I shot some black and white film and I feel like getting another view of the things I know so well. Is it the concentration on the form? Perhaps.
Another aesthetic question I'm thinking about recently, is a sentence from my teacher of the water class.She said that in the best case the topic and the form of a piece of art (painting, poem, anything..) are identic. Is this the golden rule? Is this always right at all?
I've told you, that I'm making a class about water. It's over now. Our last topic was Undine, a water nymph. We did read a fairy tale from Friedrich de la Motte Fouque about her and a short story from Ingeborg Bachmann. The character of Undine was, with all the difference the stories have of course, always a symbol for the uncertain and uncalculable in live. And that's in both stories the reason why the relationship between Undine and the beloved man doesn't work. The water subject fascinates me for a long time now and my next bigger project when we have finished our power lines zine will be a picture book or zine about water. Already started working on it :)
These are pics from late Sunday afternoon. We were at konsumat, a bar here in Pforzheim, that is as well shop for design objects and clothes and upstairs a room for exhibitions - a very nice place to be.
After we had our coffees and the children their hot chocolates we went for a little walk in a magical evening sun. A wonderful forest nearby with enchanted water.
