Last year we found out that the rubber rings we used for producing our PainStation whips were not available any more. What a drama because we need this special thickness and flexibility of this material. But luckily we get in contact with Danny D. He organized us a whole pile of new rings. That will be enough for the next decade. thanks man.

A long time ago we started a project together with Niklas Roy, a young talented media artist from Berlin.

We welcome our new trainee “Timmi” who left the hippster mekka Berlin to join us a couple of months in our creators cave in Cologne Kalk to get a glimpse of an artists hard working live. He willl suport us for the production period for the upcoming solo exhibition ”Spieltrieb” 2014-2016 tour through east Europe which will be organized by the Goehte Institut Krakow starting in Sept 2014 in Krakow. He seems to be a smart guy capable of handling numbers as well as the soldering iron.
