As this is my very first CNN iReport it must be in the section ‘your views of space and stars'.
But where to start and where to end? I wrote 100+ of blog entries, articles and research papers - some of them quoted in the academic world quite often, some short stories, two books about digital art and quality management, gave lectures all over the world, but now WOW *I am a CNN i-Reporter*! And of course I must tell something new on my first entry at CNN:
I am selected as a contributor and author of 'rezz', the famous magazine of digital art and culture from next month on. And I will start with the short story 'The Artefact' along with an interview by curator Neo Gurgelwasser. But does this not implicate that I have to show a great picture you surely will say. rezz - edited by Jami Mills - is in a league with the German Wolkenkratzer or looks like filling a space Andy Warhol´s magazine 'interview' left unfilled as it was finally shut down in the old format in 2008. You dear CNN iReaders shall enjoy the beauty of the very first picture that will be printed in rezz in 2014. Above [as the page header] you see it and in rezz it will come in bigger size!
Title: The beetle on its way home. It shows the beetle made by Canadian artist Bryn Oh flying towards 'The cathedral of fractals' made by Gem Preiz, France.
'The Artefact' will be printed in rezz January 2014. The Artefact was first published in German language at Teleopolis by Heise Verlag one year ago.
The artwork shown can be explored in a 3D world based on opensim technology. One of my very next CNN iReports will be about this breathtaking technology in an interview with CNN iReporter qNav What.
