Sworn in

The President of the University of Leipzig is proud. Angelika Merkel is elected as cancelor of the Federal Republic of Germany. 30 years ago she studied at the University of Leipzig. The very same moment Mrs Merkel is sworn in at the Reichstag in Berlin, we are sworn in, too. Kind of. I am in a group of four that receive a documet: We are guest-professors now and might teach future german leaders. Maybe...

It took a while. A telephone call woke me up. My mother was on the line. More than 8 years after I showed it the first time, [small world] finaly reached Schwandorf, the town it is all about. Der Neue Tag –the local newspaper– has a big review with 5 photos! The article by Michael Zeißner is called Digital Ode To Schwandorf. I am a bit confuesed about the title. My mother is happy.

1stPlace in Brazil?

January 3, 2005
Today a small parcel from Brazil arrived. Inside, without any comment, I found a catalogue. It's the FILE - catalogue. Oh my god, what a cool one! From all the festivals I ever had my stuff shown, this one is the nicest. It is almost as nice as the one from Ars Electronica, or the catalogue of the ZKM Future Cinema exhibition. And the very best: three full pages on works of mine!

[7sons], [LoveStoryProject] and [small world]. I have a look at the pictures and the text that I wrote such a long time ago, and that has been printed over and over in festival catalogues. And then I notice a small detail. Underneath the title [7sons] it says in red letters: "1° Lugar | 1st Place*". Wow! Does that mean that [7sons] made the first prize? Am I rich and famous, now?

I can not find any other hint that [7sons] won a prize. Not in the catalogue, nor on the web. Hmm, but what does that "1° Lugar | 1st Place*" mean then?
