New whips please

Last year we found out that the rubber rings we used for producing our PainStation whips were not available any more.

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. The project with intelligent wheelchairs is getting sucked in our pipeline and it seems that it will stay there until we are old and handicapped people. But anyway i found recently this nostalgic video of the first test run.


We found this article in the Germanwings magazine. If you go to Berlin you should not leave the town without having had a date with the PainStation at the Computerspiele Museum 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.


Our beloved little fellow called furninja which has now awakened from its decade slumber will be shown at the nuit blanche in Amiens on October 2013 the 12th. Thus some service and improvement tasks have to be done but now he is back in business and ready to cut everything into pieces.

The world is a serious place these days!
