Glimpses 05 – August 2008

n

I have been thinking about a new Glimpses post for some time – but no image came to mind – until this morning. The image in this Glimpses represents a shift in my experience of photography and creation. As you can see in the small image when I started out on my journey with Shahar – I wasn’t very subtle. I was trying to understand my relationship and position in this space. I was feeling separate for the space – the result was a dramatic intervention – photographically inserting myself into the space. I took an intimate moment and inserted myself into it. That’s one way.

Isn’t it Ironic?

n

The other day I went to visit an art gallery with an exhibition that displays 23 pairs of portraits of people before and after their deaths. It’s an intense exhibition – but I also found it comforting and amusing. Initially I felt nothing but then I felt a physical pressure in my abdomen. I found this image which you can click for a link to additional information about the exhibition:

When that gave way some thoughts came to mind. Read More »

SweetClarity

n

I suppose it’s about time I made a formal introduction of SweetClarity here at StillCreation. The best way for me to describe SweetClarity is through it’s manifest which you can read here. SweetClarity was born during the summer of 2007 shortly after Shahar & I completed our second collaboration and my first exhibition. The best way to understand SweetClarity is to experience it. So I will take this opportunity to share a new SweetClarity publication.

Artness Garden Performance

n

A few weeks ago Shahar initiated a performance in his garden where he installed a 60sqm wooden stage. The performance was of course completely improvised. We also setup a screen and projection for live-stills that were an ongoing part of the performance.

The first piece was a contact duet with Or and Miki who are both impressive physical dancers. It was a great opening as they began their warm-up on stage while Shahar addressed the intimate audiences that showed up. Their piece ended as they rolled off the stage to merge with the audience and clear the stage for Shlomit.

The second piece was by Shlomit who had contacted Shahar and asked to perform just a few days before the performance. We met her for the first time a few hours before the performance. I was really moved by her performance and I hope I get to work with her again in the future.

The third peace was with Shahar. It was intended to be a duet with a musician who couldn’t make it. Instead Shahar asked Shantam, a friend in the audience (who is also a musician), to recite some poetry written by a friend who came along with Shlomit. It was a funny meeting that results in curious & refreshing energies.

Then the stage became an open-space for all to play, including some people from the audience who were familiar with the creative dynamics.

A less-unhealthy Spanish Tortilla

n

A few months ago when I was in Barcelona for two weeks – I had a pretty hard time with food (I don’t eat meat, fish or fried food!). The one thing that saved me was “batatas bravas” which is their local french-fries and tortillas. My digestion was still a mess because of the heavy use of oil, but at least I had something to eat. A few months later, Helena taught me to make a tortilla while she was here in Israel. I got very clear instructions, the do’s and the dont’s – but I was still having a hard time with the quantity of oil that went into the dish.

It’s a really nice dish to eat – quite fulfilling and high on energy – so I have modified the recipe, broke a few rules and came up with this version of a tortilla which is more suitable for me. So here we go : ) The quantities below are not exact (I improvise when I cook) – but they result in a reasonably sized tortilla with for 4.  It’s a simple dish but it does take some time – it takes me about 45 minutes!
