„Was bleibt ist die »Methode« der Utopie: sich in einer Denkkammer von der sozialen Wirklichkeit zu lösen und deren Elemente zu neuen Mustern zu kombinieren; und zweitens ihre Intention: die verschlossene spielerische Kombination in die soziale Wirklichkeit zu entlassen, wo sie den Einzelnen die denkerische Befreiung aus Handlungs- und Sachzwängen verschafft und den Ausblick in die »unendliche Möglichkeit« erlaubt“
Aus „Die utopische Methode. Eine literatur- u. wissenssoziologische Untersuchung deutscher utopischer Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts.“ von Hans-Jürgen Krysmanski

bastisRIKE LEIPZIG TILES
[leipzig 2015]

wieder daheim, wohnungs- und ratlos. wie moechten wir wohnen, worauf koennen wir verzichten, was ist muss? fragen ueber fragen. durcheinander ob der vielen schoenen heime anderer dort draussen. lichtdurchflutete altbauten mit knarrzenden holzboeden ueberall. in digitaler und gedruckter form. vorzeige-glueck das das fragen nach dem eigenen wie naehrt.

unser hausen hat mich doch gelehrt: so nicht wieder. aber doch auch: zufriedenheit und glueck kleben weder an dielenboeden, noch lassen sie sich durch kunststofffenster verschrecken. irgendwo beruhigend. und vielleicht haben die stimmen doch noch recht: unser heim, welches unsere herzen huepfen laesst, wartet einfach noch auf uns.

 

+ andersherum: jeder qm du. keine alt- sondern plattenbauwohnungen.
+ ein wurm im ohr: mutter „die erde wird der schönste platz im all“
+ meine utopie, immer wieder spannend
+ michel gondry + noam chomsky = hinhoeren + sehen
+ manches zwischenmenschliche ist und bleibt mir unverstaendlich, aber obacht: „Instant Karma’s gonna get you“

[wristworms by sandra]

bastisRIKE TEATIME

der herbst ist ganz meins. und so macht er die teestunden ohne viel zu tun gleich gemuetlicher. das chaos drumherum tritt fuer ein paar minuten in den hintergrund.

– immer wieder #rikesteatime // stets suchend nach dem perfekten einem guten begleiter. nicht zu sueß, dafuer gerne bodenstaendig
– dank mieke gefunden und mit großer freude gesehen: stanley kubrick’s boxes
– ein herzensprojekt einer lieben freundin: dein tod und ich
– auf meinem plattenteller: dogs by kim hiorthoy
– große vorfreude ˄˄
„buy less, choose well, make ist last – because we don’t need so much“

 

///

 

i love fall. you don’t need much more to make a cozy teatime at home.  for a few minutes the surrounding chaos gets in the background.

– again and again #rikesteatime // always searching for the perfect a good partner. not too sweet, but down-to earth
– found thanks mieke and watched with joy: stanley kubrick’s boxes
– on my turntable: dogs by kim hiorthoy
– great anticipation ˄˄
„buy less, choose well, make ist last – because we don’t need so much“

note: after much thought i decided to turn the comment function off from now. it’s one result of the fact that i want – and need – to establish a healthier way of living. healthier in the meaning of happier.
and to use the images above as an metaphor: this includes an healthy proportionality of ups and downs.

this blog will be one of my tools to get there.
a tool i want to use without finding myself being wrapped up in.
actually i want to fill this place again by getting back to ‚making‘.
more on this in another post.

this does not mean that i didn’t appreciate every single comment you have left here before. in fact i put much more weight on comments than i would like to admit. so i asked myself what i need to do, to keep this place stressless, enjoyable and sustainable for me, so i can use it as an useful tool to reach my goal. my answer from todays point of view: no comments.
and so i decided to give it a try.

ma’am, step away from the computer!

■ a day in the life 11.04.2014 - 13:07 uhr

bastisRIKE was invited to take over the etsy instagram feed today/yesterday. we are still excited to be featured on etsy’s inspiring #dayinthelife series on IG.

i decided to show you the whole bunch of pictures i sent in. the large-sized ones are those etsy choosed for the series which is reduced to 5 pics a day.

bastisRIKE #dayinthelife on Etsy's Instagram
My days start with a walk with Basti my dog and name giver for ‚bastisRIKE‘. During spring our way is dotted with petal confetti. It’s the best thing to start a day and to wake up fully. And if it doesn’t help: Back at home breakfast and coffee is already waiting, prepared by my bearded man.

bastisRIKE #dayinthelife on Etsy's Instagram
Baking is my kind of meditation if work gets too stressful. Besides the bakeries around our home are sadly quiet bad. So every couple of days there’s a bread dough growing. And if there’s just a small amount of time my favourite choice is the famous #nokneadbread.

Every now and then, depending on the order situation, i have to restock my stamps. This means cutting, mounting and applying matching labels on top. Not a creative part of my work but it helps with sorting thoughts and ideas.

bastisRIKE #dayinthelife on Etsy's Instagram
Two sources of inspiration. Photos made with my old nikon and even more important: the bearded man pictured together with Basti. He’s by my side since almost 14 years and I cant imagine a life without him. He’s my best friend and the man i love.

■ shop news I 14.03.2014 - 18:07 uhr

i’m happy to tell you there’s a new print in my shop (for now exclusively via etsy): tree.06
large sized (23.62 x 31.5 inch // 60 x 80 cm), printed with vegetable based inks on matte, stable recycling paper.

bastisRIKE print tree.06

the original artwork is hanging in our living room. you can see it here or there. it’s a relic from my final work at art college back in 2010. reduced to a few words: i collected used christmas trees and photographed them in my studio. tree.06 still wears some lametta. below you can see one collecting point i visited.

and here are some other trees of the series:

HENRIKESCHOEN_BAUM_05 HENRIKESCHOEN_BAUM_01
HENRIKESCHOEN_BAUM_10 HENRIKESCHOEN_BAUM_08

it took me quiet a long time to decide to reprint this. and now i’m glad this work – or at least one piece – isn’t hidden at the attic anymore. sometimes you need a little push, right?

a few analogue pics of this fading winter. right now, the sun is shining and the birds call out spring. the last weeks and months i have been missing the real cold and snow out there, but in the end there’s alway something beautiful to find.

a few pics of our weekend in leipzig last november. sometimes it’s better to just be there, not looking through the viewfinder or on a display.

zeughaus leipzig. again and again. no wonder trixi loves it too.

bastisRIKE leipzig in november

thinking a lot about moving those days. thinking about prioritys.
simply put, what comes first:
a) the job, or
b) the place of living?

is it as simple as it sounds? the more i think about it the more i believe some courage and unreasonableness can be your best friends.

■ sweet chestnuts 29.11.2013 - 12:45 uhr

in october i had to stay a weekend in my childhood home to take care of parents dog. i took the opportunity to gather chestnuts on sunday early morning. glad to know those two old sweet chestnuts trees are still there.

to stay outside without seeing anybody is the best comfort to me. i love those quiet minutes. no cars, no people, no noise. just the flattering of leaves and thuds of chestnuts falling off the trees.

■ send the monster home 4.10.2013 - 10:59 uhr

bastisRIKE A ROOM WITH A VIEW (denmark)

thinking a lot about how i want to live and how our home should support this ideas. a second water damage in our home (remember this?) has been another kick-off. so boxes filled with clutter will move to the thrift store soon. i cleaned my working place and sorted out a lot of crafting materials i didn’t use in months.
so much perfection out there (thanks anna for sharing), a warm invitation to the well known green-eyed monster.

but you know what? i think it’s good and important to know about this omnipresent system of self-promotion. to know how it works and to know there’s another truth behind. it offers you the chance to send the monster home. to find your own way in this game, to prevent getting lost, to set limits and to remember that this online life is  some kind of a bubble you can leave with a klick if you want. (erinnert ihr euch an peter lustig?)

it’s a matter of moderation. as in many other situations in life, too much is unhealthy. and, if this monster knocks on my door every know and then, it’s ok. i’m the one to throw it out again, or to use its energy in a positiv and/or productive way.
i’m not perfect. and in the end, i think there’s no perfection at all.
how reassuring.

happy friday!
