Jørgen Teller from Denmark stayed at the ResidenceSEA in April 2017. Due to the location of the ResidenceSEA, there is the constant sound of the sea entered. This sound entered his dreams, which Jørgen translated into fantastic electronic music, which he performed at the end of his stay at the BlowUp Bar in Heraklion.
In March 2017, Brazilian poet Rafa Carvalho came to the ResidenceSEA in Heraklion. His project is focused on the sea, so we had lots to talk about. At the end of his stay he made an amazing and long performance. Rafa took all of us in the audience on a travel with an old sailor, on a travel of life, on a travel into the stories of the sea. It was a truly beautiful evening.
In February 2017, Łukasz Krupski came to the ResidenceSEA to research on the connection of Greek mythology and contemporary culture. He is a young and very talented sculptor from Warsaw, Poland. After his interactive performance, Spin the Wheel, a nonprofit organization raising money for schools in Africa, presented their project and continued the evening with a great Funk beat party.
Recently, when the winter took a small break, I went with a friend to explore the world as seen from the top of the Venetian Walls in Heraklion. There is so much to see even at night. This will be an ongoing series over the next few months.
Tonight I finally managed to go out and have a good look at the supermoon .. But then also the clouds wanted to be on stage and they did well, since I got some beautiful pictures of the supermoon with clouds.
The ResidenceSEA is not only a place that inspires the artists that come to stay and work, but also it inspires me – every time I go there. It is so close the sea, to the water, and sometimes the waves touch the windows. Then there is this wonderful light all day long and the big space inside. Beyond all that I love what we are doing as a volunteer team at the ResidenceSEA. Now, this is the place where to leave some pictures that I have taken around our fantastic ResidenceSEA.
