Flatland: a romance of many dimensions,
"A land where all objects, animate and inanimate, appear as straight lines. Flatland has no sun, nor other heavenly bodies, but by its own laws of nature has a constant attraction to the south, and this peculiarity serves as a compass." Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland, New York, 1884, cited in Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi, The Dictionary of Imaginary Places, Great Britain: Bloomsbury, 1999.

Koji Asano "One of the world's most imaginative composers, Koji Asano defies simple categorization. A native of Japan who now resides in Barcelona, Spain, Asano has composed tunes for dance performances, film soundtracks, and video art exhibitions. Solo pianists, guitar bands, computers, string quartets, and his own Tokyo-based group the Koji Asano Ensemble have performed his compositions."

"They are the authors of some of the most perfect media exploits of the last years, such as the creation and diffusion, at the opening of the 49th Venice Biennial, of the computer virus "" or the memorable theft of the art gallery Their most enigmatic work, to which they attend since years, is called GLASNOST - transparency - is a permanent self-surveillance system that consists on the monitoring and diffusion of an enormous amount of data related to their private life."

Thomas Rentmeister Of his own works the German artist Thomas Rentmeister says: "It is true that the essential aspect of my highly polished polyester sculptures is their surface. If I could, I would leave out everything concealed beneath it and let the sculptures lie around in real space like virtual shells or infinitely thin-walled soap bubbles. But since that isn't possible, I try to give them a hyperartificial appearance that seems out of place in reality through intensive processing by hand, so that at least the idea of a virtual body can take shape in the imagination. I steer the objects toward the virtual, so to speak, to the extent that reality permits." (From the site).

Memory of Snow Echigo-Tsumari Art Necklace Project, Japan, 2000. "The project has various aspects such as art, architecture, community planning, natural environment, agriculture, education, urbanization and depopulation, aging society and so on. These issues being addressed by the project are not only specific to the region, but are universal throughout Japan and the world. Therefore, the project enables the commitment of outside people from different fields. As a result, artists, architects, ecologists, educators, urban planners, journalists, and many more have become sympathetically involved in the project." (from the site)
