and the you for everyone (even navias always-moody policeman asked omi the other day “donde esta el suizo?”) he had to leave us..and all.. to look after his problem with his knees, his body.. soon intensive physio-therapies in Basel will start and its totally open how everything will go.. how much energy this will del°°ksuate.. if we stay a team ~ try to give frames and features, and form a teleteam or if we have an art-break.. but never a heart break_art..= friendship.
..the dogs?! Alfonso our nearest neighbour, the orthodox anarchist, says ‘i’ll take care of them!, you don’t worry, i take care, you know i like your dogs’ ‘and the dogs like you Alfonso!’..omi says..and has to leave in few days..
Casqueiro will be alone for the first time then.. millhouses don’t like to be alone..they are built for working, for turning around a task.. and when you stop the wheel they become bitter..decide to be flora, play roots and suck water even from the dust..and start to stink..and to invite every weird insect-beeing you can imagine!.. but Alfonso who’ll come everyday..great, gracias amigón! ..and Juice and Alvaro and Amador got keys too and wheel up from time to time..
Tom Dale, the britspear pastes again.. seems like he’s doing rubberism now..>
bye eVa … unos dias y omito baja tambien.. nos espera un monton de año, verdad?.. first of all the breakslow 01! animo! nos vemos en pocos dias!
before omi goes he’s working on a buisness card.. for our other neighbourfriend ‘Potcholo’ Sergio, the carpenter who made all the furniture in the NAVE.. this card is a gift for him.. together with Juice from LAstudios and some other friends from the village we’ll print and pay it.. Potcholo likes this one the most.. “el carpintero imposible”..>
Potcholo is living with a very serious health problem, you know… he has to let carpeting for some months..or even years.. so this card is supposed to be a kind of medicine from his closest neighbours..
9th of JAN.. we all feel a full year arriving around and in us.. in here in l a p i s c i n a.. where shall we start?
Teresa and omi are first finishing a job for UNIDEE…> MANYDEE.. actually it was supposed.. and proposed.. to be much more interactive.. so everybody could update his own pages.. but for now its only a list-thing.. hope it serves anyway..
Marisa! only some days and you’ll go back to New Zealand!.. eVa and omi would love to visit you there in spring, early summer.. we’ll see, its expensive to fly to the other side of the world..

Hi, The magazine is a-n magazine – a leading magazine in the UK for professional visual artists. The web link is www.a-n.co.uk . I am developing some material for a-n on ‘Future Space’ – what kind of conditions will artists need to work in and to present work in in the future? My first task is to compile short profiles of forward thinking international organisations which are artist led, or support artists – these profiles c a l c has been mentioned as a potential model project, so this is an initial request to find out a bit more about you. If you have material which describes, in brief, the history of c a l c, its mission, philosophy and activities that would be great. Many thanks Paul

talking to Mr. Hapkemayer, the director of Bolzanos modern art museum and one of the curators we clarify that agora03 is GRAFFITY-FREE, that it should be free of graffities, but free for graffity; we get promised that all graffities will be just left ón the object.

and.. scott snibes again! cui in San Francisco? :
Dear c a l cies & Johannes Gees, I know it has been some time since we last corresponded. As I mentioned, the gallery we were going to exhibit “Social Construction” in closed. However, my co-curator, Abner Nolan, found a new venue which is much larger and better. The institution is called “Southern Exposure” and is one of the best respected and well-attended art institutions in the city. We have confirmed our show which will open on May 13, 2005 and close June 18. I would like to ask if you would still be willing to show your work? We have a slightly better budget, so we can offer a US$200 honorarium for your team. We should also be able to cover the printing costs. Finally, since the space is so large, I think we will be able to exhibit the work at the original size you specified – approximately 10m x 10m. Can you also send me a brief, one paragraph description of the work, and how you would like the work attributed – the precise language describing the creators of the work. After you agree, I will pass you off to the Gallery Manager, Kristen Evangelista, who will serve as your main contact. She’ll send you an official invitation letter and more details about the show. I’ve attached an image of the gallery and gallery plan. The wall we think is best is the 33’2” wall that is a vertical wall in the center of the plan. In the photograph, it’s the wall to the left, which is a bit obscured in the photo. With my best wishes, www.snibbe.com
isi asks if we want.. together with lapanaderia..for the new space the found in Bilbao..we’d like to, but so far no time around..later..lets see..

A-1.. layers, like a project sandwich.. which we can sell and which should relax our fridge worries.. and which first of all will inspire some questions about art.. si..you’ll see..

scot asks for a text for communimage in san francisco.. omi writes a kind of hippiecard.. ironical ballkicking arnoldism > mr. govonor!.. goes like that:
if you’re going to San Francisco..communimage in Arnolds County!
www.communimage.net is a collaborative art project since 1999 and was developed and pre-presented in the context of the Swiss expo2002. Since then the project attempts to entertain a visual global “polylogue” and grows without any censorship or hierarchic control.
The inputs from about two thousend people from all around made that it can be seen and played today as a “city of image”. c-imagecity manifests itself as the free sparkling source code of a free-minded-love-choise-speach-information-society. Welcome to California, the cradle of this Dream!
Is it a coincidence that the proportianal relations between ‘neighbourhood-productions’ and ‘pornographic-productions’ are about the same in California and in communimage (~97:03) ? communimage is californian!
These rights couldn’t be expressed and this dream couldn’t be exposed in some countries on this globe. To be guest in realspace California with communimage means a special spatial honour to its six starting architects. We want to use this opportunity to send greetings to the Governor of the State of California Mr. Anrnold Schwarzenegger, express our respect and share with him the knowledge and the identity of a history which became comon by defending these rights.
Grüssgott Terminator! From shady Europe to sunny California, and our most honest wishes for the ray of light which lets you also see that these rights don’t end where death rows and software copyrights start, but in the free world with the violation of them with the Trailer of a Thriller.
Mr. Governor, be a real heroe again, remember your roots and do a revolution! First in yourself, then within your state and then in the whole Republican Party of the United States of America! communimage!
We don’t know if we’re also speaking in the name of the two thousend continuing architects, we hope, but actually don’t care.. communimage either, and shows that.
Thanx to all c-citizens of California and of communimage for initiating and helping us bringing this piece over, viva la communimagination! may it bring peace to the world!

12..no 13..14..15 years ago we said: we prefer working for money – having a task, a contract and a deal instead of playing the art roulette (“working for myself” serving the collectors taste) .. we said ‘quality of work depends on quality of relation’. Its time to space a booK about it..a real woodbook with theorie >< images and chapters which smell.

lets roll to Cadiz again.. they say they still carneVli around there! and meet Captain Carlitos.. with sista Eva, Steffi, the doubter and omi the uncle..says: ‘where there is a doubt there is a funk! and Carlitos even knows the place where words are needless.. a real funkfloor!

working on the clues for Ghent.. in la casa de Rubi.. every workshop-day Hill has its clue..and for everyday we’re preparing a kind of storyboard..sounds like that >
..we decide to work mainly with language.. “knowing” that there will be mainly language-people we want to try that.. so after the basic and the spatial geanet goes word..
mama Pi’s talking everyday more with her beautiful moonround babybelly..we all are getting more and more pregnant..and exited! fathers and mothers and uncles and aunts getting ready to bay the be..
1st OF APRIL GRAN POLLO KICK OFF DAY ..they meet and dive deep into the material Santi brings.. in the meantime we talked a lot.. we’ll do it together.. we prepared an extra compi..mama Pi’s machine from casqueiro for that, big quark.. ..we’re deciding the basic visual structure for the book, that we want to associate kind of chicken-icons to each chapter and to visualize all chapters in a center-map..like a cartography of these 10 years the book talks about..
4th OF APRIL muere el papa.. still against the war in Irak and still against reasoning against aids….y el mundo popes out! the death of the head of the most hirarchic, rigid and biggest enterprise of the world, the catholic church, makes that world becomes an image for a while.. an image of images of popehope..adios K.W.
..el pollo..all starting structuring..taking desisions together..inventing a system with post its to have a common overview..
mister Nacho MU calls..you know, after we were buying a quarter page in his magazine for the casa + o – project he proposes to dedicate the architure page to the project.. sure, fine… go ahead..
omi and eva start to understand that they are not the wide’n deep re_lation they thought and wished they are..like all went so fast.. until emotional speeds are like flying out of the orbit..and seperate. everything, but the friendship.. and our common projects.

Bart writes .. Bart de Bear.. from MuHKA .. he got an idea > the idea that c a l c curates again.. Bart tells us that him and Rutger Wolfsen who’s the director of the Vleeshal in Middelburg-Holland are planning a kind of ‘collection-exchange’.. and that the piece they bought from Michelangelo and c a l c (uffizi porte) should be the center piece of what is supposed to be in Middelburg… curate a show in which we are the focus? hmmm, sounds impossible.. like celebrating ourselfs..but anyway: great, omi and Topo will leave to Ghent in some days anyway and omi will pass by Antwerp and Middelburg to have a look..and a talk..
Topo and omi – one day – one clue.. in some days they are leaving.. reading a lot about memory and talking about it (using memory and generating new informations) .. ‘remembering is a creative act’ is the most important we understand. these are the 5 clues / stoyboards they take.. one day, one clue >
23rf OF APRIL going Ghent – this text went before..Jan and Lieve used it to invite people.. >

how can we remember something if this something is absent? the answer Sokrates gave in a platonic dialog is maybe a cultural sourcecode of what we know about memory > (wo)man, so Sokrates, owns as a gift from Mnemosyne, the mother of all muses, a board of wax, in which memories can imprint themselves like from a signet ring. whatever leaves an impression can be remembered until this impression is fading and oblivion initiates.
looking at geografia affettiva with this platonic spatial view and playing conceptual with its telematic feasibilities provokes some interesting questions and possibilities > do we have – finally – collective wax boards? > is our memory getting “better” because we can outsource it into an artificial kind of screen-brain which doesn’t fade out? or should on the contrary a system like that also have a facility to forget? and first of all > what shall that be: a collective memory?
if memory (Mnemosyne) is the mother of all muses and an individual memory only can be formed via social interaction what happens if this interaction can be mapped and contexts be seen as > a net cartography of these interactions? do our relations change and does our identity? what happens to what we call past and presence? and does the system help to project the future?
during our workshop-week in the RFG we’d like to share these questions with you and leave the result as a kind of spatial memory for the public.
since geografiaffettiva.net was developed in all its questions by bringing them on public tables also our GRF experience will > be translated onto its blog-like website and soon, when we’ll be able+ to play with the prototype, in-formed better. we hope until we meet!

..of course the prototype wasn’t done until then.. too much other taks, money jobs which are everytime more interesting.. and more time gorging.. but we’ll have it on___ until end of 05 for sure! we just can’t wait any longer..
..we decided within ca_pa (c a l c and lapanadaria) to see and to inform the whole GRF-space as a huge white black-board.. everyday our circle of chairs move..from one clue to the other..and with chalks, post its and everything people like to add we in_form and deepen what the clue touches, provoces and generates through our plays and talks..
..meanwhile in Sevilla it rains surprises > the casa + o – project goes even better than we were hoping… they already sold 4 or 5 flats…the project provoces what we intended: a discussion about the misery of actual ‘social’ housing.. of course this is just a start and so many details can be improved, but it is a serious proposal to get prices and wishes more adapted to people and their needs.. the biggest problem of doing realy big steps towards a change are the realty prices.. and the sharks in the sweetwater.
Malex arrives from Zürich on day/clue 4 >
CLUE 4 – thursday > THIS IS A COLLECTIVE MEMORY
a term without any mean in computer science done by or characteristic of individuals acting together; “a joint identity”; “the collective mind”; “the corporate good”
definitions memory: > an electronic memory device; “a memory and the CPU form the central part of a computer to which peripherals are attached” > the power of retaining and recalling past experience; “he had a good memory when he was younger”
how is geanet, seen as a tool for generating a visual collective memory, defined as such, if its structure is a hybrid memory between the electronic and the human memory?
in a conceptual (philosophical) way: 1 about what is “collective” nowadays (reflecting also on the GRF-space itself as an art-space (...) touching the problems of responsability, control, authorship, copyleft. 2 from the individual to condividual (attitude and backgrounds) 3 the concept of “multitud” (crowd, mass) 4 history and collective memory, differences and similarities
relations beetwen these concepts and geanet 1 community – a base concept in geanet 2 how is a community in geanet defined? 3 how can you visualize the others information and therefor generate your “personal collective memory”? 4 data bank and “probability bank” – how can geanet work as a “generator of contacts, ideas and exchanges? how can it increase the probabilty that we find each other over our problems, questions, ideas? (reflecting at this point also on our previous days regarding archive and memory – semantic and associative memory)
technical issues: 1 about the open source “philosophy” and its relation with geanet (basic distinctions in working effects between final determined closed ond basic predetermined open codes) 2 an “open software” for geanet as a principle for common memory 3 communimage – reflecting on an example of collective memory on-line (how “now-collective” created a visual collective by the programm background) 4 how to store data in geanet (touching the basic question of the week and the theme of CLUE 5: how can a data-bank forget without loosing information for its activity?).
..its the first time that we meet in such a workshopframe – first time for Topo and omi, but also first time with Malex.. and it goes well. well, it could go much better, it could be better organized, but the GRF-people have other probl€ms..fighting with moneyproblems to keep their own kunst-online-project alive..
..en fin – we brought back home what we were hoping to bring: an answer how to deal with geanets memory..there will be a kind of oblivion..data will fade out, but not completly fade away.. and can be re_membered if certain interests touch them again.. soon (..) u’ll understand by playing with this domain..
thanks..Jan and Lieve.. Tom from Brussels, Maria..Nico, Peter..all of u..who came and helped us to undestand better.. and to Simon Morris..who did a kind of contra_dictionary speach_performance the last clue-day.. showing us a project he did..re-writing Freud..
Omi, Topo and Malex having a last belgian beerevening with their hosts Lincy and Franky from the bed and breakfast place their were living these days.. they are profesors…Franky for history, Lincy for Latin..Latin? wow, we might would have learned something if we would have had such an atractive teacher..’yes!’ says Franky ‘among aaaall latin teachers in Belgium Lincy is a sex bomb!’
see u in Sevilla amig@s..bye.. first leaves Malex.. back to Zurich..bye Mali, lets do things like that more often! when will you stop working for this software company there and live with us? then Topo..back to Mama Pi and the LOLAbelly.. omi continues his trip > to Antwerp and Middelburg.. checking out this invition to curate..the people/spaces..
..while Topo and omi are waiting for the trains they see this gothic mix.. a media skyline.. last memory before their ways are ramifying.. ‘adios babba top! ‘ciao uncle funkle’ ta’ pronto en el horno andaluz’..
..and while trains roll in three directions the phone rings in sevilla.. la Escuela tecnica superior de arquitectura de Sevilla calls… they have seen what we did for casa + o -.. the website .. and they liked it so much that they want us to do the redesign of theirs.. bravo, guay..venga, nos vemos pronto pa’ hablar del tema..
...omi and Bart meet in the MuHKA.. talking about what and how they imagined to have c a l c active…okay, first omi will meet Mister Rutger and his Vleeshal, then he’ll be back to see the collection..the things from which c a l c is invited to choose..and to present..
..Middelburg ..>Zeeland..Holland.. a city like a kind of dutch Mandala.. but it wasn’t the core which gave this form, it was war.. ‘hola Rutger, thanks for picking me up’ seeing the Vleeshal for the first time > a gothic butcher-market which then became the townhall..was destroyed and renovated by the fashists and became then later the center for contemporary art >
(..the image above was done later..on the 23rd of June when omi came back.and the setting up started already..)
having lunch with Rutger (director), Angela (curator) and Kees (chief technician) in Restaurant Vriendshap.. now its clear: the piece which will fill the Vleeshal is supposed to be Uffizi Porte, which was bought by the MuHKA and which we developed with Michelangelo about 2,5 years ago.. and “around” we shall select works from MuHKAs collection.. we still cant imagine how this ‘self celebration’ could work if we’ll be the curators, but lets have first an overview on MuHKAs collection.. collect as much as possible information and discuss this problem then back in sevilla..
..omi meets Peter Verwimp in Antwerp…remember Peter? he was the cooking DJ in UNIDEE 2004 ..
..Peter’s busy.. painting a flat of a friend..Charlottes flat.. omi wants to be co_busy.. different kind of busy..so they paint together.. two nights, while miss Charlotte is somewhere in the states.. they do a good job and have fun wasting energy.. everthing’s white now.. exept one little corner on the ceiling which they leave unpainted.. like a memory_cube, a flip_space as a present for Charlotte..and the first tiny ‘common project’ Peter and omi did..good start!
2nd OF MAY going through the material of MuHKAs collection with Angela.. all they can see they see, all they can read they read.. but they can’t touch anything, they can’t see the real things, just weak virtual shadows which are definitely NOT a base for deciding.. we got a problem!
the only way to deal with that..the only one we can imagine now..is to make this problem a project.. to somehow work on this ‘archive’ which isn’t an archive as it should be..could be.. lets see it closer back in Sevilla..all together..
Peter and omi meet again.. byebye_night.. when they walk through Antwerps dark night streets they all of the sudden find themselfs in a stange surreal situation.. actually nortereal..anyway, there is this young and rich man sitting in his fat luxury car..talking to an old man who got an old rusty bike with him.. when P and o walk by, the old man, who looks like a Karl Moses Marx, asks them: ‘whats the most important thing in life’ ‘hmmm, LOVE they say almost simultaneous..’and whats that?’ says the old man..’thats the energy which makes things become alive..’ that was the keyword for the old man.. he starts and doesn’t end until P and o leave to give a speach about his universal view.. which is quite drunk..quite weird.. but also quite beautiful at this spot, at this late hour.. the young man in the car looks like his pupil.. ..good night folks.. yes, the only revolution which is left is the loveolutiuon..’bye Peter..see u soon..when i’ll be back in Antwerp and Middelburg round the 20st of June…’
END OF APRIL ..while in the streets of Antwerp these three strange man say goodbyes, mothership Sevilla got a paper ready..ca_pa proposes geografia affettiva again > Manresa.. a respond to the invitation which reached us some months ago..
4th OF MAY happy new year Mama Pi and Baby LoLa!! Pi_rthday 2day! dOOble_u_pi_piday..happy new year.. lolaño!
..but..of course omi won’t leave ant_werp be4 he didn’t meet Tom de Luxe.. remember? he was the comic_angel who helped/solved us so much when we were fighting with all these problems while setting up the MuHKA_ cittadellartearte_ show.. Tom le Grande.. ‘maybe we can colaborate again Tom?’ .. ‘would be great, let me know what i can do..’ ..’skype ya soon brotha comix!’
on his flight back omi stops in Madrid for some hours and meets ~ finally ~ Maria Sande, the communication boss of solidaridad internacional.. they became online_friends while making these maga_si_nes together..and just had to have an offlinexperience.. are they offlinefriends too? coño pues si joder :-) !..
13th OF MAY > Eva leaves to the Fidjis to meet Marisa la mama capitana..and Lois.. 3 weeks..or 4.. on the other side of the worryworld.. take good care.. enjoy.. forget about everything and bring a lot of storries with you!
..the rest of ca_pa’s working on the archi_uni web now… space-net.. spatial webbing.. arch_i_texture..we talk/play a lot about how to translate the building itself into a web..a visual information in more senses than icon_kitsch.. a navegation metaphor abstracted and pointing back to the real thing about and in which all contents are turning.. > very first sketch we did.. the groundfloors and associated fields of content ~ we’re just analyzing this whole chaos the got now..and playing on first layers..>
..for Middelburg we propose a game which intents to generate a ludic archive >
kind of “be a curator for a day play” ..
we imagine how this game can output some serious results on which the development of their archive will be easier..because the access gets streched.. in order to play the game we first of all have to develop a system..a grid in which each work has its data-bed.. do we have time to do that? only if the MuHKA and the Vleeshal agree 100% on co_risking.. first proposal we sent was that one..“
19th OF MAY Mama Pi and Rubi are doing a first screen_layout..and show it today to the people from the archi_versity..they like the idea.. that we bridge the space with itself..we can go on..deadline end of the year.. big job..also a nive challenge..to try to bring space_sense into this task..but bad paid (in itself we invest again..) and what we find wwwexisting just can be better..no structure on which we can build on, nothing, a hyperdesert..we start from zero and some green and liquid imagination.. guess in two booc-chapters u can click that..
..at night > Santi and omi working on the fat chicken again > el gran pollo de la alameda.. its growing crowing, egg by egg, ping by pong..1000s of images need to be seen and selected..most texts still are between ink and send.. just a basic structure done..in which they slowly let decided contents drop in.. all people..people who got their pages in that document..who come to see what they are doing feel inspired to finally finish and bring their material.. texts which are missing.. footnotes, a-pollo seems to really blast of now.. they are confident… k i k e r i k i !
omi proposed this image above..as the cover for the pollobook…skin emotioned.. feeling what u feel, a postideological visualisation..a ver que dice la multibanda.. la banda ancha de la plaza larga..
..restructuring UFFIZI PORTE for Middelburg..it doesn’t fit the way we proportioned it for Antwerp.. but thats fine.. easy, its an elastic stucture, its meaning doesn’t lay in a final constructed drawing (‘sculpture’), but in a contexted thought which proposes to start from naked (‘framework’).. Tom helps us again..and sends after some chats this drawing.. bien, we’ll do it like that >
..+ we are looking so much forward to see these two structures together..constructing something else than the sum of its parts.. the rising gothic and the on_growing cristal..but now time is running.. we still don’t have a standing concept ready.. second proposal is this one..
www.casamasmenos.net works so well! and as better the news become (los panaderos venden pan caliente) as more critical we see this project.. how can we improve the basic idea of the relation between the right to live under a roof, the flexibility of space and price and – on the long run – to imagine architecture as an open_source_field of shared structures.. which can respond to this right and this wish? ..anyway..there are people in the line and we face the basic problem..which shows apparently everything senseless > the speculation/value of realties. where..how can we interfere on that level?
..while we wait for Rutgers and his teams feedback we compile a CD for Themes and Hudson again… miss Maria Fusco made a contact a while ago..saying that ‘they’ are working on a book about artistic_public_..well, she asked for material about the park for L.A. ..a fat orange CD leaves to London today..with nearly all images and text we got..so Maria can choose and compose her own little bookpark..the villagepeople will be happy seeing this book announced in the vitrine near the park..
..Vleeshal.. we are almost happy that Rutger can’t risk to collaborate on input_02..and understand..share his doubts ..NOW that we only miss a little month until the opening.. okay, treasure-drawer, swallow that, we have to work on input_03..which is a simple and straight proposal to show UFFIZI PORTE in the big gothic hall.. and let someone else select works for their other spaces..
..right after another immediate call from Rutger ~ we’ll work on input_03 ~ we make the invitation card >
an invite Juan to come to Middelburg to talk about his cittadellarte-experience.. as the head of the artquarter.. ‘u can come, si?’ ..’great..c u in M Juan!’..
..its June already.. > 3rd OF JUNE..a stardark and springhot sevillan night.. los Topis en casa.. Eva already on her way back from the Fidjis..somewhere over the clouds between the continents ..omi and Ruben on this concert..lokal groups en la cartuja.. beautiful night..strange night.. omi can’t hear anything anymore.. and walks home.. slow steps deep breath.. and Ruben gets knocked from his bike some hourse later when he’s on his way.. by a megacapullo hijo de tontos! with a plaster on his leg and a bond on his hand.. life is loud and violent.. as silent and open.. towards surprises which come from deepspace.. bonna notte 4 2day..
what a year.. all so open and full at the same time.. like all is starting again.. replay.. rebirth.. revival.. rescrible.. respons.. real
same night.. same town.. sevilla.. en la calle piemienta #9.. la barriga mama pi, la casita de la niña y papa top wake up..feelingknowing that 9 months a over.. con pelos y señales!..
its Lolas and Mama Pi’s and Topos birthday today!
how it came that there was less time than ever to upbooc these screens? like there was no second around the whole year.. just liquid moments floating one into each other not leaving not even a thought of sitting down and typing..
sorry to all the people who came here and never found anything fresh.
two women changed lives, the live of this booc and the c a l c life radically: LOLA and PAM.. their being and love made time so liquid and the usual almost unrecognizable. LOLA swashed into Miss Pi’s and Topos live (their baby!), PAM into omis.. like a dream stepping from future and memories into a shared presence, where all was restarted.
LOLA was real-born the others were like reborn.. hold to refeel, rethink and redefine some frames and ways things went so far. and a lot changed.. again, but never so much in such a flowgo.
..and there was a mysterious auto-delete-happening which made the booc-folder disappear..and with it all our notes, mails, …so, whenever you are reading > (inboxbooc) know that the linked text or image is gone into the blind black of the hardisknirvana.
so how to go on with the booc, now that everything feels new and c a l c looks more like a bunch of babies than an old experienced whale? we decided to write this fattest and fullest of all chapter-times in a kind of telegram-way.. to not forget our own art history and to bring an idea to an end, or a new start.
we’ll take spime (space and time as one liquid..) and we’ll see what presence, the crossing of moments and qualities will suggest.. and will let u know.. until then we just will go on to update c a l c a x y with new little icons and links towards the new projects we are doing bringing on their way..
okay..lets rewind until where we stoped the flow and tell you six telegramonth for now:
5th of JUNE 2005

exciting stress.. hola Rutger Director of Middelburgs contemp.art.house..and all the team!
omi meets Regina Reggie, a very nice woman from Middelburg who shows him corners and things he never would have found alone. > (inboxbooc)
when omi gets to the hotel late at night after working on the setting up of the structure he finds 6 salesmen in the lobby watching a hardcore pornmovie on the big LCDscreen..like they were watching the new years concert.. ”ooo young man, come one join us and see these lovely film with us!..” ..”no thanks, I have to sleep now”..
up in his room he switches on the TV and watches a documentary about an indian taxi driver who decided to cross all India from south to north driving only backwards.. the man explains that this way he can drive all through the past and become clear about all his memory.. switching the channel afterwards he watches another documentary about people who call themselves asexuals.. after listening for 15 minutes he believes that there are really people who never think and never enjoy sex.. are they driving backwards to?
24th OF JUNE…late at night in the directors office..
omi has to select images for the back-projection..its already 3 in the morning and he would prefer to go to sleep, but..he opens the folder from all images he and others took in the last cittadellarte-years..and types ENTER to make the program show all images random wise..lets have a first look..
the first image which opens changes his life! > PAM POPS UP! PAM?!? where are you, what are you doing, when do we meet?’ he thinks..and can’t go on working.. so much he feels touched by the memory and curiosity this image provokes! ‘PAM..PAM..how could I not have felt this whish to see you again before?’.. before implodes in a huge now. .. aiaiaiai.. .. remember? (clickback to 2003 and see the massive attack concert entry..) they met about 2 years ago in cittadellarte.. there were lightsparkles jumping between them whenever their ways crossed.. PAM was working in the economic office then.. but actually she was the most interesting artist this year > the one with the fewest fears to come out..
omi can’t stop looking at the pop-up-pam-image ‘what an amount and clear colours.. this memory..’ the same late night he can chat with Juan, his friend who works in cittadellarte..and who’s right now in Venice setting up the same structure in the biennial context…and asks him for PAMs number..he got it, he got, he got it!
Juan will arrive in Middelburg in some days..for the talk >
omi writes to PAM. ..can’t remember that an intuition ever has been so strong..or is it just a wishwave? he’s sure that they have to meet..‘to get married’ he thinks.. and loughs and falls asleep like the happy idiot who’s dream started with open eyes.
