Banalograms 台灣 OCT 22 – NOV 2 / EVENT OCT 27.


Banalograms is coming to Taiwan.

Perhaps a jammojito or two and a slice of wisdom will whet your appetite.

Exhibition runs from 22 Oct – 2 Nov.

The ‘launch party’ is on the 27th of October, late afternoon/evening.

It’s at a rather splendid cafe in Hsinchu called  江山藝改所 Jiang Shan Yi Gai Suo

That cafe is hard to find.


Jampedia Entry # 6


It is often believed that chocolate was an early form of cement which a builder accidentally came across when he fell into a cement mixer and had to eat his way out. In fact, chocolate goes back even further to the origins of the universe which were discovered by Chinese astronomers in the 19th century. In Chinese ‘chocolate bar’ is 巧克力棒. The pinyin romanization for 棒 (bar) is bàng. The Big Bang hence in fact means the ‘Big Bar’, a name derived from ancient Chinese astronomers who thought that the origin of the universe came from a massive chocolate bar exploding. Einstein confirmed this belief with his formula and recipe: E=MC², or Excellence = Mass X Cocoa².
