I created this "Interface" as a substitutional identity – to compensate
my absence of the group of invited German & Japanese artists in the
contemporary art space Higure 17-15 CAS in Tokyo.

Pushing the front button connected me -the missing artist- in Berlin,
or wherever I have been. I saw the guest, but the guest could only
speak to me and hear me. Everybody who called the Skype-account
of this interface could have a view in the gallery space.
