For this show I did new websites combined with the Mousepad Monuments attached symbolically to each one.
This website is called
I got the title for the piece from Paul Klee's Twittering Machine. In this piece, a software Bot which lives on the screen and is programmed to collect tweets with the word freedom, from the internet in real time. He plays cupid with those freedom tweets, shooting arrows to re-tweet, making sounds and clouds.
My Bot could be an Arab, he could be a Greek, he could be a Polynesian. He could be a revolutionary in Tahrir or Wall Street, or a teenage girl who complains that her parents wont allow her to change her hair color or to be a boy.. is a portrait of an internet machine with a mission for freedom. 


This one is While moving the curson Icon explosions happen and magnified pattern mosaics combined with piano notes.

This is a title taken from a publication with the same name by Friedrich Nietzsche a book which fictionalizes the real world. In this piece a centaur seeks consolation and vitality isolated by the chaos of reality. You can move him back and forth and make him grasp  his destiny into his hands.

This is a title take from a Shakespearean quote. This vibrant girl is following you all along the edges of the screen trying to fight solitude or maybe seduce you. At some point you can put her to sleep or guide her through the stairs for a wild color experience.


I placed some Monuments around London on these print series referencing to the websites. These images are also attached on Google Earth at these specific places.
