‘127109 & 127110’ (2014) by Lotte Geeven.

Two sensory robots deployed on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. According to currents of the sea the two objects are supposed to meet in the middle of the ocean approximately one year from now.  The location and time of the deployment of both objects has been carefully calculated in order to optimize the chances of an encounter. The movement of the robots can be followed on http://127109and127110.com.

William Anastasi, ‘Subway Drawing (V. Dwan)’ (1968)

Riding the subway with a piece of paper lying in his lap, Anastasi would hold a pencil lightly, allowing the vibrations of the train to move it across the paper. He would often sign the image with the name of the person he was travelling to see.
