Interpretation and reflection of the poem Night, Street, Lantern, Pharmacy by the Russian poet Aleksandr Blok . It was written in October 1912 and it is one of my favourite poems by Blok. The video is as well an experiment for to combine two different ways and styles of interpretation into one film. With urban scenery of St.Petersburg at night and the metaphoric and abstract interpretation of poem by the theatre group STAGE DFT (St.Petersburg, Russia). At the same time it´s a homage to St.Petersburg. The idea for a visual interpretation I got during a streetcar ride through St. Petersburg late a night. Aleksandr Blok (Александр Блок) (1880-1921) was the foremost of the Russian Symbolists, who changed the face of Russian letters from the late 1890s through until the Russian Revolution, leading Russian literature into a ‘Silver Age’ after the great works of the previous century. Even the poem is very short it is not easy to translate into another language. There are various English translation which differ quite a lot from each other . So I tried to make a visual interpretation of it.

Night, street, lantern, pharmacy,

a meaningless and dull light

Even if you live another quarter of a century

All will remain the same. There is no exit.

You´ll die - then you´ll begin all over again

Night, the canal´s rippled icy surface

pharmacy, street, lantern

obsceno”

dark arts meet

obsceno is an international meeting of graphic, plastic, visual arts, poetry, art in movement and music. Which seeks to give space and make counter cultural expressions visible that take place from the viscera of the contemporary city.

We know that we contain a universe of emotions, and that, within this eclipse of sensations coexist those that are condemned as shameful, indecent, impure, unspeakable, those that shake our innermost being, which weigh, worry, which are exposed as negative due to to a series of inherited irrational beliefs, cultural thoughts rooted and a manipulated context, but that, even if we try to ignore it, live inherently in us and are part of the spectrum of the human experience.

Brushing Up My Etsy Shops

 After a few months it was time to brush my two Etsy shops. I have added new articles. Photography works featuring predominantly colorful and vibrant floral motifs and a range of conceptual and contemporary prints. However, most works can now be purchased by directly downloading the motif. The advantage is that you can decide for yourself which paper you want to print on and in which size. Another benefit is saving on postage, which has become ridiculously expensive. This way it is also a little more environmentally friendly 

Please feel free to take a look around my shops
