Glass mail tube "flessenpost" by Zus&ik

.
I wish I could blow that little glass tube as if it was a whistle to bring you back to life,
thank you so much that I could enjoy while watching and studying you... and holding you shortly in your Long Silence.

ZIE je ik hou van je, 
ik vin je zoo lief en zoo licht -- 
je kraaloogjes waren vol licht, 
ik hou van je, ik hou van je.
En je snavel en dat rugveertje en je hoofd 
en je oogen en je buik waar 
je donsjes zit en je teen 
met je nageltje er aan.
Zie je ik wou graag zijn een fee, maar het kan niet zijn, 
het licht is om je, je bent 
nu toch wat je eenmaal bent.
O ja, ik hou van je, 
ik hou zoo vrees'lijk van je, 
ik wou het helemaal zeggen -- 
Maar ik kan het toch niet zeggen.

(vrij naar Herman Gorter)

birthday


It was my birthday the other day and I got these nice Collégien slippers which I had on my wishlist for quite some time.  The colour combination is wonderful. So the last couple of days I'm walking through the house with a curved neck and my nose on my shoes - looking a bit strange and being it a bit awkward - but I'm enjoying my slippers to the fullest!! Around the ankles the sock is a bit short, so I advice you to buy the longer sock ones for extremely cold days.

inspiration




Emily Barletta, thread and paper


How does it work, inspiration?
I came across this wonderful work of Emily Barletta. She and I independently came more or less to the same forms.

Dutch sand and woods
my sketches

My form came from studies from Dutch landscape pictures while searching and finding patterns for my ++PLUSTWEE designs. Where did Emily's inspiration come from? Probably not Dutch landscapes?! I think that it's great to have different inspirational sources and end up with more or less the same. It's morphogenetic consciousness or as we say 'it's in the air'...

above: radiolarian, a deep see life form
Of course, these forms are NOT NEW as they are derived from who we are and what we consist of...   which are cells! Cells and especially the deep oceanic life forms interest me a lot lately. I want to make a few screens with cellular forms for printing.
