  • Gromyko Semper hi joe...still waiting for john's response...curently there has been an error,again,unfortunately on the return of all the works, but we have faith,with Amy's help that we shall have the works returned soon..
  • Amy Wong Loste Hi everyone, as of this morning, I received an update from Jon Go Tiong (which I will verify shortly with the forwarder) that of the two batches missent, the one from Singapore has been retrieved and is on its way back to Manila. We're waiting for news of the shipment sent to Danny Malboeuf in the US. Danny has graciously agreed to notify us as soon as he's been informed of/received it and will assist us in reverting back the shipment. From Manila, the individual pieces will be resent back to you for their final and proper destinations. All this is now being directly handled by ECX Forwarders (where most of you shipped your works orginally), which was contracted by Jon for all shipping matters. They are also taking care of the costs of transport as they were responsible for the error to begin with. Thanks once again for your patience. We will relay the updates as we receive them.

This should be proof positive that BLACK HOLES do exist!

From all accounts it appears now that works had been returned. I had received mine, though I needed to go to customs and explain that it was a return of my own work (and to the originating country, Austria), otherwise I would have been charged VAT. While time consuming, it was relatively easy (after waiting for a customs officer for over one hour, plus the trip to the outskirts of the city where the office was located) and done in less than one minute, once it was my turn.
I am glad that this ordeal is now over, but it strengthened my resolve to avoid participating in exhibitions outside my area, that is Schengen (EU).
