Today on 7 April 2005, Images Festival opens in Toronto/Canada (7-16 April 2005), at the Images Mediatheque the section of the online projects is installed, among them Wilfried’s RRF Project in a modified version of the one presented on BEAP – Biennale of Electronic Art in Perth/Australia 2004.

The RRF Project in Toronto

[R][R][F]200x—>XP – global networking project created, programmed, designed and organised by Agricola de Cologne.

The project started in 2003 simultaneously online in Internet and offline in physical space and was finalized at the end of 2006. presented in physical space more then 65 times on all continents.

The global networking project consists of 8 Memory Channels, which contain again different modules and external artists projects, dealing with the fundamental questions of human existance in most individual and different ways.

Each Memory Channel may contain different modules and/or external artists projects which form and complete the idea of the network, this way RRF is incorporating the entire Internet as a source of information and a resource of links.

The project’s interface is constructed in form of a human brain, the symbol for the most complex networking construction consisting of millions synapses which all are connected with each other.

The interface does not only represent the visual basis for navigating the project online, but also the interface which as a navigating contruction when the project is installed as an interactive installation in physical space.

St.Petersburg


Today, Wilfried is using his seven-mile boots for jumping over to St.Petersburg (Russia), where – Unauthorized Access Festival – opens @ Ermitage Museum St. Petersburg/Russia (7-21 April 2006), it is an unusual concept to use in an unauthorized way web based projects in the framework of the exhibition space of classical paintings, which probably came into the possession of the museum in an unauthorized way as spoils of war, once – and there were really many wars since the foundation of Eremitage (18th century), so the museum seems to be a proper place for such a controversy exhibition, including Wilfried’s NewMediaArtProjectNetwork://cologne, which changed its name and purpose into “The New Museum of Networked Art” in 2010. Under the currrent legal and cultural circumstances in 2020, such a concept that overrides tacitly the authors rights would hardly be possible, in the given case, at least the exhibited artists were not registering any protest, and – yes, actually Wilfried learned only after the festival had taken place, that and how it was used in the framework of the festival. Obviously, the artists including Wilfried felt even honoured to be selected that way.
