Make Love, Not Art

“I don’t want it to be essentially the same – I want it to be exactly the same. Because the more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel.” Andy Warhol

“I have nothing to say and I’m saying it. The highest purpose is to have no purpose at all.” John Cage

“I have no special message. I wish I did. It would be great if I had one.” Andy Warhol

Make Love, Not Art

Make Love Not Art / Lyrics:
(by Igor Štromajer)

Make Love, Not Art

Make Love, Not Art

Make Love, Not Art
Make Love, Not Art
Make Love, Not Art

Make Love, Not Art

Ballettikka Internettikka Insecttikka
(Internet Ballet)
by Igor Štromajer and Brane Zorman

Saturday, 29 May 2010 at 22:00 (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris Local Time)
Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam
Live Internet Broadcast

– authors and performers: Igor Štromajer & Brane Zorman
– theoretical adviser: Bojana Kunst
– live sound (manipulated and performed) by MC Brane Vs BeitThron
– live video edited by Igor Štromajer

Co-produced by the Netherlands Media Art Institute (Nederlands Instituut Voor Mediakunst), Amsterdam (, Intima Virtual Base – Institute for Contemporary Arts ( and Cona Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia (, May 2010.

Ballettikka Internettikka is a series of tactical art projects which began in 2001. It explores wireless Internet ballet performances combined with guerrilla tactics and mobile live Internet broadcasting strategies. After invading the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow (2002), La Scala in Milan (2004), the National Theatre in Belgrade (2005), Volksbühne in Berlin (2006), the City Hall and Lippo Centre in Hong Kong (2007), a construction site in Seoul (2008), the Norwegian island Svalbard in the Arctic Ocean (2008), the Japanese island Minami Torishima in the Pacific Ocean (2009) and other institutions, places and their concepts. Štromajer and Zorman are now preparing a new Internet ballet – Ballettikka Internettikka Insecttikka, performing and broadcasting live from the coded location C3K44XE in Hamburg. The live event will be broadcast to the public at the Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam, and on the Internet at:

In the Port of Hamburg, at the micro location C3K44XE, Stromajer and Zorman will release two micro robotic bugs: two artificial autonomous robotic toy insects (based on the HexBug Alpha and HexBug Bravo platforms), equipped with mechanical and electronic sensors and with two wireless waterproof night vision micro spy-cameras, let loose to commit a parallel suicide (the third, invisible micro robotic bug, equipped with the same camera, will observe the situation from a distance).

Both of the robotic bugs are programmed only to commit suicide – at the same time (with up to +/- 5 seconds time tolerance) – but not how to do it. Their intelligent decision-making electronic system will allow them to select the method of their simultaneous death.

Visitors of the Performmikka Internettikka event in Amsterdam and visitors on-line will be able to monitor the robotic bugs’ path to death, and their final decision.

How will the robotic insects decide? Autonomously or politically?
