sedition

tear

sedition

silence tears fall down her face leaving a trailed salted crystals
no sounds no sob no shaking shoulders her face deadly still

teardrops trincle down while darkness surrounds her
feathers from dead ducks support her head, getting slowly wet

woollen weight from perhaps walking sheeps suppress her into bed
eyes wide open leaving flowing tears out like rising tide

 midnight blue skylight sprinkle her face through plastic windows
legs stretch out door open into well known surrounding

rise

pyjam trousers soaks up tearing morning dew
streaming river cobble at edge kissing bare feet

released to feel, see, hear tender beauty entering morning seal
words try to push out sinking emotion deem well known answers

first feathery touch leaves sheltered leafs turn above head
shouts wake up all the rest with revolt reddening light

sun appears above hill line enlightening all water drops onto blood coral beads

tomorrow she must leave what holds her so dear

the why creates sedition where can silent tears find that courage

 

any government during any time in any place does the same
declaring this kind of living illegal
giving the people hell
so others can spend their money
so i will walk against the government any government who
destroys what is so dear to me
showing my photos while walking

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.

Creating Photos

Creating photos

Many say  ‘don’t take a photo create a photo’

The camera limitations made me to have to create photos. The use of pictureTalk, what do you want to say with your pictures, creates photos.

under the try-pot

The photography becomes a daily venture, a daily learning of picturesque. Your point of view altering every time you look.

The path took me back to the past, my early childhood years there were i learned to ice-skate. The roads were now so small compare to my childhood vision but the trees had grown. Only when you stop, only when you slow down you start to see what once was.

people always smile when my pictures are created as i lay close to the water surface and only the small camera can be there with me. The professional cameras will drop and drown, giving a very frustrated image. How can you place a trypote in the water close enough to the water surface. Than how can you take the moving leaf while standing solid on 3 legs.

So the photos are created with a simple camera which i can hold very still in my hand just above the water surface. The camera can be moved easy flowing with the floating leaf, perfect you would say.

Yep , but, the quality of the photo is such that it can’t be printed  more than A3 and even than you see the pixels appear. SO, no photo program like photoshop or others will be able to overcome this by creating pixels, it can’t add on. The idea came to create even further a photo by using software, research shows some spectacle results of double exposure making one photo with several photos. OK That goes well over my head. Photoshop is a very complicated program which takes a long time learning but i have an old desktop publishing program with which i have created many leaflets, business cards, books and posters.

You can create layer over layer not giving the same effect as double exposure, still giving the possibility to create one photo  with several photos and even better giving the possibility of collage.

The way to print on A3 without loosing any pixels. After lots of experimenting, the final cut has come. Using several photos i took while laying and standing there were i learned iceskating, perhaps the place where my love for nature started. 

See you

SLIDE 5 AND 6

What to prove
by
planting a tree
How to perceive beyond
the green

sixty centimetres
noting more
skinny being in cracked soil

 slight different angle
aspects turned around
to breath
more than sound
when growth outmined viewpoint
against the wind
inside that intersection of no belief

 

slide5Trees

Slide 5 PLANTING TREES

 

Its all done before
and
it will be done again
to form a pattern
close a circle

tree will outgrow you and me
to leave something, we can’t reach
telling stories nobody reads

time will tell
how we feel
interactive transgression
meaning of nature to clean
that what we leave in a leaf
the counter weight of transactions
showing an image  not made by hand

slide 6 other artists

 

to shake it all again
not so sure about the name
as what is in the name of ART
more than poverty over brain
what is it worth
for YOU?

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.

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.

OK this is not what was expected but what the eyes see the camera shall capture
