SPIRAL DROPPING

they stood still for just one moment
looking at what seems to appear odd
one word just one word on
bark red bark with black letters

blogspiralleft1

her eyes filled with question marks
his remark was little
absence of it said

blogspiralleft2

what is the meaning of this she asked
well absence means not there
her mind went wandering

blogspiralleft3

aha she said as question marks 
disappeared from her eyes
with a smile she said

blogspiralleft4

ART she said its ART Johny
as art doesn’t need a meaning
art doesn’t need a reason
Yep she smiled

blogspiralleft5

he said come on lets go now with an ignorance shred
she waited untill he was out of sight
smiled and gave the word a militair salute
no need for meaning
——-

absence of, lays there where it was left
like all the other words froml
the Land Art Poem
which did play shadow on the Spiral
some words have hidden spots
others lays there where all can wonder

there were 54 visitors to the spiral “Red Dot”

just a perfect day by the “Wassende Maan”

once open
open for all eyes
growing beneath our feet
breathing in

february 2021

growing you see
after years
of not seeing
land art will never be finished

walking over

now you can walk it 
without seeing it
to discover inner beauty
it was just a perfect
day

how art creates nature
funded by
forestry committee
on a dutch island
see it HERE

and here is the artist Paul de Kort

art creates art

it was a stressful week
searching for answers
never found
questions
this made it all just perfect still working on the books, started the website, newer skills, capturing photos, writting poetry, you will not find here, only in the books

see you

just a perfect autumn day
searching for photos of the river

To top it all of got the photos for the last 4 pages and the poems for the Photo-Poetry book.

Underwater Poem

an other try

Going back doing an other try, making an other, not.
Sticks stayed, dipper drift, tooooooo much debris, need to do it again.

waiting for an better moment

Sticks saved, put secure.
Waiting for the right weather.

The third try was ships law, 3 times lucky.

 

Line 1 and line 2

 

CONSTANT FLOW OF IMPULSE
ADJUSTING TOWARDS ALTERATION

 

line 3 and 4 and 5

 

BOAT BELLIES
PUSH PERSISTENCE WAVES
READJUSTING WHAT WAS THERE

 

LINE 6 AND LINE 7

 

CONSTANT COMING
PERSISTENT GOING

 

FINAL

Finally the sticks stayed on the beach, not sure for how long.
The work was started at 7 in the morning in all peace without people.
On the way back people started to flow in with whatever they could carry.
The river beaches are a bit of a walk.

The poem will be a part of the Clean Rivers project, this September. What goes into the rivers here can go around many places in the world, even going around the world.
The poem is now in my garden and noting was left in the river, except my footprints, maybe.
The aim is to remind people of the beauty of the spot, without moralising.

Now i need to work on the film a new experience, which will take time.

RIVERSIDE TALKING

slowly moving from silence night to
day Rush
riverside canalised flowing over Bosch denture giving
childhood memos smell of tar mixed with wildrose eglanteria

 

silence

 

daydreaming steering wheel fantasising imaginary
reality hits, river rat, rivergipsy
ship takes where they can’t hit
sounds of water hushing against hulling pressure
wooden shoes on iron decking, rope plopping
lets go where nobody knows
tender memories

 

tender

 

NOW
at riverside waking what was is gone to an other site
seeing in my mind
feet touching water
Egret flies <camera sink <feather touch
hello there look who’s back
riverside
changed sight changed side

 

sight

 

it never stays while flowing away
little capsule herstory
sweet water delta Bosch, sheltering secret hidden
moving out after delta plan, moving over to nature
after
strong minds acting without fist
letting me dream once again

 

after

words don’t hurt anymore
sticks break before they hit
BROKEN GLAS FOR YOU AND ME
horizon is green
my circle round, mind clear, soul flowing
differentiating meanings
Merwede Guadiana Gleddau Hunter Merwede
all flowing in me
better say no more
broken glas for you and me

ANY LANDSCAPE

Actually LandArt can be lots more than ‘a conversation with nature or landscape questioning our relationship with the land and nature’. Or even that wonderful wording of re-order our response to place, landscape or nature. What then? 

Look at this video of Andy Goldsworthy:

The conversation uses little words but what he says sounds the perfect wording for what Land Art might be or could be, if you let it happen. His questioning happens in silence and his response  last perhaps just a day.
The word INTUItion jumps out, something we forget to use, a perception that feels stupid yet creates. He leaves reasoning behind while walking and in a way connecting to wherever he goes.

 An other important wording all landscape. You can create Land Art in any landscape, you will find material to create whatever. Forget about a plan, let it happen while going. The change it will fail doesn’t matter, the change it all fall apart, makes it. The different approaches to each landscape as we all see that landscape different.

The collecting of material found in the landscape plays a central role as well. So come material landscape and intuition together in the creating of Land Art. The Land Art stays in place but vanish with time and some material stay longer than other; leaf against wood, wood against stone.

In the case of the waterfall you see the fallen wood made it possible to make drifting wood, the doodval will stay, while the drifting wood will flow away. Only the photo of the Land Art sells at time you create more for the photo, the pretty picture, than the Land Art, our society demands the selling particle.

Why would you need a long artists statement, why would you need a title?? Land Art speaks for herself.
Land Art not sculpturing nature but connecting culture with nature. A question could you create Land Art in the urban landscape?
Have a look at the video it will make your day or even week.

Soms kom je iets tegen dat je laat zien wat je niet kan zeggen. Deze video zegt zoveel meer over Land Art of landschap kunst dan de vele boeken en tijdschriften die een omschrijving zoeken wat misschien gewoon geen woorden nodig heeft. Andy Goldsworthy    zegt weinig maar de paar woorden die gesproken worden laat heel wat zien over Land Art. Ieder landschap geeft haar eigen geheimen prijs als je er open voor staat. Loop niet door, loop niet over maar ga effe zitten om het tot je door te laten dringen.
Verzamel wat er zoal verspreid ligt en maak Land Art waar je ook bent. In Nederland vind je veel het stedelijke landschap maar ook hier kan je Land Art maken. Een uitdaging voor de volgende weken.

 

Aim Doel

The ultimate aim of the Land Art Bos Association is to plant several forests in the shape of a Spiral.
The forests not only function as a place to make Land Art but most of all the forest will be Refugia for nature.

blog2dropreflection

An Association stands strong with the number of members it has, therefor the first thing is to ask people to become a member of the Land Art Bos Association LABA.
For now there are no costs involved just your name and contact details.

blog2klover

 

When we have the numbers it will become more easy to find a piece of land, to find a person or organisation willing to make land available for the planting of the forest.

As a member you not only get regular updates but also can be involved in other Land Art  activities.
Like a football club provide for their members the opportunity to play football, we will ‘play’ Land Art.
