STROLL THROUGH WILD STREET-COLORS

Each place carries a history and tale untold which needs to be revealed and spread again. Rapidly the first syllables are being uttered by an archaic reflex leading to further mysterious signs and riddles at the next street-corner. When moving simply forward on these hazy paths of color a quaint monument can be reached at the vague horizon eventually.

WAVES WILL ARISE ON SILENT WATERS

It is fascinating that water meant always more for mankind than just a fluid in order to satisfy our thirst, it can also be regarded as a magic agent substantial for life. These murals inspired by the famous picture The Great Wave by Katsushika Hokusai passed my way on the wall of an empty neglected house at the old town of Lublin / Poland in spring 2015.

INUIT STONECUTS


“Raven’s Domain” by Mayoreak Ashoona
Stonecut, Nunavut, 1995

The land of the Inuit is called Nunavut, this term means simply our home-land which stretches over a big arctic territory in the North of Canada. In the old Inuit mythology the raven was seen as creator of the entire world and all living beings with beats of his wings. He also had the power of both a man and a bird, and could change easily from one to the other simply by pulling his beak over his head as one lifts a mask. According their tradition the first human being was born from a pea-pod plant, because the raven also filled the land with growing pea-pod plants, and when after some time one of the pea-pods burst open, out popped a fully grown human being, the first to walk around raven’s earth.

LATE SUMMER MIRRORINGS

What is nowadays more touching and impressing, a reflective artwork swimming on an apart lake and becoming part of nature or the fluid mirror image of a tree transforming to a fragile visual sculpture being only changed by cool waves and smooth breezes? 

Although these pictures show a lot of water we are still waiting for some real rain now for six months here in Central-Europe. The summer started by mid of April and has not ended so far till today making it really easy to stroll around such eye-minded finds.

WHEN TWILIGHT TOUCHES US BY GÜNTER SPECHT

DRAWINGS AND WORD ACROBATIC

Do you also breed crayons in your mind
to sell them to the market?
I did it when being a child.

Dramatize your daily life,
the smallest at the beginning,
freedom as a goal.

Victory is a mere question of willingness

When the city sleeps, oblivion sweeps the streets.

The thoughtless word

God’s goodness is limitless, you assholes, just keep that in mind.

The 4 enraged citizens.

Pegasus lilli lalli

The Master of the exact metaphors

He fondly remembers a certain time
when sitting at the breakfast table
together with bear, fox and mice
to share everything even comfort
that healed all rather quickly.

CHALLENGING HABITS AND EMPOWERING YOUTH BY JULIA BENTZ

Our world is becoming warmer and climate change poses great risk to natural and social systems. Both human and non-human species are vulnerable. Dealing with it as a technical problem that can be addressed through greater knowledge, know-how, innovation and expertise, has not led to the substantial changes needed to address this challenge.

 

Art and creative practices have the potential to challenge current thinking on climate change by presenting new ways of approaching complex problems. Artists are often at the forefront of innovation, addressing problems in novel ways free from disciplinary constraints. Art has the capacity to not only raise awareness but also use creativity in addressing complex issues, encouraging reflection and acting as a conduit for cultural renewal. …..
