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 Vivian 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 at B93 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, ISBN:9783000537400.

Komputerstrukturen 1a and 3a

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. None 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.

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:

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 ANIMA by 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.

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 Tribute 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.
