For almost four months this summer the river Emscher is an outdoor exhibition space. There are about twenty artworks and installations along the river, which runs through several cities in the Ruhr area. Today I finally managed to ride my bike to two of these projects: Kunstpause and Zur kleinen Weile.
(I’m really wondering when I will ever take a photo with a real camera again.)
In August I went to see two tiny, local, and very beautiful concerts (Ben Hermanski, Call Me Mary (no, there are no photos of those guys – I just wanted to make sure to write this down, so when they become famous I can say “I already listened to them ages ago!”), watched the sunset from top of a landfill (which is not in use anymore and is actually more like a nice mountain with a great view (but doesn’t landfill sound so much cooler?)) and wore a helmet to attend an art installation.
As usual, the latest photos from my VSCO grid. Last month I spent a few days in a very creepy – yet photogenic – house in the Sauerland (a region that feels like time travelling to the 80s).
Last month I went to a Skunk Anansie concert (16 years after seeing them for the first time), apparently had a thing for walls, and was fascinated by light.
I went to Berlin and hardly took any photos. Instead I went to see the Stephen Shore retrospective at c/o Berlin which was pretty amazing.
Most of these photos are from a trip to Frankfurt. You can read about it here (in German).
March! Finally it’s still light outside when I come from work, I got a new phone (which means new camera for the VSCO photos), and I looked out of and into windows a lot.
February 2016. Not a single blog post. Only six photos in my VSCO grid. I hope this doesn’t set the example for the rest of the year.
The photos I posted to my VSCO grid in January. There’s sad flowers, stuffed animals and a tiny bit of snow. (Way too tiny. I want more!)
Happy New Year!
I’m planning to post monthly VSCO roundups this year, so I have to get rid of the last batch from 2015. (Piglets!)
