open air swimming pool bars http://offline.area3.net/wartime/showit.php?replay=1
across the continents. Most recently the over 130 pieces of work in the project, by
70 internet medium artists, reflecting and reacting against war, past, present and
future was on show for over two weeks in a disused shipyard in Amsterdam at the
festival test-portal http://www.test-portal.nl alongside other open_digi projects. A
little souvenir in 3D of that occasion is available at

The next show after Romania for the >wartime< project is at StandArt, Madrid,
Espagne, 17th to 19th October.
