MAR 01: MADELEINE BIANCHI – MY FROLIC ADVENTURES IN ALPINE WINTER WONDERLAND!

Madeleine Bianchi - You can be happy, even at a cold winter day!

MADELEINE BIANCHI - You can be happy, even at a cold winter day! WOOHOO! I'M POSING ON A FROZEN LAKE IN THE SWISS ALPS!
Have you SPENT this WINTER with SITTING close by the WARM OVEN?
Then you missed the JOYS that a DAY in WINTER WONDERLAND can bestow!
Do you still REMEMBER the HAPPY DAYS of your CHILDHOOD?
When you went SLEDDING or have FROLICKED in the SNOW with your PLAYMATES!
You have PLAYED outside till DUSK, even when you were CHILLED to the BONE!
When you came home, your MOM awaited you with a CUP of HOT CHOCOLATE!

MADELEINE BIANCHI and ERIC MAURER
Something very poetic about WINTER WONDERLAND by LEWIS CARROLL:
«I WONDER IF THE SNOW LOVES THE TREES AND FIELDS, THAT IT KISSES THEM SO GENTLY?
And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says:
GO TO SLEEP, DARLINGS, TILL THE SUMMER COMES AGAIN.

FEB 16: MADELEINE BIANCHI – A REAL ARTWORK I FOUND IN WINTER WONDERLAND!

Madeleine Bianchi - The whole is more than the sum of its parts.

MADELEINE BIANCHI - The whole is more than the sum of its parts. We hiked on our SNOWSHOES through a narrow VALLEY in the SWISS ALPS!
And suddenly we stood in front of this breathtaking ICEFALL!
Embedded between lofty ROCK WALLS lies this VALLEY from NOVEMBER till FEBRUARY permanently in deep SHADOW!
Millions of meltwater drops freeze during their fall over the icy rock walls!
Thereby all drops together shape an artwork that continually changes and grows!
When the sun thaws the walls, this ice sculpture will become again drinking water!

Photographer MADELEINE BIANCHI and Video Producer ERIC MAURER:
This wonderful ICE SCULPTURE will flow down from its MOUNTAINS as PURE DRINKING WATER to INHABITED AREAS!
Where the so called CIVILIZED PEOPLE reside, that have unlearned, to VALUE this MOST PRECIOUS GIFT of MOTHER NATURE!
Any RUTHLESS EGOIST PROFITS SYSTEMATICALLY and SHAMELESSLY from this UNTENABLE STATE!
By UNTREATED SEWAGE of IDUSTRY, FACTORIES etc., as well as by PUBLIC SEWAGE SYSTEMS!
By the enormous OVERFERTILIZATION and the additional SPREADING of SLURRY on the SOILS by the profit-oriented AGRICULTURE!

But that's not all: there are also MILLIONS of SUPERFLUOUS DUMBASSES, that OVERPOPULATE the GLOBE!
ISN'T IT FUNNY, TO SEE, how THEY ARE SHITTING daily straight INTO every PASSING-FLOWING WATER?

JAN 31: ERIC MAURER – THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES!

ERIC MAURER - At January 29, I was birthday boy!

ERIC MAURER - At January 29, I was birthday boy! DEAR FRIENDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES!

What a wonderful surprise that all of you have thought of me and my birthday!
You have sent me so many, so to say imaginary birthday cakes!
Thus, I'm so glad to send my best wishes to you from wintry Switzerland!
By the way, this CLASSIC SPORTS CAR wasn't a birthday present!
It's a JAGUAR XK 120 OTS, i.e. the two-seated ROADSTER version, produced in 1948!

ERIC MAURER - the Birthday Boy:
Enjoy my Video EXPOSED SUSPENSION BRIDGE, that I produced with my Sister MADELEINE BIANCHI on a suspension bridge, that traverses a deep gulch in the Swiss Alps!
With your first step, the bridge starts to swing in the rhythm of your steps!
And with each additional step, this swinging becomes more and more intensified!
A very exciting experience!
