hitchBOT / 2

The great idea came to germany: „Can robots trust humans“ is the idea behind the hitchhiking robot who had crossed canada by it´s own last summer.

Together with its “parents” hitchBOT had visited our place in frankfurt / germany. The reunion was great because together with hichBOT we had started our trips through america in halifax in july 2014. Here you can see the blog contribution about hitchBot in halifax

virunga movie

If you want to learn how difficult and dangerous conservation work can be, then you have to look at the „virunga movie“ (available on Netflix only). For the frankfurt zoological society (fzs.org) I had been in the virunga national park / democratic republic of congo in 2007 and 2009. Here you can watch my  video “hell & paradise in the heart of africa” about my experiences.

daniel beer / alp galleries

We missed the opeing of the exhibition, but we took the chance to visit the finnisage. the alp gallery in frankfurt had presented paintings from daniel baer. Here you get some impressions of his work and for information about the gallery  and my exhibition in 2013 please click here.

return flight

Dallas – ultimate destination for our first stage. Stupid timing, I know: during the winter you shouldn´t have a return flight from the southern united states to germany. But there was no other chance. During the last 6 months  we met so many interesting and nice people that it was not easy to say ‚farewell’ to the US.

On  the 1st. of april (no joke) we will go on, heading towards alaska. stay excited because there are already some crazy topics! But: what can we improve  in our blog? We are very curious about suggestions and improvements and we always look forward to getting your comments to the posts.

Are you interested in a mail list? Which artist, musician or odd guys do you recommend on the way to alaska and then south to mexico? By the way: there will be several posts during our travel break and we would be very happy if you recommend our blog to your friends. © n.g.
