Conducting a week-long video workshop in Luang Prabang, Lao People’s Democratic Republic for 1minutes foundation/UNICEF. Two days at the tail to shoot material. Looking for an actor to deliver a monologue in an internet cafe. Lao bluescreen pop, country groove and karaoke music videos are fuelling my anticipation.

Freaks run the world. It is through fun that they invent what becomes our reality, even if their jokes are later updated to guide matters in unappetizing ways. Our society is built and managed by software. To understand how we can act in relation to such systems and how they are made, we need to get a sense of the energy that drives software, the energy based on fun. We can come closer to these practices through the territories that are in-between geeky humour, digital folklore, cultures of using conventional software, artistic software and history of computation. It is in the fact that exploration takes place through fun and the bizarre territories always exist that there is a hope for an open horizon.
