Below are some artists/exhibitions that I discovered recently and found interesting (not related to my research tho)

The SPEED SHOW exhibition format: Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and live pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted.

5. A nice interactive morse code learning website that I have marked down an afternoon in Chinese New Year Holiday for it: https://www.morsecode.io

Last but not least, I’d like to share a quote allegedly from Father Alfred D’Souza (though I can’t find any information about the person online except for all the nice quotes credited to him).

“For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time to still be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time … and remember that time waits for no one…”
