In the morning, I visited FOAM: Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam to see the exhibition about
Helmut Newton. I also
watched (about two thirds) of the documentary Helmut by June. I was also impressed by the works
Atlantis by Carlijn Jacobs.
At 11:32, I bought the book Helmut Newton: Private Property written by
Helmut Newton in English published by Schirmer's Visual Library in 1989,
ISBN:9783888143915, for € 7.95.
I had lunch at Si-Chuan restuarant with a friend that I had not see for 35
years. Roughly between two and four, I spend at Scheltema, but I did not buy anything.
Around half four, I arrived at gallery andriesse & eyck for the exhibition Dutch Concert with works by Peter Struycken
and his good friend Carel Blotkamp, who had some works based on works by Peter Struycken.
Besides the new works, there were also a number works from the SHFT serie on
display. I talked with several people and took pictures of all the works.
I also met with Ton, Meindert and his
partner. Afterwards we had dinner at Spanjer en van Twist.
Carte Blanche – Carina Schüring
This evening, I went to attend Carte Blanche – Carina Schüring with new works by Carina. There were also some old works that I saw in Almelo earlier this year. She had brought her tea with her and I made some green
tea, which I enjoyed very much. She had a very interesting drawing. I also
bought the book Stadschatten: Jule und ein Herz voll Licht written by
Sabine Kohlert with illustrations by Carina for € 12.90. It is
written in German and published by Plettenberg : TUSSNAT Pictures in 2016,
Recently, someone send me a picture of Komputerstrukturen 1a by Peter
Struycken, which allowed me to analyse it. From this I found that compared
with the design, the work has the following differences:
Long ago, I already established that the
reproductions in P. Struycken komputerstrukturen and all following publications, contained
following six differences. Non of the differences matches with the differences
between the design and the work, again strongly suggesting that the
reproduction is based on the design instead of the actual work.
- Row 6, column 15: changed black to white.
- Row 23, column 3: changed black to white.
- Row 24, column 20: changed white to black.
On July 11, I drew a similar conclusiong with
respect to Komputerstrukturen 3a. On August 3,
we encountered a picture of this work. From this I found that the work does
not contain additional anomalies compared to the three that I reported
earlier. In this picture the work is oriented in the same way as in the
exhibitions komputerstrukturen and P. Struycken, while in most publications it is rotated clock-wise by
90°, which was the orientation that a based earlier analyses on. Taking
into account this new orientation, the work has the following three anomalies:
The reproduction in
P. Struycken komputerstrukturen seems to be based on the design
AB15701, because it does not have the difference found between the design and
the work. It has a total of eleven differences with the work. These are:
- Either row 47, column 4 or row 48, column 4 should have been black.
- Row 22, column 50 should have been white, like in the design AB15701.
- Quite likely Row 44, column 50 should have been white. On the design one
can distinguis the Dutch word "fout" (with means: "error") on the side
with line to the square. It appears this was overlooked when the work was
made based on the drawing.
- Row 5, column 23: changed white to black.
- Row 6, column 2: changed black to white.
- Row 8, column 29: changed white to black.
- Row 12, column 10: changed black to white.
- Row 19, column 20: changed white to black.
- Row 20, column 20: changed black to white.
- Row 22, column 50: changed black to white.
- Row 33, column 8: changed white to black.
- Row 44, column 44: changed white to black.
- Row 44, column 48: changed black to white.
- Row 46, column 48: changed white to black.
This year the theme of Gogbot is Post
Singularity. The interaction with technology seems to be a little absent
this year. There is a zombie area, but I am not sure what is the relationship
with the theme, only that the super intelligence that may arise during the
singularity may view us humans as zombies. Yesterday, I already saw
Nick Verstand in an
almost completely dark Oude Kerk (Old Church) in Enschede, but I was not really
impressed by it. Today, I first had a look at the exhibition at Concordia. There I saw a work by Nastia Cistakova, who won the Blink Youngblood contest, but I am not very
impressed by her work. I also saw some pictures by Luuk van den Berg. Upstairs, I looked at some of the video exposition
Hotel Europa. I watched there and here 2 by Ink Agop. Downstair, I also looked at the
exhibition of Christie van der
Haak. Next I went to Tetem, where I saw
three works by
Bjorn Gort that I found interesting.
Willem Kempers had three works with
crossing moving lines (made by LED's). I also watched the various short
videos by Karina Zavidova. Also watched the short video 7 Days of Artificial Intelligence by Pierre Roquet with fragments of science fiction films telling how a
superintelligence 'Deepmind' takes over the world in seven days.
At 11:42, I bought the book Documenta Kassel 12, 16/06 - 23/09, 2007:
Katalog | Catalogue written by Roger M. Buergel and Ruth Noack in German
and English published by Taschen in 2007,
from charity shop Het Goed for
In the afternoon, I visited TETEM art space.
I first watched the Special Treats Street Special exhibition with works by J&B. I stepped inside Alone with my
thoughts. Next I watched the video 7 Days of Artificial Intelligence again. It was the last day of the
to Remko Scha exhibition. I watched the documentary Huge Harry about Institute of
Artificial Art Amsterdam.
Between 18:10 and 18:14, I picked seven chestnuts
from the tree before the Chinese restaurant at the Haaksbergerstraat. These
were all small and some very small chestnuts. I did see some shells for larger
chestnuts, so I guess that the chestnuts belonging to those have been picked
by others. The weather has been quite warm for the
time of the year, about four degrees Celsius above average, with last week even
two days with temperatures above 30° Celsius. In away if feels strange to
find nuts, because if still feels like summer.
Teco VA120 terminal
I took my Teco VA120 Terminal to
TkkrLab. When I arrived, I realized I had
forgotten the keyboard. While I was doing something else, someone connected
it to a USB to serial cable and managed to get somethings to display on it.
I should bring it another time with the keyboard.
At 12:16, I bought the book American Nerd: The Story
of My People written by Benjamin Nugent, in English and published by
Simon and Schuster in 2008, ISBN:9780743288019, from charity shop Het Goed
for € 3.50.
On my way to Code &
Cookies held at TkkrLab, I collected twelve large chestnuts from a tree along Hengelosestraat.
