I have the pleasure to announce that I was accepted as a PhD student and Research Assistant in the Media x Design Laboratory at EPFL, in Lausanne, Switzerland, in the context of a revolutionary new lab between arts & sciences, called SINLAB, focusing on performance and new technologies that was launched officially on February 14th 2012, at the Manufacture, with a dance performance by Chris Ziegler called «corpus pygmalion». I made a small video improvisation on the music of Andrea Valvini and the live glitches of Benjamin Efrati during the launch party.
