I’ll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know
I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
The light on your door to show that you’re home

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you

I find it hard to believe you don’t know
The beauty that you are
But if you don’t let me be your eyes
A hand in your darkness, so you won’t be afraid

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you

I’ll be your mirror
(reflect what you are)

Lou Reed/ Velvet Underground

Sometimes I just need vacation from artwork made by photographers and the technical immaculateness of their images.

Sometimes I am suffocated by the limitations of photographers photography thus motivated to move to something different, to move to the wider spaces of art.

I was in this state of mind two days ago when I stumbled over
Isabelle Wenzel´s homepage
(via the sonic blog)

While sending her a mail and wondering if an answer will come, the rough surface of her work and her playing with everyday elements to install an obviously constructed reality Urs Lüthi came to my mind and here we are now.

Once I was asked to define art, and I remember having hated the question, because I just couldn´t answer it, and I still can´t.

Art could be pretending to fly like the heroes in old fairy tales,
Art could be the deconstruction of reality.

Art could be magic or pure trickery.

Art could be dreaming of creation.

Art could be like a child´s game called hide and seek,

Art could relate to art and nothing but art.
Art could be communication.

Art could be your mirror.
And mine.
