Hi everybody!

Back from a short vacation, intrigued by interesting posts...
I find very interesting the point Giselle's writing about the popularization
of small, almost-body-like devices for contemporary communications...which
allow us to be constantly on the other side(of fantasy, daydreaming,
entertainment, play..) while living in an everyday world with other people,
groups and communities, who sometimes virtually live in decades already
ancient and forgotten.
And I absolutely agree with Patrick's comments.

To put the debate further on the level of artistic projects I'd like to
inform you with the work of Slovenian artist, 'Intimate Global
Communicator' - Igor Stromajer (www.intima.org), whom some of you know quite
He researches tactical emotional states and traumatic low-tech strategies.
Here are links to his later works and projects.
