Gik_ is an experimental project that was created in Cátedra Wolkowicz, UBA 2016. It’s a science fiction channel, aimed at people interested in space culture, computers and general science… It works by hacking, surprising users in order to direct them to it’s content.
Idents are based on topics from science fiction, such as space conquest (Trump ID), men with superpowers (Messi ID) or Man Vs. Machine (Kaptcha ID), linking general culture to specific content from the channel.
Originally the work was done in Spanish language, translated for this presentation afterwards. That is why the name Gik_ (a “loan” of “geek”), in Spanish sounds the same but is written differently.

Trentemøller has crafted a logical successor to 2013’s ‘Lost’ – a record that in many ways managed to truly capture the visceral live experience of Trentemøller as a full-band.
In much the same manner that ‘Lost’ built on from the somber cinematic classic that was ‘Into The Great Wide Yonder’, ‘Fixion’ has embraced the Danish artist’s trademark melancholy and matured it into something uniquely atmospheric and darkly romantic.

Someone may wonder why I go about in private, giving advice and busying myself with the concerns of others, but do not venture to come forward in public and advise the state. I will tell you the reason of this.
You have often heard me speak of an oracle or sign which comes to me, and is the divinity which Meletus ridicules in the indictment.
This sign I have had ever since I was a child. The sign is a voice which comes to me and always forbids me to do something which I am going to do, but never commands me to do anything, and this is what stands in the way of my being a politician.

Thus reduced, Hannibal had recourse to stratagem; he caused two thousand head of oxen which he had in his camp to have torches or dry fagots well fastened to their horns, and lighting them in the beginning of the night, ordered the beasts to be driven on towards the heights commanding the passages out of the valley and the enemy’s posts; when this was done, he made his army in the dark leisurely march after them.
