This world is running too fast. I'm running too fast. I don't pay enough attention to details anymore. We set a goal and we run towards it without paying attention to the path which leads to the goal.
Once we arrive we have already the next goal. What happened in between?
I walked the other night into the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco towards the de Young museum. There were only a few lights. It was pretty dark. It was the first time I went on the other side of the de Young Museum where the new Academy of science is going to open up by the end of this year.
It was magical. The darkness was taking over the existing lights and filtered only the abstract details of the night. When I looked up, the tree branches against the dark blue sky felt structered and hard yet natural. When I looked down the mirror play of the branches in the pond looked floating and sensual.
It was easy to see details because there was no daylight distracting my eyes to wonder all over the place. I wished I would have had a camera to freeze this moment of absolut beauty.
It looks like that nature is almost always the inspiring factor in my work.
