`Meditation room 2010`
This is the name of my very first installation;)
It`s not a masterpiece but it was so fun to do it and very inspiring at the same time;)
We had this project called `landart` at school and for those of you who don`t know what is it i can tell it`s mainly art created in nature using only natural object found in nature.(more about it here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_art).
We were sent to a half cement factory/ half junkyard closeby the school.Actually it was a very good place for natural objects.
My project though, didn`t turn out to be a landart project ;)But i still used only natural object to do it so;)
I found a rusty , old , huge metal tube against which i had a `love at first sight` feeling;)I decided to use it for my project the very first time i saw it;)
The idea of `meditation room` came strightly afterwards ;)
I decided to make this old, abandoned, rusty place a cozy, warm, peaceful shelter of meditation.
So the first thing was to collect the materials , which were nice enough but sometimes hard to carry , sometimes hard to be pulled out from the junk!
I spend around 1 hour to pull out 6 pieces of rusty chains from the junk, but it was worth it i think;)
The other materials used were different kind of stones,different kinds of wood ashes , some other metal junks, dry flowers, mosses, shells, some fresh grass and some fresh but injured leaves .I tried not to harm nature at all while doing it!
In the video you might get a better idea of the materials i used and the places where i got them.
Except the main idea of the meditation room , i tried to enhance the idea of humanity not protecting the nature (the rusty chains hanged in the tube symbolise the industrialisation and a decay of awareness in general), but the nature and nature elements in a way protect and recycle theirselves in an infinite way(this is enhanced more by the spiral symbols which can be seen everywhere).
And the last but not the least ;) i prepared a meditation pillow, out of wood and grass.It came out very cozy and put me in the mood to meditate;)
I had never meditated before but i tried to this time and it felt nice , even though i don`t know if i did it right;)
It was a nice experience but too short;)But it is still there for anyone that wants to go and meditate (Vraa Morkerwerk) ;)
