One month, that sounds like a good amount of time. But time can easily slip through my fingers. In order to use the time of my residence as well as possible, I arranged a quite clear schedule for myelf. Making plans is one thing, but artistic processes might throw out the best plans. I was lucky and my preparation worked well. I spent a lot of time in nature, photographing different shapes and colors. It was the peak of the mushroom season in October. I was fascinated, how mushrooms are growing, transforming and finaly decaying. In addition to my studies in nature, I worked on an installation made of red cords in one of the side buildings. I would like to do this work on a much larger scale, and I hope there will be the opportunity soon. I not only enloed being outdoor in the wind and the great autumn weather, but also used the apartment and the studio space extensively. I transferred photos to fabric and then embroidered the image freely. I was experimenting with this technique, searching for a new language and telling new stories with needle and thread. I felt very comfortable and enjoyed the silence and tranquility in autumn.
