i Am a LEAF on the Wind

chaos of the making

which word

i Am a LEAF on the Wind floating escaping seeking direction
inside the millions of Words
Hundreds of rules
Thousands of images
i Am a LEAF on the Wind  realising what trees have been
a selection in the forest value of numbers reselection
i Am a LEAF on the Wind Blown away in thousands
curls, swirls, whirls, spinning Twists as to wonder
Where to land

Chaos in the fallen leaf

falling

i Am a LEAF on the Wind
What to say as things, people, trees, rocks, seeds, birds, bees pass BY
i Am a LEAF on the Wind  rushing to find soil
to enter the world of ground
aWay from air bubbles, rumbling resonant vibration
Right back into that wandering feeling to set the first step into the unknown direction
discovering which way to go while roaming
like a leaf on the wind
finding the moment to fall

overwhelming chaos

do you know that feeling

and go against all odds
figuring things out while moving
as a fall is just The beginning of lost memories of
strength
courage
stamina
intensity
a leaf on the wind is not afraid to fall down
to a new other existent surrounding
to become a nemophilist

chaos inside an image

i must not forget what i did to create the new

The above is not much else than artistic therapy on the moment i feel so overwhelmed by the new project.
Now  a new picture hangs there to remind me
i Am a LEAF on the Wind

It is also a part of showing a more personal struggle that lays behind the Land Art Forest.
Before i had the land and the ideas followed upon it now i have the ideas but not the land.
How to persuade people to join this project, without loosing the artistic approach.
On one side there is the need to be professional according to the rules and perspectives that people have and on the other side lays the forest as art.

seeing chaos

what it should be

 

In the end
i Am a LEAF on the Wind
ready to fall Down

EMPTY

EMPTY SPACE

space

While reading the new ‘LandArt book’ Expeditie Land Art it occurred to me that magical word empty, in Land Art.
On page 89 you find the start of a description of the writers visit to Lightning Field from Walter de Maria.
What Walter achieved with this piece of Land Art is to create the experience of an empty field, a field which will stay empty for many generations to come.
Most fields will not achieve that, that immense feeling of emptiness.

alone

alone

A filed is never truly empty, bare, blank, deserted there is something always something. YET, it can give you that feeling of being purposeless, meaningless never unfinished.
Walter de Maria made sure to preserve that feeling in the whole of the creation and preservation of his work The Lighting Field.

People will say and did say this is no art but than was it his purpose to create art or was it to preserve a landscape on the brink of disappearing of this planet.
Due to his planting of metal rods you now can visit this place with just 5 others alone without; phone, tv, radio, books, magazines, internet for at least 24 hours to experience empty, silence, idle, clear vision.

Everything in our lives has some kind of monetary value yet the most important aspects of life appears to us free of any charge. It will not be for long and than when it is gone perhaps than we realise what we have sold.

Leaving details

As a part of an exhibition in 2010 with the title ‘GreenbloodRedblood’ i created some images.

The amazing veins in a leaf searching for that river trail.

How does it flow.

For only a moment.

In a forest lays the hidden reality, de verborgen werkelijkheid, realidade occult, Realiti cudd, versteckte Realität and so much more.
These photos are experiments with filters and framing the coming months there will be many more experiments.

The camera is fantastic in macro photos and has several possibilities for filters like: fisheye, sparkle, reflection, fragmented, pop art, soft focus, pale light colour, grainy film, pin hole, diorama, dramatic tone.
Not sure by any of them, it can give a mixed reality which i like to achieve in some way. Let the photos be in such a way that people look and wonder what is……….

There will be several series, several stories to tell and one will be the story of a leaf.

The way to show? Perhaps as a collage. Perhaps as a leaf. Not sure, i have plenty ideas.
The roaming balls, the hidden holes, the forgotten tunnel just to mention 3.

The dead leafs are on the path for just a few more weeks so no time for experiment more time for that one moment of seeing.
