When Humboldt could finally do his trip to Central Asia, the English rulers didn’t allow him to enter India…
Probably this was because he didn’t remain silent when he saw the conditions of life and work in America. The English government didn’t want Humboldt to speak about the life conditions of the natives in India under British rule….
Looking at our current society the gap between classes gets bigger. Don’t mind the gap one would prefer to the Londonian contrast, and shout instead: mind the corners. We already had the corner issue a bit when talking about Beuys. There is nowadays more to it. People know today the 2d program Excel from Microsoft most naturally. But of course, even the German dictionary has no knowledge of the word ‘Ixel’. This is a term widely used among German construction professionals in order to name the corner (wall/wall/ceiling) of a room, i.e. a clear 3d term.
To go to the corner of the society means also to be aware of minorities.
What is in the focus of your attention? Often, a corner needs to be destroyed in order to become aware of its necessity.
Often, when you look at sculptures, artists and craftsmen alike, prefer to use material that seems to ‘last’ like bronze or stone…
When we see how a stream of lava melts stone, we may grasp what the Earth thinks about such idea / concept.
Everything is subject to change. (Beside the four laws of the universe).
Imagine to go through a desert (perhaps not any desert, but the that links Africa and Eurasia and from where the scripture religions Judaism, Christians and Islam stem) when a sandstorm hits the way you are walking on. You learned from locals how to shelter yourself in order to survive this. Still it is an uncertain waiting time, and you can’t move, just sit still. Layers of thought and feeling fall, one after the other. You get lighter, you are able to feel your surroundings, to become the desert. When you are at this point that you identify or cannot separate anymore yourself from the sand around you, the noise of the storm slowly gives way to the silence, and you exit your shelter. The storm has changed the landscape.
An entrance to a cave that wasn’t visible before, now became apparent. In the cave, you find a stack of old parchment rolled into earth tubes. Retrospectively, researchers attributed your findings to the gospel or evangelical writing of St. Thomas.
How can we navigate, create, destruct and construct in space?
Is it by reading old scriptures? Is your emotional guidance system your base of your life’s navigation? If green is a good color to express life on Earth, would it feel right to focus on just that? Are numbers your favorite navigational system?
Und wie sehen die Ixel in Ihren Räumen aus?
