During the days I had to make sure the images would appear on the walls. During the nights I cruised old cars through the mud and we laughed.
But then the clouds came and with them a whole lot of rain and wind.
The house we slept in turned out to be too far away.
Instead i would swim in the sea, which was at least warmer than a windy beach.
In the morning the people of the tree invited me to sleep under their tree and I got some rest.
But then the tree was gone and I did not sleep at all. A hole appeared and inside I went. gliding down a rainbow.
I never had to go back up but the time we spend was magical.
She was long gone. But if you look closely you could still see her shadow falling.
Not long after, people started doubting her existence at all. She became somewhat of an urban legend.
The believers even started calling her a galactic activation portal.
Today was Rosa Menkman’s day on my blog.
I decided that, from now, I will celebrate a female artist on my blog each Monday. Everyone hates mondays so I am giving you a reason to love it, at least a little. I chose Rosa Menkman to start with because, guess what, she is an amazing artist. She expresses with glitch art and she is one of the glitch artists I admire the most.
If you liked what you saw on my blog today or if you want to know more about her, you can follow and catch up with her on the internet.

7 Days Of Sound
A festival in the first week of December on experimental audio and visuals, featuring a screening of Net Art Music Videos curated by myself:
7 Days of Sound is a festival exploring the types of practice which exist between contemporary visual art and experimental music which has been organized by [RHP] CDRs, is hosted by Althorpe Studios and Gallery and was funded by Warwick District Council.
The festival is built around a large exhibition, titled 365 Days of Sound, which both celebrates the past year of [RHP] CDRs activity and looks forward to the coming year. Included in the exhibition are a range of art works, objects, merchandise, articles and other contextual information from the archive which has been built around the artists we work with.
The festival will be held at the Althorpe Studios & Gallery in Leamington Spa, UK, and the Net Art Music Video screening will feature VJ sets from Michael Lightborne and Antonio Roberts afterwards.
