Everything is connected Part 6

16 okt


The last days I was searching for a new bloggoal. Writing in English is something completely different and sometimes feels as work instead of a flow experience. I started writing in the early morning as a kind of active replacement for meditation inspired by the ‘Morning paper exercise’ by Julia Cameron from het book The Inner Artist. The exercise is simple, every morning the first thing I did was write one page by hand in a book without lines. What I wrote? Just what came to mind and if nothing came I wrote just that. I kept writing till the page was full. Then I teared the page out and burned it. It is an excellent exercise to clear your head of ’to do’ lists or ‘did not do’ lists. I wrote nearly 3 years and never read what I wrote. That changed when I started to blog on January 26 2013, the beginning of my blog experiment. Every day I shared a story about Design Thinging. About empathy, creativity and prototyping. Every day I got out of bed at 6.00 and published before 7.00 Those were the rules of my voluntary attempt to overcome these unnecessary obstacles. Yesterday my new bloggoal became clear. An art journey in 365 days in which I will try to connect the posts based on ‘Ways of Looking’ by Tate Modern.

My last post was about Bruce Nauman’s ‘Untitled’365art_connections-007

Via the object ‘Stairs’ I will connect it with the mysterious 17th century artist Hercules Segers. Here the video for an exhibition in the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum. Narrated by John Malkovich, projected on a 9 meter wide stairs.

Thanks Daniel Doornhein for the tip.
