MANY MINDS CONCERN IS OCEAN

young and brilliant and concerned. contemporary developers are putting the ocean in focus

humanity is creating constant and various forms of pollution

the ocean is suffering

some have come up with ways to recycle, some have started to raise awareness

Foto 4 the team around Protei.org is investigating how to sense and clean the ocean. for the removal of oil spills after Bp’s Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010, prototypes of robotic drones have been envisioned- unmanned, affordable, green and unsinkable in theory. the project grew into a thinktank community experimenting with an open source hardware. sharing step-by-step results on their website, the organisation attracts new crew members to invest in a vision

in the meantime boyan slat is applying pragmatism and innovation to aid new ways of plastic waste removal

Foto 5   after coming up with a concept of floating booms filtering the water for plastic waste (to be trayed in waste processors fixed to the sea bed), the feasability of the realisation of this project is being studied precisely. his call for brain power as well as funds has received a lot of attention recently

the more innovative projects are being discussed, the more alternatives are in sight. for those who are working on solutions -investing thought, creativity and practical thinking into the handeling of our environment – support is crucial. afterall its not about keeping the planet alive only

SEE YOU WHEN YOU GET THERE, SELF TRANSPORTATION IN THE AGE OF FINE PAVEMENTS

our walking experience has been put into question Foto 3Foto 5

surface considerations to wear, to walk on, to experience.  how to enrich our walking experience? the following examples are pointing out ways for play:  re-designed pathways and footware are on the market

whether its for posture or feel the shoe industry has caught up on the people’s behavioural lack of exercise and movement, suggesting to combine the daily with the useful. the futuristic products are set for form to result in function and are widely available by now.

the benefits described by the brands are evident, but if consideration and care for ones own body is inspired by it, so it be, its successfully raising some awareness

Foto 2Foto 4  playing upon human conditioning and pushing for ways to re think urban planning  recent cases of architectual propositions point a finger on important considerations concerning daily paths and general challenges of self transportation

atelier zündel cristea  won the 3rd prize in a competition for yet another bridge for paris’ seine. their inflatable construct consists of tubes in crossings and trampoline circles to bounce ahead

meanwhile in the nikola lenivets forest in russia, the annual festival archstoyanie  presents a 50 meter long trampoline road cutting through the nature. the installation is designed by the estonian architects salto who ironically called their rubber pathway ‘fast track’  and describe it as  ‘an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.’

rethinking infrastructure                                         western world can afford this

can we arrive at a different point using other means then pavements ? it feels spoiled to be surpassing the functional asphalt road due to philosophical questions

yet these designs are really meant for a public- whether to be crossing the seine or a forest its initially about altering our physical sensation and conceptual flexibility- which is needed due to the dangers of comfort driven stagnation

what are roads, how do i behave on roads..how would i behave on trampolines, can i bounce at all etc etc

surely no insurance company would cover this,but one realised project of that sort manages to raise a point by giving it a try in humble seclusion- for now only to be experienced in an art context

a beautiful pregnant soulful girl and a beautiful boy featuring it all via video, following up the given

coordinating, capturing and appearing

they are seen in the nature, in circumstance of survival and down to basics

she is awaiting a child, they are building future

the pretext of this transmissional action seems to be love and conviction

Vida de pajaros is

‘A Real story of how we left the city for going Back to the Nature and to discover that we are already Angels

We are living a Love story, Science Fiction, Adventure, Fantasy, Action, Drama and Documentary also ‘

the city is where they dont want to be. it feels dull and repressed, the cycle of things

‘We see Puppets, We were Puppets, thats the Magic of this Story, Estrellita was a StripTease Dancer, I was a Rock Star… now we are Heros, Adventurers in Love, Rainbow Warriors… now We Are Fantasy, “Poor”, Nomads, Dreamers, Artists.’

one year ago they have met on la palma, canarie islands spain and have been travelling together since

seen in brazil and in argentina, they currently reside in chech republic awaiting the child

are moving images of the daily, not without hardship, situations that are tangeable and that are speaking of intimacy

through this documentation, in times where it seems that dreams are forgotten, they say :

DREAM Brother, DREAM Sister, because we have the Same Dream’ one has to express it… to Make It Real.

sharing beauty, their love and spirit that they feel is young, happy, energetic- feeling alive and feeling that the love grows with the baby

a lot of magic is happening, they are making it part of their lifes

 

the internet provides a platform and the machine becomes more human through exchange. letters are reaching them, empowerement is created, people are writing in appreciation. anything can be said, as long as its said

its a personal journey connecting to the elements and to an audience

for the two being in love, although it doesnt need to be in love with a person, being in a natural environment

as well as eating naturally, and living naturally (with out the millon rules of the cities) is the key to be free

Foto 2

videos by them, consumed from a computer, is like an other world speaking, travelling wires to enter us

to make this happen, all lands, all dunes and jungles are crossed with photographic equippement

this magical journey is bound to revisit internet in town on regular intervals. but already its felt that

‘ This Way to Create can End Soon… We are heading to the Real, and maybe i Will Be Tired of this Screen’
