Hi Helen and all,
I was hoping someone other than myself was going to say something about Salvatore on the list. Mainly because I'm not well enough at the moment to write about something so important. Sure, posting and doing small energy things on platforms such as Twitter etc is different than writing something special. There is a general and very interesting piece of text saying goodbye on Oriana's Facebook page which I'll post here.
We showed the work "la cura" at three different venues, and I'm glad his interview with Patrick is in the "frankenstein reanimated" book, it reflects a solid reference to his presence with Furtherfield. I'll also be featuring Salvatore & Oriana in my other book next year about 25 years of Furtherfield, which was what my PhD was all about. That'll be exciting.
Ruth and I loved Salvatore's intelligence, experimentation and positivity. It was infectious, generous and addictive. The combination of Salvatore & Oriana together, is a playful wildness I will miss. I hope to meet Oriana in the near future.
It is especially concerning regarding Salvatore's battle with cancer, because as many know on here, I've had my own troubles with cancer and nearly died myself. I'm just so glad that I am alive, and able to share with others his fantastic spirit in my own way.
Goodbye Salvatore, we'll never forget you - you're still with us now.

> salvatore died a couple of weeks ago, on 18 july. has this sad news already come through on netbehaviour? maybe i missed it ... i am remembering salvatore's smile and laugh, his warmth and generosity; and the cyberformance that myself, francesco buonaiuto and miljana perić created for "la cura" (which was only performed once, for salvatore & oriana, in 2012 or 13 & now exists only as fragments on my hard drive).
