Thanks for that comparison, German :-) And yeah, why not, let´s listen to "Heart Attack and Vine": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C49H3aWdiK8

dahlias´ competition
Actually about fifty sorts of dahlias explode on the Killesberg. In the exhibition garden they also show how dahlias looked thirty years ago, and which sorts were winning the last ten competitions. There is a lot of progress! I liked those new firy ones. The photo ist not completely natural - via software I let the fire burn a bit more, and the background sings "Hallelujah" now.

Well, to me those modern Daliahs, cultured to be a dream of colour, have reached the climax. They are firy impressive. They need a choir. And this choir is composed by their foliage. The darker parts of the picture seem to me like the outer parts of a baroque painting: angels all over, and they sing.

To Ursula: xyxyxyxyxyxy
To Raija: We all did not have those occasions when we were young. The three times where I climbed twenty years ago were illegal and life-threatening. Now they offer this risky fun with a lot of security. Half of the people who climbed around during our day were under 18.

you looks so very young and happy !
Chris Mennel

Thanks, German, Ursula and Raija. I had to imagine that I´m young to give the ape there in the trees.

good expirience! You look like you have fun! Everyone is so young as he feel - that people say: is it true?
Chris Mennel
09:28:14 21/09/2014
Hi Mirja, for the state of our minds I think this is right: You are as young as you feel. For the state of our bodies our biological faith limits the possibilities. "Do it, as long as you can do it!" sometimes gives the impulse for some action.
Raija Silvennoinen
16:34:00 21/09/2014
Good!!!

Yes, Chris, i agree :-)

Installation "Mind behind Stone" in the country

hello Donate! ups, the installation fight with wind...or with Donate? heheh
Wolf Nkole Helzle
08:44:08 23/09/2014
4 times the same motif?
Chris Mennel
09:37:40 23/09/2014
To Mirja: Donate and me still wonder, what happened in this second to let her open her mouth this way. We can´t remember, but it looks like a cry in a fight. Yes, the wind blew heavy and crazy on this day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAkp9kCaLtA

To Wolf: This motiv was planned just as one between 15 other motifs for an exhibition at the Photokina Köln. But the company misinterpreted the order and provided 16 times the same photo! We made a deal instead of destroying 15 displays. Now I´m experimenting what to do with this accidental richness.
Raija Silvennoinen
13:27:29 23/09/2014
oh my, what a story! You can send some for me...And <3 greetings to Donate , you
Raija Silvennoinen
13:28:52 23/09/2014
can have moments you don´t remember...but trust photos!
Chris Mennel
19:24:48 23/09/2014
Thanks, Raija. I´ll reserve one of the displays for you. And yes, a photo may catch a real moment. But it creates an illusion in this case..

...same installation two days later at University Stuttgart
Hearing woman

"Mind behind stone"...hmm, but your eyes look all the more intense. There are many eyes looking at the visitor - in secret, a silent observer?
Hearing woman
23:14:24 22/09/2014
But you looks very open in the picture - not so secret :-)
Wolf Nkole Helzle
08:45:50 23/09/2014
hi Chris, nice to meet you inside of your stone age installation ;-)
Chris Mennel
09:52:30 23/09/2014
To Mirja: Thanks for your associations. I did not take care about that aspect before: That someone is watching the visitor. To me just the look of the person into some "outside" was important. You are right, especially in these times where we know that our internet actions get collected by spys - these walls show a gesture of watching the people.
Chris Mennel
09:55:19 23/09/2014
To Wolf: Hehe, "Stone Age" - a gesture with stones, showed on modern media - a good point of view!
Raija Silvennoinen
13:31:30 23/09/2014
many associations, and some like Mirja..not so easy to write in my English
Hearing woman
19:43:17 23/09/2014
Raija, you have to use google translater - than it is more easy!
Hearing woman

So often happen that we think of ourself in the idea - we show the "inside" version of the idea and not the "outside" - from what perspective the people will see the idea.
