Remembering Hannes Mayer

Hannes Mayer passed away in March 2010 after an illness. He was only 34. As you will see from these photographs (many were taken on a visit to Rome and Vienna in 2007), Hannes was full of life and love and curiosity about the world.

Professor Ken Goldberg, creator of The Telegarden, sent the photograph below for Hannes's funeral with this message:

Hannes Mayer's ongoing engagement and support for the Telegarden was greatly appreciated by its world-wide community of participants and by the creators of the project. His Telegarden Archive will be a lasting tribute to his sense of humor and to his love of people and new technologies.
