influencingmachineA few years ago Zoe Beloff discovered "The Influencing Machine" an essay by Victor Tausk, a Viennese psychoanalyst and early follower of Freud written in 1919. He wrote about a patient, Miss Natalija A. a former student of philosophy who complained to him that a bizarre electrical apparatus, which she believed was operated secretly by physicians in Berlin, was manipulating her thoughts. In his text, Tausk gave a new interpretation of this common schizophrenic delusion of being persecuted by a machine. He believed that it represented the patient's own body that had become alien and strange to her. Therapy did not last long. After three sessions Natalija quit claiming that now Tausk too had fallen victim to the "diabolical apparatus," she could no longer trust him. Soon afterwards in 1920 he committed suicide.

Some time ago I decided that having my own logo would be of utmost importance. "Ich AG" (Me Inc.) may be regarded as an "Unwort" (un-word, no-word) but that doesn't change the fact that it exists and that it is in dire need of a corporate symbol. To cut a long story short I finally googled my way to designcontest.net and started a $75 logo design contest. It was amazing. People from all over the world (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, Romania, United States - just to name a few) droped in and came up with really nice logos.

The winner of the designcontest was Julieta Garcia, a freelance web & graphic designer from Argentina. Not only did she come up with a logo I can't stop looking at, but also designed (for free!) the Shockwave Flash-Header for mahalanobis and economist.at. I strongly recommend visiting her Website at Creativesouls. What are you waiting for?? Prices can rise quickly in the art market!

A series of photos by Bobby Neel Adams.

Two photographs of the same person, from different periods of time (child and adult) are spliced together. In this fusion a jump-of-time is established at the tear.
