As part of the activities in the color garden we started to build the open kitchen. This social plastic, itself an artwork and sculpture, will host an open kitchen and an oven to cook for wwoofer and other willing helper and supporter in the garden area.
After starting with three lines of deep foundation we build the living shuttering (living in that case means, that it becomes part of the surface of the buildung).
Moving more than 8 to of sand, gravel, water and natural stones we finished the platform of contrete and started with first walls. The glas bottles are used to give some light inside the sculpture.
Under supervision from Che his mother placed some concrete blocks in the right positions. The excavator is not needed…
The basement of the oven will be used to guard wood and other stuff, the kitchenette will be part of the working area of the open kitchen to handle food and to boil dye plants (to get pigments) and to manufacture natural soap.
One of the most wonderful things for an artist (even if he work in the field of social sculpture) is to work with natural stones. On one hand its a slowly work but you should taste it and you will enjoy the flow (decelerate yourself in times of burn out).
Thanks to Sonia, Che, Mariella, Margret, Noah, Antje, Corinna and Katrin and all the other hard workers to start this project. We will continue…
