Immer am Wochenende (Bleiben wir realistisch: soweit möglich.) gibt es hier einen Sammelpost mit allem, was es nicht zu einem eigenen Artikel gebracht hat. Das ist mal mehr, mal weniger. Mal gucken, wie’s klappt.

Einfach nur ein paar schöne Türen.
During a visit last month, I became obsessed with doors. They came in all sizes, shapes, colors, and states of disrepair. Each of the weather-beaten portals, many of which open directly onto the water, seemed to have a story to tell from many years serving their masters.

For the past 30 years, Wang De has been practicing the ancient art of Da Shuhua, a 500-year-old tradition that first began with blacksmiths in the Nunquan village of China. Wanting a way to celebrate Chinese New Year, but without the means to afford traditional fireworks, these blacksmiths devised a new form of entertainment. By tossing molten iron against the walls, they created beautiful showers of sparks, beginning a practice that would soon become a part of their cultural heritage. Now, it’s a special part of Nuanquan’s legacy as there’s no place else on Earth to witness the fiery spectacle.
Chi-Tien Lui is an electrical engineer and technician whose craft has evolved to the realm of high art. Born in China, he trained as a technician in Taiwan before moving into the U.S. and setting up his own shop in downtown Manhattan in 1969. During this time, televisions began to evolve and video became an important part of the experimental art scene, especially for big players like Andy Warhol and John Lennon. But, over time, wear and tear and years sitting in museums can cause machinery to fail, which means the potential of losing priceless art forever. That’s where Chi-Tien Lui comes in. He’s become the go-to guy for institutions like the Smithsonian and MoMA to preserve these legendary electronics.
