etoy at C5

On the occasion of C5 corporation's ZeroOne project "Quest for Success", agent HAEFLIGER boarded a go-cart with a 35'' etoy.SHARE-CERTIFICATE in order to pitch the curators during the quest with a visual of MISSION ETERNITY's ARCANUM CAPSULE.




When zooming around the San Jose city hall, the certificate almost produced a lift-off - thanks to C5 agent Amul Goswamy for the competent driving!

Opening ISEA ZeroOne 2006

>> YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN MISSION ETERNITY - ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING OPEN CONTENT PROJECTS IN THE HISTORY OF ART.

ISEA and ZeroOne, the Festival of Art on the Edge in San Jose, hosts the official launch of MISSION ETERNITY.
Location: Museum of Art, San Jose, CA
Opening hours for the public everyday from August 8 - 13 / 5 - 10 p.m.

The glisteningly white MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS shines in front of the Museum of Art in San Jose, CA. In close vicinity to mortal art, card board architecture, Californian palm trees and dedicated security guards, the SARCOPHAGUS performs its dateless duty of demonstrating deadlines that are here to be crossed by art.

Visitors are ushered through a sound gate into the SARCOPHAGUS after checking in to receive angel status. For security reasons, spiritual and physical, the individual visiting time is limited to 5 minutes inside the SARCOPHAGUS. Instable and spiritually impaired visitors are discouraged from entering the SARCOPHAGUS. Additional information material is available outside and etoy.AGENTS in white may be approached for information and initiation.

The MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS is a mobile sepulcher for users who prefer to be buried at an indetermined geographical location. The mobile cemetery tank is a 20 foot ISO standard cargo container (6m long, 2.4m wide, 2.6m high, 4 tons weight) and potentially travels planet earth forever. The system allows for simple re-location of the mortal remains of up to 1000 M∞ PILOTS.

The SARCOPHAGUS is equipped with an immersive LED screen of 17’000 pixels that cover the walls, ceiling and floor on which the visitors can walk. It displays the ARCANUM CAPSULE content and functions as a public installation wherever the TANK
travels.

STORAGE ANGELS, CODERS, LAWYERS AND MORTAL REMAINS COURIERS CAN APPLY ONLINE FOR ANGEL STATUS AND PARTICIPATE IN THE MISSION.

Visit missioneternity.org for detailed project documentation, software download, and initiation protocols.

>>Infrastructure and organization

The festival and the local sponsors in the Silicon Valley contribute an abusive 3% to the production costs for this show. The remaining costs and risks are carried by etoy.AGENTS/SHAREHOLDERS and contributions came from foreign institutions including the Swiss government (Swiss Art Council Pro Helvetia and Swiss Ministry of Culture). etoy expects that an art festival with a budget of 2.5m USD does not spend everything on administration but helps to finance the content production.

ENTER THE SARCOPHAGUS AND JOIN THE GROUND CREW IN WHITE - in front of the Museum of Art, San Jose CA.
Aug 8 - 13, 2006 / 5 - 10 p.m.

Pre-Opening Pressure

After the landing delay, the SARCOPHAGUS now undergoes testing and detailing to accommodate for the visitors next week. No exception to pre-opening work, high pressure is our fuel: painting the square around the SARCOPHAGUS, attending to the palm trees' special needs, fending off zealous guards, and training volunteers. The etoy.GROUND-CREW gets its white uniform dirty.

A warm welcome and thanks to our new local agent etoy.MARLAND!

MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS landed in san jose

after the hardest customs and logistics nightmare in the history of etoy.CORPORATION (worse than tokyo and torino together) etoy could today successfully off-load the SARCOPHAGUS TANK in front of the san jose museum of art.



the MISSION ETERNITY GROUND CREW in silicon valley (etoy.AGENTS monorom, silvan, vincent and zai) was challenged to the maximum extent during the 168 hours since arrival on american terrain. the etoy.CEO was close to nuke the entire hi-tech capital because of all the hassle and incompetence he had to deal with to get a standard 20 feet cargo container trough the port of oakland: customs, Homeland Security, Container Security Initiative and everybody else x-rayed, inspected and forgot, lost or just blocked the etoy.TANK about 7 million times as it seams... it took letters from the mayor of san jose, the swiss arts council PRO HELVETIA and the ministry of culture Switzerland (BAK), as well as sliming, crying and shouting plus 700'000 miles of etoy.NERVES.

the etoy.SHARE value collapsed (a 24 months low of $5.10 per etoy.SHARE unit was reached in the night of august first).

only 20 hours ago etoy.ZAI's luggage was already packed in the etoy.TOYOTA where the CEO slept last night - ready to escape the valley to move to san francisco or nevada desert to set up an alternative "festival of art on the edge".

only legendary wanda webb's brute-force emergency management skills and the emotional and intellectual support of the 3 other etoy.AGENTS on site could prevent the second etoy.AMERICAN-SUPERGAU.

analysts forcast stabilization of the situation now as the etoy.INSTALLATION for ISEA 2006 / ZERO ONE is in place and seams to be in acceptable condition after traveling 25.000 miles on trains, vessel and trucks during the last 35 days. only one massive 4 inch deep scratch on top of the container causes headache among etoy.DISPLAY-ENGINEERS.
