My Backyard

Lametta

Spontaneous filmmaking. Me and my lover, a super 8 camera, a TriX film, very bad German winter weather, a village, no people around, just one dog called „Bine“ (Biene = Bee) … some pun about merde and la merde and lametta … a tripod, no wind, good mood, a field full of fallen winter apples that I collected and used later for developing this very film.

And I must say: when I go out filming I make the experience that almost never there’s anybody feeling offended – could be because super 8 cameras look very much like toy cameras, could be because I smile, could be because I don’t come around with an army of a crew … I don’t know … well anyway that lovely old lady just popped out of her cozy house, smiled at the scenery and popped in again. Loved her.

Here’s the film >> X

Our Darkroom

I am happy. I am analog. I share a darkroom with my brother. We de-dust enlargers, trays, tanks, we tinker darkening panels for the windows. We start to work. Pictures, films, papers, regular and eco developing experiments, red light, orange light, nice smell and beauty. Winter is not that frightening any more.

0,1

OK folks, I’m really pissed now, I’d have never thought that it would come to Berlin, to Kreuzberg: a TINY glass of wine! Normally you get 0,2 liters and it costs whatever … from 3,50 to 8 € which is all ok depending on the quality of wine and location … but today I had the choice between 0,1 and 0,5. I asked the young nice barman what if I am thirsty and would like to have 0,2 and he answered: then I’ll bring you 0,1 twice and you will have clean glasses each time!
Well stick your clean glasses wherever you like but 0,1 is just ridiculous! I don’t need homeopathic portions, I need a genuine old fashioned portion, I need something in my hands, I need something that I can rely on.

Plus … now it’s getting really oberspiessig (square / suburban): their glasses have EICHSTRICHE! I can’t believe it! A white mark on the glass saying this is 0,1 liter and don’t go beyond! Don’t step into the land of plenty! Don’t exaggerate! Don’t drink full pleasure!

500 Kate Bushes

It’s already 3 weeks ago but I still have a crazy smile on my red lips when I think back … „The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever“!!
Women, men and some children disguised themselves as Kate Bush (like she was in her very first video clip performing Wuthering Heights in 1978), meeting on a picnic at Berlin Tempelhofer Feld and … dancing like her! In a crowd, in a kind of flashmob. Mass experience. Wow, that was pure fun and a celebration of beautiful silliness as well as open admiration for an extreme beautiful and touching ever-green song and a cool and picturesque choreography!
Here’s the event on Facebook.
