Scorching hot “Skin job” Rachel. She was one of the robots in Ridley Scott’s epic movie Blade Runner.

Pickering Post technology editor Professor Adrian David Cheok was interviewed recently by Ph.D student Emma Yann Zhang.

Adrian has been working on an interactive, virtual lip system.  Two people can use these devices to share a virtual kiss from anywhere in the world that there is a broadband connection.

In the interview, he discusses the recent rejection of his work by Leftist art curators at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

In a move that Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of, David’s exhibition was rejected due to his Right-wing political beliefs in the right to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

This is a transcript of their conversation:

Emma: What is the idea behind your research Kissenger?

Adrian: About 10 years ago, I started looking at how people can transmit touch through the Internet. We developed different systems including Huggy Pajama, which is a wearable jacket that allows parents and children to hug each other remotely, and RingU, which is a ring for couples to send mini-hugs to each other through the Internet.

After we built these systems, I wanted to create a kissing machine that people can use to not only touch, but also kiss their loved ones over the Internet.

Kissenger is a new work based on original idea of a kissing machine, which allows people to share a kiss with each other through the Internet.

When we communicate with someone using our mobile phones now, we can only use visual-audio information such as voice, videos, texts or images.

I believe that physical touch is one of the most important ways to express our deep emotions and feelings with our loved ones.

This has been backed up by numerous research studies. Kissenger is a device to better express emotions and intimacy through Internet kissing.

Emma: How does it work?

Adrian: The device simulates human kissing through haptic stimulation on the lips. The device has a lip-like interface made of a soft rubber material, that interacts with the user’s lips and measures the lip pressure of the user using force sensors.

Underneath the lip interface is an array of actuators that generates real-time force feedback on various points of the partner’s lips to replicate the pressure sensations of kissing.

This interaction is bi-directional, so you can feel your partner’s lip pressure at the same time. The force data is transmitted over the Internet. The device is connected to a mobile phone, so that you can have a video call with your partner while using the device to send a kiss.

Emma: When did you get the invite to exhibit Kissenger in the Philadelphia Museum of Art?

Adrian: We were invited about one year ago by Michelle Fisher from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She asked us to make the Kissenger devices for her exhibition at the museum called “Designs for Different Futures”.

We had a team of engineers and researchers who worked nearly one year and spent so much time and effort to get the demonstration ready for the exhibition we were invited to.

 It cost us a lot of time and money, but we did it because we were invited by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and we thought it would be a very good opportunity for the public in Philadelphia to be able to see our work and understand our research. 

Emma: Why did they decide to remove your work from their exhibition?

Adrian: First, I received a call from Michelle Fisher and she said she was very concerned about my tweets. Obviously, she was concerned because I’m a great supporter of Donald Trump, the President of United States of America, and Steve Bannon.

It was very strange to me that I had to justify my tweets for this art exhibition, which is totally irrelevant to what I wrote on Twitter.

She also said my tweets were very rude. I don’t use any vulgarity or swear words. I use language that would be used by the President of the United States.

So why would I be held to different standards from the most powerful man in the world? What she was really concerned about was that I’m a right-wing political supporter.

At that stage she didn’t cancel our work. But when I ran in the 2019 Australian election as a candidate for the Fraser Anning’s Conservative National Party, headed by the great man Fraser Anning, then Senator of Queensland in Australia, it obviously became too much for the people at the museum.

They didn’t want an artist who was not only supportive of right-wing politics but was also a right-wing political candidate himself. I think it is absolutely horrendous.

If I were one of those fascist leftists, they would definitely exhibit my work in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

But Michelle Fisher was so politically biased, that she was prepared to cancel our work that we agreed to work on for nearly a year, and we spent a lot of money on it.

They just suddenly sent an email, rudely terminated our agreement, and removed our work from the exhibition.

Based on our previous phone call when she was complaining about my tweets, it was very obvious that they didn’t want an artist with right-wing views.

This is a terrible act and it is no different from the Nazis who burned the books and removed artworks which didn’t conform to their fascist views.

It’s unbelievable that the Philadelphia Museum of Art would actually support this atrocious and politically biased behaviour to silence an artist based on my political views and tweets, which are totally irrelevant to my artwork.

I asked Michelle Fisher from the museum, would Andy Warhol, who did many crazy things, be banned from the museum? We still see him as a great artist even though he did a lot of crazy things.

But the Philadelphia Museum of Arts is so biased, and especially Michelle Fisher who is so biased, and they are basically anti-art.

Emma: Was Kissenger exhibited in other museums?

Adrian: Kissenger has been invited to exhibit in many public exhibitions before, including Ars Electronica Festival, one of the most prestigious media art event in Linz, Austria, that drew 100,000 visits, and VivaTech exhibition in Paris, which was a 3-day innovation event that had over 68,000 visitors.

I also demonstrated Kissenger in all my keynote speeches around the world, and each time we received wonderful feedback and a lot of people were amazed and wanted to try out our devices.

What those visitors and audiences were interested in was the technology and innovation behind our work, not the political views of its creators.

So, I think to penalise an artist or innovator by removing his work from an exhibition because of his political inclination is a really bizarre and unfair act from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Some Planes Did Something
Posted on September 11, 2019 by Baron Bodissey
WTC Ummah
I borrowed the title of this post from Steven Hayward’s 9-11 piece at Power Line. See also “Ilhan Omar’s 9/11”.

Dymphna and I have been posting these 9-11 anniversary essays once a year, beginning in 2005, so this makes the fifteenth. I’m on my own now, and I must admit to a certain discouragement: in the eighteen years since the Twin Towers fell, our ability to identify and deal with the danger of Islamization has markedly deteriorated.

New World Order in Meltdown, But Russia Stronger Than Ever “………..The New World Order is in its death throes What these events have in common is that they amount to an admission that the globalist New World Order project in its present form is dead, or at least in its death throes. It has bumped its head against an impenetrable Sino-Russian wall of resistance. The heated totalitarian propaganda against Russia since 2001 (when the NWO realized that Putin wasn’t their man); regime change and color revolutions in neighboring countries; attempts at Maidan style coups in Moscow; and finally the sanctions… Read more »

Watched the last couple of hours of the fifth test this morning (sans chatte). Thinking Australia should have won the series 4-0, or at the very least 3-1 under a more astute captain. Wasted, highly speculative, reviews throughout the series, and the ridiculous decision to put England in to bat in the last match . . . Not the sort of decisions one would expect from a competent captain, plus Paine’s ordinary batting and wicketkeeping . . . As for the opening pair . . . may as well open with 3 and 4 . . . Disappointing!

Meanwhile Wayne Swan has volunteered to go to Greece to get them into budget surplus, and Gladys Liu has suggested that she would be willing to mediate negotiations between Trump and Xi to put an end to the U.S/China trade war.

The Drought continues and its relentless pace is only matched by the total disregard for the welfare of the Australian people by all levels of Government. The simple solution of building dams/pipelines to take advantage of the water from the north of Australia is beyond their comprehension. The visionary Bradford scheme, for example, has been discussed since 1938. Why do we need the useless overpaid deadwood /drones/ public serpents that inhabit all levels of government at all? They sit on their hands planning their next pay rises/lurks and perks while our country is dying. Guts and leadership are sadly missing… Read more »

The Independent has published a story describing that Russia’s military in Syria threatened to shoot down any invading Israeli warplanes using fighter jets or their S-400 system. Only time will tell here; but now we know that there is someone who has “the titanium attributes” and that would be the Russian President Vlad (the Impaler) Putin, to confront Israel, and let it know it cannot assassinate people wherever, and… Read more »
