'Turning Games into a New Kind of Art’: that was the headline in The New York Times on January 21, of an article about a games exhibition – and provides all the more proof that to an ever increasing degree digital games are part of popular culture. They not only reflect elements of daily life, but also influence it.

makes visible the unseen movements of graffiti writers in the creation of a tag. Motion tracking, computer vision technology and a custom C++ application, record and analyzes a graffiti writer’s pen movement over time. These gestures are processed and used to produce algorithmically generated digital projections which appear at night in motion on the surfaces of buildings in New York City. Relationships are created between analogue and digital graffiti styles, forming a link between traditional graffiti, experimental street art and new media. Graffiti is re-presented in the language of information analysis, offering a system for greater understanding of a highly coded form of creative expression.

Swoon first took her art to the street five years ago while she was a fine-arts student at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She was compelled to take her work outside after suffering what she calls "the quiet, boring preciousness" of the gallery world."I wanted to jump out of my skin," she said. But the streets were free and open to a wider range of expression. "Because it's kind of an outlaw thing, you don't have to go through official channels," she explained. "It's trying to create a visual commons out of the derelict walls of the city."
"That’s a woodblock print (above). See I was just printing last night (shows the black ink staining around and under her nails) I do a full size piece of plywood, 4 by 8. I carve it either with an exacto to get the fine details or with a Dremmel. The Dremmel because my hand and my whole wrist is getting really tired from all the carving. I’ve been carving for years. Between the paper, the wood and the linoleum." (Links to linoleum and woodcut printing techniques, and Dremel Tools)
Could you talk a bit about the printing process. I'm imagining you walking around on top of the plywood to make the impression. What sort of ink? Water or oil based.
"I use a huge roller, and etching ink (it's oil based but I just clean it up with olive oil) and spread a sheet of paper on top then step on it a hundred times like mashing grapes or doing the twist. Depending on the paper type wetting it first can be useful for better saturation, contrary to what you would think with oil based ink."
You do all this in your apartment. How do you deal with this chaos in your living space?
"My brother is visiting and he looked into my studio today and said wow, you must be a very strong person mentally, and I said why, and he said because if I had to deal with that mess you've got in there (meaning a four foot stack of prints and then some) I would just break down and lose my mind. So that's what my house

This article approaches the Berlin Wall in two stages: first it sets out the nature and development of the Wall up to its fall in 1989; then it examines the way in which parts of the Wall were preserved to be consumed by the tourist industry, and the distorted view of the Wall it offers. "

Today only a few painted sections of the Eastern side of the former Berlin Wall still exist at Potsdamer Platz, East Side Gallery at Mühlenstrasse and in the Wall Park at Bernauer Strasse.
Painting on remaining sections of the Wall has become very difficult. The Wall at East Side Gallery has been listing and painting is prohibited. The existing paintings shall not painted over, however sometimes artists try to paint on East Side Gallery without permisson.
At Bernauer Strasse the City of Berlin takes care that the former Wall remains grey.
The only sections which are painted regularly are located on the Wall Park at Bernauer Strasse.
The Berlin Wall at Muehlenstrasse was painted by about 100 artists from all over the world in the beginning of 1990. The gallery has become famous as East Side Gallery and is the world's largest open air gallery. The photographs were taken between 1990 and 2001.

Between Oberbaumbrücke (Oberbaum Bridge) and the Ostbahnhof, along the former borderline that ended at the Spree and Mühlenstrasse, stretches a unique picture palette that marks a sign of overcoming inhumanity.

Poland - Polityka Online. Polish author Stanislaw Lem died of heart failure at a hospital in Cracow on March 27. He was 84 years old.
In his obituary Aleksander Kaczorowski writes: "Between 1982 and 1988 he lived in Vienna. Back then, the famous science fiction writer Philip K. Dick caused an international scandal by claiming that there was no author by the name of Lem. According to Dick, it was impossible that such an extensive and diverse collection of works could be the fruit of the labour of a single person.
To put it as Mark Twain would: the death of Stanislaw Lem is conclusive proof that the rumours that he did not exist were grossly exaggerated."
+++ Culture/ Poland: The death of Stanislaw Lem
Germany - Die Welt. Hannes Stein also pays tribute to Stanislaw Lem, the Polish author of science fiction classics like "Solaris" and "The Star Diaries".
"He was a satirist and a philosopher; a fiercely cheerful pessimist who was always at least one step ahead of his readers. He was the most famous and probably the most intelligent Polish author of the twentieth century.
'What can physics tell us about happiness? he once asked, and answering his own question he said: 'About as much as it does about one hand clapping.'"
