Hit the spot



July 11th 2015

Had the opening ceremony for Hemel en aarde tussen de rivieren this morning.  Our exhibition is presented as part of a triptich named Wat mij heilig is - inspired art in the Sint Maartens-church. Also on show are icons and paintings inspired by saints. For our show, it all came together: listening chairs, touch-screen, cloothy trees, posters . We drew quite a crowd! Pic is Pastor Alphonse Tshuma posing with his poster. Pic below is one of the readers in a listening chair, listening to the sound of her own  [.....]

Sampled



January 19th 2016

This is Pretoria Zoo - I went there the day after seeing zebra in the wild - quite a contrast. In the background is the CBD, the Central Business District that could have been the heart of Pretoria, but has become a danger zone. The whole concept of public space is different here - houses are walled and gated, and the streets are not to be walked in. City is more a network of specific destinations than a whole that hangs together and can be sampled  [.....]

This is Galaxy being sprayed with flame retardant. A must-do for the show at Atrium end of Oct. http://t.co/q8f6wUWjXM Receipe for flame retardant from http://www.ehow.com/how_7833023_homemade-fire-retardant-chemicals.html Hey: I figured out how to post my Tweets (=new hobby) to my blog. Thanks be given to the developers of Social and Twitter Tools plugins! Now I need to figure out a way to grab the Twitter image and do some Timthumb magic on it ... Later: figured out a way. It's manual, though .....  Need to rethink my strategy vs the Twitter  [.....]

Serpentined



July 29th 2017

It is no wonder that water, stone and then plants are the inspiration for gardeners here. We did the Route des Cretes between Cassis and La Ciotad, a serpentine road with stunning views. Then went to Parc du Mogul, which has a pretty beach and picknick area. As a garden it is a little underwhelming - must be better in spring when there are more flowers. Anyway, we had a good time then serpentined our way back to Apt.  [.....]
