Looking for the Ostalgie

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

Approximately eight years ago I visited the German island Rügen. I spent a week’s holiday. I stayed at the seaside resort Binz. From there I started my daily bicyle rides. As far as I could I drove with my rented boneshaker to explore the island from the former GDR. On my vintage bike I was cruising through wonderful nature and always looking for signs of Ostalgie. Unfortunately I have not found them much more. The renovation had long since made their entrance. But that has not bothered me much. Any time I would spend my vacations again on this island.

Early in my career I felt that organization would destroy my creativity. Whereas now, I feel the opposite. Discipline is the concrete that allows you to be creative (Verna Gibson).

The 70s always catch me. Repeatedly I find myself doing to glimpse on the typically sunny colours and sometimes kitschy decorations and furniture. Although in our apartment is noticeable some 70s influence so far I managed to keep the balance between the 70s and other influences. But when I see the pictures of the the arrangement of a young Japanese couple which lives without cutting back the 70s style I become ecstatic. The pictures are from Sean Myers.

I’m almost speechless. That’s why I don’t want to lose to many words. I want the pictures to speak. I looove it. The lamp, the table, the chair.. perfect (R GALLERY).
