'just us at work' — Artist Michiko Itatani visits us at the Amtsgericht (and also visits dOCUMENTA 13 too!)

Michiko Itatani, Artist and School of the Art Institute in Chicago Professor, visited 'just us at work' and DOE Projekts in the Amtsgericht on Thursday and Friday, June 28 and 29. After our work day concluded, we saw the work of Michiko's former student Sopheap Pich in the Fridericianum. Michiko was also kind to bring us (and give to us!) two small paintings that she made -- using 'code' forms. Thank you Michiko for your visit and your gifts!

A few more photos taken today at breakfast and also outside our workspace at the Amtsgericht, Kassel.

'just us at work' — d(13) 'Resolution' and 'Return the World'

After working in the Amtsgericht today, the weather became sunny and invited a visit to d(13)'s nearby exhibitions, one by  Aman Mojadidi in "The Bunker" and titled "The Resolution." The other outdoor installation is called "Return the World" by Adrián Villar Rojas. Both are thought-provoking.

'just us at work' — a sunny Monday in Kassel, Germany

The weather in Kassel has turned warm.  The sun made shadows from the code forms on the Amtsgericht windows. We moved our tables to a cooler place in the entrance hall.

Cebo and Irene discuss an art work.
