The Old, The Young & The Sea

October 1st, 2012

The first teaser from the new project of NomadEarth just came out and if you like surfing you’ll love this. Even if you’re not into surfing it’s worth to watch the interview in the trailer. There is something very moving and inspiring about this old man and his story about surfing.

Winter Days Are Over

April 16th, 2012

As much as I’m ready for some sun I’ll still miss those days. Those days in the snow, being totally exhausted at the end of the day, having drawn new lines down white slopes, falling over trees and stones, being covered in snow everywhere and doing it again and again. Because I love snowboarding and I want more next winter.

I also just entered the #rememberingwinter project on vixxxenblog.com. A pretty cool blog I recently came across and definitely one you should check out if you’re into board sports, fashion and design.

Now that I’ve said my goodbyes to winter I should probably also say hi to summer. Hi. We all want you to come soon and stay. You’re hot. Or at least we like you when you’re hot.

This is me standing on a longboard for the frist time. Might need some time to make it look more elegant, but after a few gos I feel like I got the hang out of it.

Heartbeats in Paris and Tracing Time

February 1st, 2012

In what seems like a lifetime ago I was in Paris visiting a friend, who was studying there. I had a few days on my own since my friend was mostly busy with uni and my boyfriend was joining me later on for a romantic weekend in Paris. It wasn’t Valentine’s Day but the romantic idea surely helped when we planed the trip.

On one of those days that I spend alone wandering through Paris without a cent in my pocket I somehow ended up in the Centre Pompidou, where I suddenly found myself in a dark room. There was a film by the American artist Nan Goldin playing, accompanied by the voice of Björk (who I accidentally spotted the very same day at a cafe in Paris!)

Heartbeat is a film by Nan Goldin. This picture is stolen off undo.net

It only took a few seconds and I was taken in by the moment. I sat there, completely blown away by the honesty and intimacy the pictures revealed. With my heart I deeply empathized with the feelings Goldin had captured on camera. Having said that – I also could have never expressed those kind of feelings in any way myself. This made me think about my perception of love and relationship and the changes it underwent.

Do we learn more about how to express feelings the older we get? Or do we get more skeptical and just simply better at hiding our feelings? How come that gestures like a hug when saying good bye can mean more over time than a kiss the morning after? But at the same time – aren’t we all willing to give more to get more?

Since then I’ve been looking to find the video on DVD or online. Unfortunately it’s not available anywhere, but today I stumbled upon some footage on YouTube. This is a bad recording, but it does give you an idea of what the film is like.
