« FIN IV, the finale | Main | Bye bye blog! (or Ann has left the building) »

Hansi is leaving the building... soon

Hansi is leaving the building... soon

Hopping over from the neighboring country, Hansi joined the Interactive department last year after studying in Linz, Austria. Kid-genius and a self-taught programmer, Hansi codes everything and can work so fast that he mostly spends his office time browsing YouTube and showing off the best clip of the day. He is half the duo behind the popular BenettonPlay -- all the kids are gonna miss their hero.

A Fabrica project which Hansi is a part of, the Tuned Stairs, will be at the big show FABRICA: Les Yeux Ouverts, opening next week at the Pompidou. After the show opens, Hansi will get packing and hop right back on to Austria where he'll enjoy his hometown favorite Schnitzel.

Hansi Raber, Interactive Department, October 2005-2006

What did you do before coming to Fabrica?
Well, mostly school and freelance stuff. My most recent thing was studying Math, but I've put that on hold right now.

What's the plan now?
I missed the registration for this university year so I'm trying to wait till something just hits me. Maybe I'll apply for the Ars Electronica Futurelab or some other place where I can work till I start studying again. But it will be very hard to find another workplace where I can just show up at lunch time and watch YouTubes. If it all fails I'll try to be a professional Accordion player.

Your most priceless accomplishment from the experience here
Flat-mate Francois and I climbed the crane behind the Drinking bar. I had no Idea how high cranes are...

Your favorite part about living in Treviso
When I first came here the day had 24 blank hours that were waiting to be freshly filled with whatever I wanted to do, it's not just going to live in another place, it really is like starting a new live.
What I also really like is that we're treated like kids - our lunch, our money, our flat, our flights - it's all taken care of. If there was only someone doing my dishes...

Your least favorite part about living in Treviso
This town is always asleep when I'm awake!

Any last words for the Fabricanti?
You can't go to the toilet at 6:30 cause the cleaners are there, on Mondays there are french fries in mensa and you can save some money by taking out olive oil and toilet paper.

Seriously... What I expected from Fabrica was inter-department work on projects that get you really excited, instead I got sweet life and mostly my-department work. I really wish there will be a combination of the best of both. Well... maybe under Alfio's lead :)

P.S. Give a smile to the mensa ladies!


Bye Hansi, we'll miss you!
