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

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

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?

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.

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

the beauty being self employed no boss tells you that was not your task, or job description for today nor quality controle

no excuses needed

 

Water

REFLECTION

REFLECTION

 

Last week agenda took an unexpected turn, to the watersite.
Experiments with earth and paper had to make space for boats and water.

 

Promotion material

drops of promo under the tree roots

 

The promotion material for the art markets are made and ready. Water seems to be the subject of last week even in the promotion.
The framed photo is an old photo made in 2003 with my last analoge camera. A filter was used to create a round frame around the photo and of course a black and white film.
It is an amazing tree standing on the edge of Cleddau River in Wales. Once a ferry was going to the other site, now it is left to do what it likes.
The trees here need to deal with, yep, water as it is a tidal river with brackish water. The tides have washed away the soil, creating an amazing sculpture by showing the strong roots from the trees.

Now a new river flows along my home and soon i will float along in a wooden boat up to some Art Markets.
Still had some time to experiment with my camera in making underwater photos.

The result is odd, but gives a ‘Nacra’ shine as if we are looking in the inside of a shell. It is just the reflection of light in water at a certain angle, showing us that light has a bundle of colours.

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.

i can see you

can you see

 

CHAOTIC ORDER

Back to expo thinking, there is no way you can fit a Land Art Forest into a gallery, so forget trying.
The exhibition will contain photos, but how and what keeps floating around in my little idea book.
Where is clear and the room with walls, doors and windows is clear, but the filling and connecting it to the Land Art Forest ……..

Flow

a photo of a photo on a sculpture inside the mind of an avatar

inside water
drops within drop
a drop in the ocean
without a drop no ocean
CHAOTIC ORDER
what we see has become a competition of what it should be

an other invisible flowing drop

When you observe physical entities, with your observation, they changing their character                (Werner Heisenberg)
free from controle of reason
unpredictable
togetherness
expressiveness force
creating an image rather than recording it
don’t see what others want you to see
let water and wind play with it

flow 9

flow 9 it is all in your head

For one expo the photos are selected, the medium is still questionable, only need 5 photos there. These 5 will also be a new card serie.
The cards must sell so selection happens in an other way. My more artistic photos do not sell good enough.
The expo in Portugal will not be for sale, creating more freedom of artistic expression.

Transport is an other issue to consider in the creative progress. Certain ideas dropped of as the small needs to fit inside a suitcase.
Printing a photo on a piece of paper feels not good, gives no expressiveness.
Macro photography seems the opposite of the Land Art Forest of 1 hectare, yet without that small world no forest.
It all starts with one drop.

How to display the beauty of the small to realise the big as we see so little. Our realities alter constantly, so many medias, so many ways.
The budged limits several options, such a pity, the imagination needs no funds but the realisation can’t happen without the dirty word, money.

Somehow some order will appear inside the chaos
one day it will happen
it will all come through
