I See Things In Wooden Walls

This shack that have I lived in more than 4 weeks has wooden walls made of these – I don’t know what it’s called – pressed wooden pieces … and I see people and monsters and animals and scenes and … so much, I will make it a project, wait and see!

This here: a long haired woman reading a newspaper.

More Pinhole Pics

My last week at Brunåkra … thanks to Corona I will not be able to take, as planned, the train back home via Denmark, but there is a ferry that goes from Trelleborg (South Sweden, not so far away from here) to Rostock, and then I can take the train back to Berlin. Saturday.
I am taking the last pinhole photos, look:

Four Fingers

All comic characters have only four fingers. Makes it easier to draw them (only god of The Simpsons has five!).
I found a comic glove on the shore!

Twin Trees

There is a kind of small alley that leads up from the street to www.brunakra.com, my residency until end of April here in Skåne, South Sweden. The entrance is marked by two majestic big old trees (now still unleafed), they fascinate me, they are twins … sisters … pals … lovers … and they look just wonderful negative as well as positive!!!

Me In My Studio In South Sweden

This is me at www.brunakra.com … until when? Probably mid April. Can’t take the train through Denmark back home. But there’s a ferry from Trelleborg going to Rostock that is still running … swimming … every day. At the moment.

Fluffy Chicken

I am fascinated by the chickens that run around freely here. Always in a flock. They wear their feathers in a fluffy style, they are old, fearless and very relaxed. Don’t lay eggs any more. Just enjoy the day.

Inside

It is so stormy today, grey and cold, that I don’t really feel like going outside, so I just stay inside and make a film about it …

Live Film Developing Performance Outside!

We set up a table and a laptop to stream the whole performance on Google-Meet, being in contact with 26 people all over … Sweden, I guess, and some visitors from farther away!

I developed a b&w super 8 film as usual in something weird, this time: sugarbeet tea!
It was fun to do it live, explain what I was doing and why it worked and communicating with the other world!!! HERE is a little 4 minute snippet on vimeo!!!

Pinhole Photos Inside

What a stormy, brilliant, icecold, crisp day it is! I better stay inside … and do some long time exposure pinhole photos with my two favourite cameras: Illy and Spicecam. 1 hour / 2 hours exposure.

A Glowing Row Of Trees

… I pass them almost every day. And every day it seems they become a tiny little bit more orange-red … Juice is climbing up their veins and make the twigs glow!!

Beautiful Chicken

These chicken here at my residency look happy, they run around (always together) all day, explore garden and field, and they look nice aufgeplustert, featherish, healthy, coloured, beautiful!!

Blurred Horse

This is my favourite pinhole negative of the day. Find the horse!

Sea Bench

I found my favourite bench. At the sea, surrounded by flowers that are just about to open their little buds. Almost no people around … maybe it’s mostly summer houses here, not yet opened for the season.
Anyway: I’ll be back. It’s calling for a sea film.

Day 7

Every day a pinhole photo.
Can you see what number 7 is?

Sugarbeet Soup

I am surrounded by sugarbeet fields, so it is pretty obvious that I steal some and make a developer!
I chopped them (more leaves than roots this time of year of course) and boiled them for some time, then let the soup cool down to 32°, took the leaves and stuff out, added vitamin c and washing soda and developed a super 8 test stripe!
The result? Great! Good contrasts!
The smell? Like horseradish / Meerrettich. Yum!

Equinox

Bye winter, hi spring!
The days are getting longer!
And my shadow, too!

Torsk

I have it quite good here in my artist‘s exile … starting to draw fish, eating healthy food, watching sprouts grow, watching the sky (and now the stars and the illuminated church across the field). Did you know that Makrele – Mackerel – Makrill in Latin is Scomber Scombrus? 🙂
