I met Dominik Landwehr 3 years ago during our project “digital transformations”. Since then we talk once in a while and share our thoughts. He is a very special character and it is always fun talking with him. Dominik is responsible for music and new media at MIGROS Kulturprozent at Zurich.
> > – what makes switzerland so unique?
4 languages und 4 cultures with a common history,
a very rich and living cultural life,
a certain stubbornness and conservatism,
high quality of living not just in the tourist areas but also in
major cities of the country.

Oh this is a misunderstanding. i am not good in tinkering and most of my inventions never worked. it is more the fantasy about tinkering and building robots. i like people who do that … and i am trying to find them.

a window from reality into the open.

i am trying to find it out. maybe less than i think today.
