    I live in the netherlands and went to visit his studio a few months ago.
    I met him first time at Ars Electronica 2005 and I was ipnotized.

    if you guys are interesed I got more videos about other stuff too, like the scanner he built in the 70’s (unbelievable).

    let me know and I’ll be glad to post them.
