CoF – Futuring Exercises – Block #1

It’s a bit more than a week since Time’s Up is back to Austria. It seems to be the very first moment after a long period of constant motion and some sort of tension allowing peace, restfulness and the chance to breathe.

Cabinet of Futures – a project within the context of Valletta 2018 Foundation’s cultural programme – kept us busy (apart from other activities such as an exhibition at Bildraum 07 “Medusa Bar Particles” –  the Kick-Off in Vienna for this years Ars Electronica Festival). Continue reading

Medusa Bar Particles – Finissage

In our first few hours back to Austria (after six weeks in Malta) we had the pleasure to speak about Turnton Docklands – more precise – about some Medusa Bar Particles, at Bildraum 07 – a gallery in Vienna which displays some particles from Turnton Docklands, as kick off for the Ars-Electronica Festival 2018.

Seeing the jelly-fish motif, done by Silke Müller, wallpapered was indeed a wonderful surprise! Continue reading

Times Of Malta – Again

This time it was Iggy Fenech – visiting Cabinet of Futures before it was open to public, spending some time in there, exploring and being curious.

Asking interesting questions to come up with an interesting review on it!

Cabinet of Futures: Times of Malta

Cabinet of Futures got its first news coverage from the Times of Malta

And there seems to be another feature to be published this coming Sunday! So good to know there is press interest.

Cabinet of Futures – OPEN

Through the kind help of KOPIN and StudioSolipsis we had the pleasure of a pleasant and cheerful “open doors” evening the day Cabinet of Futures (as part of Valletta 2018) was being open to general public the very first day last Friday, the 24th of August.

Heat waves & exhibitions summer ’18

== English version: please scroll down ==

Ein kurzer Einblick in den August ’18

Die österreichischen Hitzewellen bleiben uns weitgehend erspart / verwehrt, jedoch nur um in den kommenden Wochen die maltesische Hitze kennenzulernen!

Cabinet of Futures – ein Projekt der Europäischen Kulturhauptstadt Valletta 2018

New very best friends…

…. no matter what size, brand or shape – we are easy and open minded – only one requirement: as close as possible to us!

We declare undying love for fans of all sorts.

Another additional note here: 2nd floor, right beneath a flat roof, in a Maltese town, during the hottest period of the year, with _no_ walking distance to the ocean! It seems as if Time’s Up and European Cultural Capitals imply some sort of repeating venue issues….

Lets Get Going

Guess breaking the seal of the container (arriving a week ago here in Malta), could be defined as the official kick off of Cabinet of Futures as part of Valletta 2018

Some first days have passed. A container-load full of Cabinet of Futures, based on Turnton Docklands is unloaded, lifted into the second floor of the building the exhibition will take place and slowly taking shape. Continue reading
