We all know a lot.
How does knowledge feel?
And how do you feel that you know?
How do you feel what you know?
How do your feelings feel?
Your felt feeling!

Consult your feeling of being disconnected and being connected,
Being indifferent or committed.
Does feeling connected make you more empathic?
Does empathy make your surroundings more tangible?
Are your feelings embodied knowledge?
Does your body drive action?
What space makes you want to act?
Does your felt knowledge make space for others?
Your felt space!

There is a difference between wanting to act and acting.
One is thinking, the other is doing.
Do you recognise the feeling of wanting to act but not acting?
Hold this feeling.
Then consult your own experience of empathic action.
Now pause.
How does the discrepancy between the desire to act and the experience of action feel?
Bring the pause to an end.

A year in the life of a tree. Every third week the artist Rune Bosse cut a branch of a beech tree, planed it until it was 2-3 mm., then put it in a press to retain the colour of the branch at the precise time of year.

Thomas Demand, Clearing, 2004. Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
This forest scenery never existed except for in Demand’s studio, where more than a hundred thousand leaves where hung with strings, and everything carefully staged. The photo hangs in one of the beautiful glass corridors that run through the gardens of the museum, where the boundaries between inside and outside blur. These glass framed views of cultured nature from the outside gardens are then reflected back onto the photo’s surface according to your changing position and light conditions. Standing in front of the photo, trying to enter the scenery with your gaze, you are then suddenly transported back outside in the gardens, like being suspended between two realms of constructed nature. #fakenature #anthropocene

A great artist has passed away. RIP #PerKirkeby (1938-2018)
