Since 1990 I have spend most of my working life in 'media labs', or simply workspaces where people work and experiment with media, with the note that all are connected to the internet. |
More will follow...
- The flying Desk, Amsterdam, now split between Desk.nl and and Desk.org. I am actually the founder and it started as my private whole sale company. 1994-1997. I must say that I did not attend much other spaces the first years. The realisation of a networked media work space without funding through jobs, consultance, webdevelopment (design, programming) and site management.
- Media lab ZKM Media Museum Karlsruhe. Work space for Salon Digital. 1997-1999. The ZKM has several medialabs. This one only gave attention to online media and strange things like 'net based arts'
