AURA POWDER (of) OZ…

ART LIFE, INSIGHT

I was searching for light and got lost in the fog…

I presaged some darkness and thus lost my love.

This is the law of attraction, my law with affection.

This is why I started writing this blog.

And this is why I stopped for a long time.

This is why I left home 18 years ago.

This is why I returned home 18 years later.

9 years ago (right in the middle) I wrote my Schriftbild #4.

In entangling, rewinding and recalling spirals it says:

*what is past?*

*what is present?*

*what is future?*

*is all progress? all is progress.*

*is all change? all is change.*

*is all repetition? all is repetition.*

18 years ago I was wondering how in the world I could ever live on without my love…

9 years ago I was thinking about mankind and history.  I was wondering about how people could ever end up in something like war … and I presaged that they will do it again and again as they are and have always been just men.

Quite obviously we do not learn from history, from conscience or from knowlegde.

Same with my self: I develop, I advance, I proceed, I fail. I change. I start.

Everything rewrites IT SELF. It is ALL part of ONE circle.

There is no opposite and no seperate.

Darkness, fog and light, all in between moods and colours of life.

I am water. I am floating. In all different shapes and conditions.

I lost one stone and put one on top of the other.

One month ago Schriftbild #4 finally got a frame.

It is now ready to be properly shown or archived.

What a timing.

Today I am…

Repeating, recalling, rewriting the Vedas.

Repeating, recalling, rewriting myself.

Revisiting the Oak Tree I knew as a child and she remembers me well.

The Buzzard sends me his healing-feathers and wisdom-calls of change.

And after a timehole-moment of self-doubt and fog-head my heart is still broken,

but my hand is in progress and as she is – I am…

…In Silence and Peace.

This is why I do my art, my love.

Kefalonia is not an Island.

She is a person.

Named after Cephalus.

This is what she looks like and this is what she feels like.

She is a wild and angry person and not only that…

She is transforming love and pain constantly.

Last year I came here to speak to the Ocean and its inhabitants, mainly the dolphins and turtles that I hoped could read my watery letters which I sent every single day. I wanted them, as in former times, to come back and show up at the coasts of this island, so people would be reminded how beautiful these related creatures are and might learn to appreciate instead of harming them.

In the end, I did not see a single dolphin, BUT: Finally we heard them singing at night.

My favourite beach is called Avythos. As it is the closest I can walk there easily. But also I fell in love with its wild beauty and the view it shares on Theos Island.

This beach changes depending on the weather and even each single day and time.

Last year at this time, the beach was full of stones. With ist bizzare huge rocks that had been thrown into the sea by earthquakes, it had this mysterious atmosphere of a Stone Desert right by the Sea.

I was so happy to observe that turtles would come there at night to secretely leave their eggs on Avythos which were then protected by the kefalonian people.

This year I find my beach full of sand, I cannot find my precious stones of which I was intending to once again built an energy rising Spiral for my project.

I start to clean the beach instead. What I find are tonnes of plastic, iron, styropor, cans.

It becomes more depressing when you start collecting shoes, doll arms, barbed wire and clothes and in the end, when you dig deeper, you finally recognise that about half of the sand exists of tiny partcicles of human-made poison and start realizing that we carry these particles, too. That´s probably why we do not even dare to think about our ocean´s inhabitants any more. More than 90 % are gone anyway.

Not to think about this is a crime, though. It is murder. We are killing constantly.

I cannot carry all this. It is a single beach and I would need a lorry. So I will have to play Sisyphos, collect it and every time I get there carry it closer to civilization hoping some people will open their eyes and hearts and help. But even if I do…

What this garbage tells you …

…a sensitive being can hardly bare.

Last year Avythos was full of turtle nests.

Two days ago I did not find ONE.

I found something else.

A huge dead Loggerhead.

She had made it to this beach for decades

and this time she had died when giving birth.

The Island and my heart suffer from many tiny earthquakes.

My dolphin friends will not come again.

Together with the sand and this turtle they tell you the story of humans drilling for oil.

They are selling their souls and they are digging their own children´s graves.

Kefalonia is not an Island.

She is a wild and angry person and not only that…

These days she is sad.

And I am crying with her as I am a tiny part of this.

APOCALYPSE PERCEPTION 0

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, ART LIFE, VISION

OPEN CALL

APO_1

The Ionion Center for the Arts and Cultures and A P O are calling Professional Creators to think about the words forming the title of this project and produce serious output based on reason and intuition both equally used to awaken solutions concerning our future.

Apocalypse is what we are driven to perceive when we consume daily news. Confusion and resignation seem to follow informational overflow, highly specialized subject, materialism and the loss of intuitive trust.

Perception as the ability to see, hear or become aware of something through the senses, the way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted and our personal insight will include and question the knowledge each of us has gained so far as well as train our forgotten intrinsic senses in order to unite and balance questions and answers concerning a better World.

Zero: neither positive nor negative. Number. Start. Begin. Circle. Unity. Nothing. Emptiness. Objectivity…

Plato´s Politeia known as one the first books that influenced western society and still unsure of its perception as either utopian idea or actual plan for a state will be our Point Zero. Questioning how we could read between the lines and translate it to our time and needs, a non-defined hollistic collective for planet-protective and positive perspectives will be our goal.

With the Sea below, the Gods behind and the Universe above we will reconnect to outer and inner nature and work on experimenting and manifesting what each of us as an individual and in a group can contribute concerning our actual time and world.

The City of Athens and the Island of Kefalonia with abandoned or still alive historical Sites are waiting to be inhabited by new Ideas. We will work on thinking models,  and deeply listen to each other,  perform an energy-rising ritual on the Island of Theos and finally document and show what we have learnt from nature, intuition and from uniting our powers in an Exhibition including readings, a concert, film screenings and Visual Art.

Where?  City of Athens and Island of Kefalonia, GREECE

When?   June-September 2017

AND:

May 30th June 6th in collaboration with Harrison Farina & the project

ALL PARTICIPATION OBLIGATION

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, ART LIFE, VISION

Outside Pluto Activation.

Old and new Visions towards an Abundant Peaceful Outersystem:

For an Experiment starting next week I will spend a period of time in the Artspace Outside Pluto and invite people that are interested in testing opportunities to share some time with me in order to feel, learn and collect not only more reasonable knowledge but also certain kinds of rituals to become aware of oneself and independent in the world outside.

ANSAMMLUNG PARALLELER OBJEKTIVITÄTEN

The space itself will fill from day to day by body and mind, raise positive energy that slowly transforms into art, to move closer towards each other as well as towards a better and holistic understanding of the world inside ourselves and the world we are part of.

Outside will be Neukölln, further outside Berlin, further outside Germany, further outside Europe….Inside will be collected what we find revealed during this time….Outside Pluto.

For the experiment I will be absolutely passive considering any kind of daily news or matter and leave the world outside wishing to actively search inside what I might find motivating or enlightening when I go outside again or even further.

The experiment is timeless and free from any kind of serious obligation or system.

The only kind of obligation lies in active participation of the individuals concern to develop strategies and routines towards open mind, humanness, earth and what we call ALL.

June to September. 2016

I am in Kefalonia.

My senses are wide open.

This island is communicating a lot.

I am dreaming, feeling, hearing, seeing, experiencing a lot.

I am corresponding to the Ocean and the Ocean is corresponding to me. Every single day.

I am reconnecting to Nature. I am hardly spending money. I am out of any system.

I was sent here by universe and I am grateful and happy in dignity.

I have met many brothers and sisters in heart and soul.

I am in Love.

I am in Peace.

I create.

I thrive.

I trust.

I give.

I receive.

I am Nature.

My body is the Earth.

My soul is the Universe.

My thoughts are the Space.

ANGEL PASSES OVER

AN ARTISTS REALITY, ART LIFE, INSIGHT

Summer 2012

I have just finished an installation including a drawing on the wall repetiting one of Hölderlin ́s sentences „There live sun and air and earth and their children extraneous around one another, these lonesomes, as if they didn ́t belong each other.” The wall is facing some stacks of handtorn empty papersheets that were filled by time and thought and include old books with titles that could tell everything and nothing (such as „Beauty“, „Philosophy“, „Greek“, „Nostradamus“, „Healing Methods“…) but won ́t help against the feeling that Hölderlin was having more than 200 years before me having it.

After a few months of working and thinking in isolation I sit down and light a candle. At 00:00 o a huge bat comes flying through my atelier window. It surrounds the installation, it is a mystical moment, first thrilling and then calming, adoring this creature flying in perfect circles. At 00:05 it leaves through the window again. The next day one of the stacks –Philosophy- has fallen apart. What could this tell? Is this my art falling apart? Is it Philosophy falling apart? Is it my world falling apart?

I don ́t know. I have many questions. I have no answers. However, one year after the bat, I quit my old life by leaving everything behind that I had tried to believe in. I started to learn how to convert energy.

I read about power animals two years later. Old Shamans believe: If a bat comes into your life, it will change your thinking and question the life you are living right now.

I am sharing with you some very private insights in the next posts. I try not to feel ashamed about it as this is obviously part of testing my own personal borders and the words I have posted so far.

I am not a writer. I am a visual Artist and quite honestly feel a bit uncomfortable in the roll of a blogger. Friends are writing to me telling about they would like to share something but do not know what they could give or they first need to see what comes out of this. I cannot offer or answer you anything yet, I am inviting you to play along…I can open myself a bit more, maybe these insights make you understand what I mean by:  trust your intuiton and follow your own path…but more important: This Atomic Platonic Orchestra is not about me. It is about creating a platform and unite our powers for first creating a collective/collecting platform which later can grow into a Hollistic-Workshop-Conference-Exhibition.

The Artist shall create or show art. The Philosopher shall create or pose thoughts and questions, The Poet shall write or read, The Musician shall play his music…Everyone shall speak in his own language of his own field and interest.

I believe if we all share one dream of one humanity, live what is chosen by heart and approved by our free will and whole intellect we can create a system that suites us instead of adapting to a system that is not fitting us. And I believe we must not fight for that. We will be soft and open. We will be honest and peaceful. We will be sensitive and vulnerable. We will be awake and clear.

ALLIANCE PROSPEROUS OPENMIND

ABUNDANT PEACEFUL OUTERSYSTEM, ART LIFE, VISION

IF YOU WERE INVITED ON AN ISLAND…

WHAT WOULD YOU LEAVE BEHIND AND WHAT WOULD YOU TAKE WITH YOU?

WHAT DO YOU REALLY NEED? WHAT KIND OF SOCIETY WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE PART OF AND HOW WOULD YOU LIKE FINDING YOURSELF CONTRIBUTING TO IT ?

DO NOT QUESTION IF THIS IS POSSIBLE.

THE MIND IS THE HUMANS MOST POWERFUL TOOL.

WE ARE CREATORS BY MIND AND ALL SOCIETIES HAVE BEEN BUILT UPON UTOPIES.

FOR THE PAST WE WILL NOT BELIEVE THE HISTORY BOOKS BUT OUR INTUITION.

FOR THE PRESENT WE WILL QUESTION MIND AND BODY WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED AND BELIEVED, WHAT WE STILL PERCEIVE AS TRUTH AND WHAT WE FIND OBSOLETE AT THIS HONEST MOMENT.

FOR THE FUTURE WE WILL TRY TO REACTIVATE OUR FORGOTTEN INTRINSIC SENSES.

THE A P O IS A PLAYGROUND FOR GROWN-UP KIDS THAT STILL LOVE TO PLAY AND HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.

IT CAN BE OUR ALLIANCE PROSPEROUS OPENMIND TO START WITH.
