New work: Hridaya, Samsara & Alaka

More works from India 2017 / 2020


Hridaya

According to Ramana Maharshi, the great Advaita master,
“The godly atom of the Self is to be found in the right chamber of the heart,
about one finger-width’s distance from the body’s midline.
“Here lies the Heart, the dynamic Spiritual Heart.
It is called Hridaya, is located on the right side of the chest, and is clearly visible
to the inner eye of an adept on the Spiritual Path.
Through meditation you can learn to find the Self in the cave of this Heart.”
The word Hridaya is a composite of hrid and ayam, meaning “center, heart, and this.”

* * *

Samsara
According to Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and Wordly Affairs:
Samsara is the continuous cycle of life, death, and reincarnation envisioned in Hinduism
and other Indian religions. In Hindu and Buddhist practice, samsara is the endless cycle of life and death
from which adherents seek liberation. In Hinduism, the prominent belief is that samsara is a feature of a life
based on illusion (maya). Illusion enables a person to think s/he is an autonomous being
instead of recognizing the connection between one’s self and the rest of reality.
Believing in the illusion of separateness that persists throughout samsara
leads one to act in ways that generate karma and thus perpetuate the cycle of action and rebirth.
By fully grasping the unity or oneness of all things, the believer has the potential to break the illusion
upon which samsara is based and achieve moksha — liberation from samsara.

Whereas moksha (liberation) acts as the positive motivation for Hindu religious practice,
samsara is the negative motivation from which Hindus seek liberation.
The undesirable nature of samsara comes from its unpredictability — people are unaware
of how the actions or karma in their present life will affect their future.
Because past lives affect future ones, a person is never sure about their reincarnation
and the suffering that might accompany it because of past actions.
As the Indian conception of human existence (prior to one’s enlightenment),
samsara is a central component of all religions originating in India.
Buddhists and Sikhs view samsara in much the same way as Hindus,
and Buddhists particularly stress the concept that life is a form of suffering
that is encountered and perpetuated through samsara.
Jainism sees samsara as a base and mundane form of existence that one ought to renounce.

* * *

Alaka
In Hinduism, Alaka (Sanskrit: अलक), which is also sometimes called Alakapuri, is a mythical city.
It is the home of Kubera, the king of Yakshas and the lord of wealth, and his attendants called yakshas.
The Mahabharata mentions this city as the capital of the Yaksha Kingdom.
It is said to be situated on one of the spurs of the Mount Meru in the exalted Himalayas.

Story: No Holiday

Here is a strange  STORY – about not making a holiday:

In late January 2020 – after good business in 2019 – we thought about planning a holiday.
Usually we prefer to leave winter when it is most annoying to us and also before garden season starts again: around February.

We would begin to research destinations which we still would love to see in this lifetime. But this time something was different.

We believe we are no frequent travelers.
We have not been flying that much during the past 23 years – less than one flight per year on average. (Is this a lot compared to others?)

After we made our first long distance flight to amazing Thailand in 2004 we decided that we would generally never fly that far for only a short period of time,
because it is such a hassle to fly, never comfortable and simply did not feel right to jump around in planes only for staying somewhere for a short time and then leave again soon. During that Thailand trip we stayed for 4 weeks and really felt we had a chance to connect with the land, culture and people. It was a wonderful backpackers’s experience.

We always thought that traveling is something very valuable, special, and expensive – especially for the finances of a self-employed artist/photographer
who is always at risk to miss a job while away – as well as for the environment.
For us, traveling is something that should not be taken lightly and should be done very consciously.

Also, we believe that the (cosmic) radiation and the air in airplanes are not so healthy for the human body,
so after this first long distance flight we took in 2004 we decided to only fly when it really makes sense to us
(for example working/producing a project or an artist residency).

Since we have always been interested in a real travel experience, we believe that traveling slowly with time and gratitude is the way we would do it.
As artists we want to immerse deeply into experiencing other cultures and we believe this cannot be done in a „cruise ship“ manner.

We believe flying is a luxury and should be treated as one.
We were never interested when those cheap flights came up that make you jump around Europe for a weekend.
Not only, because we think there can be no healthy correlation between the resources spent and the experience one can have,
but also because we think that one cannot be really there, if one is not really there – arriving on a Friday and leaving on a Sunday.

I am quite sure we would think differently if flying would be possible with 100 % renewable energy and would be CO2 neutral
or if there would be a safe way to beam/transport humans like in STAR TREK.
Everyone who consumes energy and resources has responsibility.

So in 2019 we booked our first real holiday in 7 years. We chose the Seychelles, because we hoped we could still see some healthy corals and snorkel a bit.
The medium intense online research led us to believe that the corals there are still okay.
But: even though we went to supposedly good locations for snorkeling we saw 90 % dead corals. Thom was devastated.
I tried to keep up the holiday mood, and superficially enjoy the surface of the sea,
but we were both very shocked by the ill condition of underwater life in the areas we saw.

The Seychelles already are very eco conscious, because they know that healthy nature is crucial for their (only) economy,
which is tourism. It was sad to see that they are already fighting to keep up the beauty.

We then began a long discussion which went on over several weeks. We dove deep into our conscience:
was it worth spending so much money to see dead corals?
By traveling with such high consumption in CO2 + other poisons, we are definitely contributing to that same climate change
we so much want to help preventing in our daily life and are, of course, therefor in a way partly co-responsible for the dead corals.

Thom soon reached a very radical conclusion:
he decided to make NO HOLIDAY in 2020 because for him, the whole hassle of spending so much money,
being cramped in an airplane, contributing to climate change by that and then being disillusioned by nature out of balance was not worth it for him.

Also: he had checked our climate footprint (WWF tool) earlier and realized
that we are destroying almost all our organic gardening and green lifestyle efforts with one single flight per year.
https://www.wwf.de/themen-projekte/klima-energie/wwf-klimarechner
https://footprint.wwf.org.uk

The result was that our CO2 footprint is better than that of the average German – even including 4 flights in the last 5 years (!).
The worst point is the oil heating in the house we live in, but we are currently unfortunately not in the position to change that.

Thanks to our sustainability choices in all other aspects of our lives which we have been extending over the last 32 years
(Nabiha, becoming eco-conscious at the age of 11) and 23 years (Thom, gaining that same sense inspired by Nabiha at the age of 23)
our CO2 consumption is much less than average, but the flights again add too much CO2 in the end.

So in late January 2020 Thom decided he could not live with this – so no holiday by plane in 2020.

Thom was particularly strict about not flying this year – which was a bit strange.
To me, we already were living by our own „rule“ of reducing possible flights to maximum one per year.

I completely agreed with him on the rational level. But emotionally I began to revolt:
why should we be the only ones forgoing a holiday while everyone else just gives a s*** and flying becomes even more popular each year?
Exploring new strange places, nature and cultures is one of my deepest desires as a photographer and artist.

It made me very sad to realize that if I love nature so much I should not continue damaging Gaia by consuming that much CO2 by flying.

For me, this is a really tough dilemma which I almost can not dissolve at this time of my life.
On the one hand, I want to promote the „unity of mankind“: getting as many people from all over the world closer together in our hearts and minds.
I am taking my individual role and responsibility as an artist seriously.
I want to encourage people from all over the world to connect and exchange thoughts and visions of a healthy life in balance.

On the other hand, I want to protect nature.
But, if „we all“ continue flying (consuming CO2) so much while we are connecting on a global scale (which is great) –
we will destroy the only home we all have at the same time: planet Earth.

So, we urgently need to change.

Flying should be CO2 neutral – this would be my dream!
I strongly believe that traveling helps people to realize that we are all one human species on this planet
and it helps to realize that we are all the same in our hopes, fears, loves and dreams and desires (The „unity“ spirit the world needs…).

I don’t want to imagine a world were traveling is not allowed anymore.
I believe that all transportation must become CO2 neutral and fueled by renewable energy – immediately.
But this will take some time.

As usual, human beings tend to change their behavior only when it really hurts.
Unfortunate it has been too easy to exhaust oil and coal – but now we finally realize the true costs
behind the unconscious exploitation of planet Earth since the industrial revolution began.

(Also we think that compensating flights by paying extra for planting trees is eyewash, firstly because:
the poisons emitted by airplanes/cruise ships are in the air and it is a general difference if poison is emitted or not,
and secondly: young trees cannot compensate much CO2, because they are still too small and still need 10 to 30 years fo grow.
This is why it is so important to protect all trees on the planet that are still here!)

Then there was this moment in our discussion when I said to Thom
„It would be okay for me if EVERYONE would be forbidden to fly!
I would even agree to a worldwide 5 year flight-ban if this would help reduce global warming!
Imagine this: the whole world working together saving CO2 to ward off climate catastrophes!”

Thom and I are willing to cut down our consumption even more and we would still feel rich inside.
During all last years of getting more and more into organic gardening, we realized that we feel more rich and grateful
the more nature we have in our lives and the more healthy the plants and trees that surround us are.

We believe there is a huge potential for all societies with high rates of CO2 to cleverly change to a sustainable society
– without the feeling of loss. The time to change is now.

Just imagine: if reincarnation was real, would you like to come back to planet Earth in let´s say 100/200 or 500 years?
What I mean: maybe we are not only leaving behind this planet for the children,
but for ourselves? So how would you like this planet to be for your next lifetime?

In our discussion about our own ethics towards flying we then came to the conclusion
that flying only every other year also saves at least some CO2.

I humbly accepted my „fate“ of not being able to escape the annoying German winter this year
and began to work on projects that I didn’t find the time for so far (which is very fulfilling).

All this ethical discussion about traveling by airplane happened while the Corona Virus was still in China.
The flights we would have booked would have been between mid February and mid March
– exactly the time when Corona officially arrived in Germany (around Feb 26) and Bavaria started the lockdown on Mach 20 2020.

Looking back to our discussion and Thom´s strong urge of not flying this year now feels like a very impressive intuition
which definitely saved us from a lot of trouble. It now feels like he protected us from an unpleasant experience which would have costed money,
blown a lot of CO2 into the atmosphere and quite sure not have been a proper holiday experience – apart from the risk of contributing to the spread of the virus.

Two of our shows for 2020 have now been postponed to 2021.
It is sad not to be able to exhibit our work physically – but we are now all connected digitally
and a new sense of humility, solidarity and empathy arises.
Maybe our digital tools will be able to help us save the planet and the physical and spiritual health of all humans, too?

We are now enjoying our creative self quarantine and discovering even more wonders that lie within ourselves,
hoping for the world to become more healthy and balanced through this global wake up call.

Stay strong & healthy, everyone!

New work: VARAHA II

 

VARAHA II, 2020

is a photo montage and my second collaboration with a boar.
I was visiting an animal park in Germany and photographed the reflections of the trees
on the water surface of a pond inside a boar´s fence.

After some time a huge boar came to bathe inside this pond.
At first I was irritated because he „destroyed“ the clean tree reflections represented in this series called VARAHA II.
Soon I saw the bizarre patterns that originated from the water surface –
taking the shapes of animal spirits and all forms of phantastic figures (see my series VARAHA I)
– a truly inspirational encounter with a very strong and important animal.

The Weaver

THE WEAVER (series of 6)
Panipat, India 2017

In collaboration with The Raj Art Initiative

Fabruary 2018:
* FINALIST of the ART OF ENGINEERING award by Ferchau Engineering *

April 2018
Interview
vom Ferchau ART OF ENGINEERING award 2017/2018 über unsere Serie THE WEAVER
www.ferchau.com/the-weaver-der-ursprung-der-digitalisierung

* * *
„Die Fotos zu The Weaver entstanden in einer alten Weberei in der indischen Stadt Panipat“, so Thomas Kolodziej. „Für uns war es wie eine Reise durch die vergangenen Jahrhunderte. Alles dort ließ uns die Ursprünge der handbetriebenen Weberei nachempfinden, führte uns über die ersten Webmaschinen hin zur Moderne.“ Mit The Weaver soll die bildliche Verbindung zwischen analoger und digitaler Arbeitswelt hergestellt werden. Die Motive: Webmaschinen, mehrfach belichtet und gespiegelt. „Durch die Überlagerung der Bilder entstehen neue, netzartige Strukturen, die analog betrachtet das Endprodukt des Webens, digital betrachtet aber auch das heutige globale Netzwerk darstellen“, so Kolodziej.

Im Laufe der Arbeiten zur Bilderserie wurde dem Künstlerduo klar, wie stark die Modernisierung unserer Welt von der Entwicklung in der Weberei geprägt und wie fest die Sprache dieses Kunsthandwerks bis heute in unserem Alltag verankert ist. „Wir verlieren den Faden, spinnen ihn weiter und ohne das digitale weltumspannende Netzwerk, das Internet, wäre die Globalisierung nicht möglich“, so Nabiha Dahhan. „Begonnen hat all dies mit den Spinnmaschinen und den mechanischen Webstühlen. Diese setzten die erste industrielle Revolution in Gang, die schließlich die weitere technische Entwicklung und somit auch die aktuelle, als vierte industrielle Revolution bezeichnete Digitalisierung erst ermöglichte.

“Tatsächlich erfand Joseph-Marie Jacquard mit der nach ihm benannten Jacquardmaschine den ersten flächenmäßig eingesetzten Webstuhl, der auf Basis von Lochkarten automatisiert Muster in Stoffe weben konnte. „Die Lochkarte diente bis Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts auch in der Informationstechnik als Speichermedium, ist also der Vorläufer der Chips, die heute in Smartphones und Tablets, aber auch in der Kamera zu finden sind, mit der wir die Motive von The Weaver aufgenommen haben“, so Kolodziej. „In diesem Projekt brachten wir die technische Gegenwart in faszinierender Weise mit ihren Wurzeln zusammen. Es schließt sich ein Kreis. Die Evolution kehrt zu ihrem Ausgangspunkt zurück, was der Symbolkraft der Bilder eine zusätzliche, kaum greifbare Dimension verleiht.“

* * *

THE WEAVER ist eine ganz neue, bisher unveröffentlichte Serie,
die wir innerhalb einer artist residency vor kurzem in Indien und
in Kooperation mit der Raj Art Initiative produziert haben.
Die Raj Group ist eine der ältesten Webereien in Panipat, Indien
und symbolisiert für uns auf wunderbare Weise die per-digitale Zeit:
der Stoff, der gewebt wird erscheint im Bearbeitungsprozess der Web-Maschinen
wie eine Kombination aus 1 und 0 – wobei ein Muster, eine Fläche, ein Objekt – eine neue Realität entsteht.

Durch die Art der zeitgenössischen (digitalen) Fotografie,
mit der wir vielschichtige Metamorphosen dieser traditionellen Web-Maschinen erstellt haben,
stellen wir eine Verbindung aus dem Alten-Analogen – zum aktuell Digitalen her.
Die Woll-Fäden fliessen in ihren Bahnen wie digitale Datenströme
und symbolisieren auf ästhetische Weise unsere analoge Vergangenheit –
und den Weg in die digitale Gegenwart und Zukunft.
Bewegung, Fluss und Wandel drückt sich in jedem Bild dieser Serie aus fünf Einzelbildern aus.

* * *

THE WEAVER is a new, so far unpublished series that we produced a few weeks ago
during one of our artist residencies in India in cooperation with the Raj Art Initiative.
The Raj Group is on of the oldest weaving factories in Panipat, north India.
For us, the processes of machine production symbolise the pre digital age in a fascinating way.
With the images we have created we have made a connection between the analoge and digital age:
the wool/weaving patterns and lines inside the sewing machines
could be seen like a pre-digital combination of „0“ and „1“s, creating patterns that look like digital data streams,
symbolising movement, structure, progress, change and in a way the „digitalness“ that is part of our lives today.

Fortunately the owl survived.

WONDERLAND, 2000

WONDERLAND, London 2000
100×150 cm 5+2
 Plays with the medium photography.
Reflecting the teachings of photography at university,
we decided to deviate from traditional conceptual thinking
by using photography in its literal sense: to paint with light.
