trickle dikkel

Here we are with how it went and not went while dribbling with earth pigments over paper.

dripping mountain

Most paper could not cope and just became dirty, yet the simple drawing paper went how it should have went.
Leaving a river, better said veins. Like the sea leaving the beach.

dripdrop

more to come

Water uncontrollable dripping all over the place, buckling the paper in hills, mountains and valleys.

Background courage.

The veins on paper reflect the veins in the leaf. A sheet off paper with the leaving leaf.

water pomp

While doing and doing a bit more you get other surprises.
love how the camera interpretative the subject to its own demand.

A decision has been made to create a photo-poetry-book with the title Mestanda.

The book will be for sale at the exhibition and have a selection of the photoworks on display plus some extras.
You will be able to buy it no matter where you are on this planet.

Sometimes things just happen while clearing up, finding bits and pieces, reading old notebooks.
The poem starts in the top left corner and ends next to the photo, hard to read but perhaps that is not needed.
Als je Nederlands spreekt dan kan je elk woord lezen.

 

leaf collage

Some experiments in making collages.

 

leaf3

its all within the eye

 

Its made with the help of a desktop publishing program.

The photo was made very pale as if suffered from the flu or so.

 

leafdust

 

You cut and paste and cut some more.

Not even sure where it will go.

Leafy photos made different to create the impression of a totally new forest erasing the old.

 

Slide two

Going from a poem inside the drop towards the conversation on the ground.

LandArt

 

As there is not much more to say i share some great sites to explore:

The idea is not new but old, planting a garden is art, illustrating that garden is art, telling stories about that garden is art, taking a photo of that garden is art, hiding in that garden is art.

First slide

Wooowyyy it is done. The slide show is finished and the text is send for translation into Portuguese.
The slide will also form the pages of a booklet with additional information.
The website has been updated and the Land Art Forest is life, the first person stands on the list.

The hardest was to shift through  all them photos and than to find the words with it. The slides will be shared here so yours all can be a part of it even if you are on the other site of the world.
Each week one slide will be shown here:

to start with

 

It is a photo from Almond blossom with the reflection of the Almond tree in the raindrop.
You might recognise the words.

BackGround

Something a bit different.

In the progress of making a slideshow for the exhibition, sort of powerpoint. The slides are made with photos and text and at times there is a need for some neutral background instead of blinding white.

SO

The camera became a paintbrush with at times good results even from the 230 shots just 5 are suitable.
