STRUCTURES ON THE RUN

When gazing through the eternal holes of reality all seems just to be immediately escaping to nowhere. Now face the real urgent need to put again together the pieces which desiring belong to each other since eons in order to stumble over a weird glimpse on the distant horizon vanishing in darkblue fragile stretches of water – our original homeland. 

 

MYSTERIES OF A BACKYARD

SOME BACKYARDS TO BE FOUND ARE COMPLETE STILL-LIFES IN ITSELF WHERE A SURPRISE TO WAIT AT EACH CORNER AND TRACKS OF FORMER INHABITANTS WHO HAVE ALREADY LEFT THIS PLACE LONG TIME AGO.

THE MYSTERIES OF SUCH A PLACE ARE CHALLENGING AND LEAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS WHICH LEAD US TO FURTHER UNCOMMON RIDDLES DEALING ABOUT OBJECTS MONITORING US HERE AT EACH OF THESE AWESOME MOMENTS SPENT WITHIN SUCH AN ENTANGLED YARD.

LOST CITIES IN THE JUNGLE

“In 1519 Hernan Cortez, the great Spanish conquistador stormed and took the city of Mexico-Tenochtitlan. He did not then, and he never knew, that it was built upon the ruins of the Mayan civilization. Five years later he travelled across what is now the little republic of Honduras, hacking his way foot by foot through an almost impenetrable forest given over to reptiles and insects and the odours of putrefaction. Had he turned aside from the path he was cutting, by only a fraction, he would have come to a little stream where he would have found in the midst of all this luxuriant foliage the ruins of what had once been a great city. It was the city of Copan, the chief light amongst others such as Tikal or Palenque of the Mayan civilization which existed between A.D. 176 and A.D. 620. They are still, far from all other human habitations, lost in the powerful tropical forest which like some sylvan boa-constrictor, has literally swallowed them up and is now devouring them at its leisure, prising the finehewn, close-laid stones apart with its writhing roots and tendrils.”

WILD FLOWERS TERMINAL

Nature is unsteady but also very flexible, so these plants here grow on industrial grounds where 100 years ago freight trains have been handled and dispatched day after day. Rusty bridges, rails and other legacies can still be seen around as part of a secondary jungle. This narualistic work in progress means a change every day while at night the interstellare light allows a silent rest and sleeping cycle of life.

With these pictures I am wishing everybody a nice and adventurous  summer!

ISLAND MENTALITY FROM NYC

“Imagine an island not far off the coast of French Polynesia, floating quietly while it absorbs hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars in crypto capital. Idyllic animatronic palms made of stainless steel manufactured in Germany and coated in organic coconut husk waft gently in the breeze, while an underwater generator noiselessly converts salt water to a drinkable resource. A backdrop of impossibly green hills glimmer with solar panels coated in a thin layer of hyper-absorbent algae, courtesy of a Swedish start-up whose CEO lives in a villa nestled into the landscape. Welcome to the future of Seasteading.”  Island Mentality by Alice Bucknell

LEVELLING SURREAL PERSPECTIVES

Approaching colourful inner worlds

Each night dreaming opens multiple gates to a more surreal world.  So what is really real?  For sure,  I do not know exactly but the regularly chaotic cosmic coincidence generator always accompanies and predominates an approach through the imminent walls of cognition.

You go to place for the first time in your life, then all of a sudden the scenery seems so completely familiar, déja vu after very long time in a hidden homeland. Doubt tells quickly that this can not be real, although the basical feeling differs gravely and reassures that this must be true.

Moving into the chaotic space/time

If you make 100 photos of a mountain each photo will look different depending on light, angle of view or season. The real mountain never gets definitely visible,  because even a serial view represents just a small glimpse on the surrounding and more confusing cosmos so we never can be really sure.

Human beings have attempted to design clarifying pictures of this strange ambition for long time in writing or by the arts, that does not lead necessarily to rational or illuminating explanations as the world is not limited to the ordinary reality of our daily-routine.

First step to an imaginary multi-cosmos

These subrealities may be met everywhere when dreamy greediness simply becomes part of life, a strange world without clear fixed rules when accessing a phantastic but also rural space.

Modern science offers the fascinating idea of a multi-cosmos with different laws of nature in each cosmos, a rather amazing, incredible and irritating outlook.
