Faces-l.net offline on 8.02.2013


A small but important info about our running website under www.faces-l.net. As the version of the system (Drupal 5) is meanwhile old and has some security issues we can't fix, we have to take it down until the new stable version I want to use for the FACES website (Drupal Commons) is available, which will be in march.

I will be able to secure your login data but not the content of your profile page. (Its too much work to be honest)

Please have a look on your own profile page and in the case you want to keep it just save the content of your page in in a text file and save it on your computer until we are ready for a new start.

Faces-l.net will be available until Friday 8th 10:00 am.

Waiting for a stable release of Drupal Commons

Soon Faces is getting a new Face! The only thing I am waiting for is a stable release of Drupal Commons.

Enables organizations to quickly create online social communities for both collaboration and content delivery. New features in Version 3.0 include a completely rebuilt user experience, deeper mobile support, and bolstered analytics capabilities for enhanced moderator productivity.

European Media Art Festival, Osnabrueck 18-22 April 2012

A program of works by Shelly Silver will be featured, we can't wait!

EMAF is one of the most influential forums of international Media Art. As a meeting point for artists, curators, distributors, galleries and an audience of experts the festival has a great impact on the topics and aesthetics of Media Art. Each year the festival offers its visitors a current overview of experimental films, installations, performances, digital formats and hybrid forms, ranging from personal and political subjects or formal experiments to provocative statements from the pulsating area of “Media Art – Society”. The Festival sees itself as a place of experimentation and a laboratory where extraordinary works, experiments and ventures are created and presented.
