On a boat up the Thames

An idea for a new project:
based on the book "Three man on a boat" rent a boat, gather a group of artists and designers and follow the same route. Promoting tertulias.

"A tertulia is a social gathering with literary or artistic overtones, especially in Iberia or Latin America. The word is originally Spanish, and has only moderate currency in English, in describing Latin cultural contexts.It is rather similar to a salon, but a typical tertulia in recent centuries has been a regularly scheduled event in a public place such as a bar, although some tertulias are held in more private spaces, such as someone's living room. Participants may share their recent creations (poetry, short stories, other writings, even artwork or songs). Usually (but not always) the participants in a regularly scheduled tertulia are, in some respects, likeminded, whether by having similar politics, similar literary tastes, etc." wiki

Lorem Ipsum: secret sex code

Bruce Nauman

Bruce Nauman finds inspiration in the activities, speech, and materials of everyday life. Working in the diverse mediums of sculpture, video, film, printmaking, performance, and installation, Nauman concentrates less on the development of a characteristic style and more on the way in which a process or activity can transform or become a work of art.


Paul Pfeiffer

Paul Pfeiffer's groundbreaking work in video, sculpture, and photography uses recent computer technologies to dissect the role that mass media plays in shaping consciousness. Pfeiffer's intimate and idealized video works are often presented on small LCD screens and loop infinitely—meditations on faith, desire, and a contemporary culture obsessed with celebrity.


Paul Pfeiffer was born in Honolulu in 1966, but currently lives and works in New York City. He has a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, an MFA from Hunter College in New York and participated at the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program.

"Pfeiffer's works address how the image of the human being has been transformed by new digital technologies, which can be used both to store limitless amounts of visual information and to manipulate pre-existing images."
– Hilarie M. Sheets

Pfeiffer's work often employs digital editing to address the question of the real, and of historical visibility or invisibility within the image. Referring to his video work as "video sculptures," Pfeiffer merges mediums and approaches, assimilating found footage and images from pop culture to create something decidedly twenty-first century. Much of Pfeiffer's work explores the relations between race, religion, commerce, art and philosophy.

Harun Farocki: Interface

Schnittstelle/Interface (1995)

A key work by Harun Farocki in which he sheds light on and unveils his own working methods in his own singular way. In them, he reflects his documentary work and the fact that he favours working with already-existing images over creating further-new images. He deals with the creation of moving images while accenting the principles according to which they emerge and are arranged in the editing room. He thus investigates the act of re-reading them, giving them back their lost distance and displaying additional hidden facets.

Greenham Common fence

Greenham Common women's protest 1982, decorating the fence
As part of the 'Embrace the Base' protest by 30,000 women in December 1982, participants covered the USAF base perimeter fence with a variety of things that held significance for them: clothes and other personal items, family photographs, poems and expressions of opinion, in order to highlight the contrast between the death-dealing weaponry inside and the life-enhancement represented outside.
