VOIIAGE

experimental journeys

A free, experimental multimedia project providing

a platform for stories and art from around the world.

Born into existence in 2014 it slowly expands and deepens the forms of expression it presents. It is a place where the space between pictures, sound, words and time is born, explored, captured and broken.

Here various forms of art come together to create vivid, modern, aesthetic collaborations, all freely accessible. The creation process becomes more collaborative as more people get involved. The vision is a decentralised, collaborative, worldwide network of artists, traveling storytellers and designers working together to create free, inspiring, aesthetic and well-produced content for everyone. 

To keep the project free and accesible to as many people as possible it is completely financed through donations on a pay-as-you-like basis.

AN EXPLORATION OF A NEW KIND OF MUSIC GATHERING.

||| Tehran |||

A soft wind blows through the leaves. It touches my sweat dripping forehead. Sorrow floats through the desert of graves, a metallic cry for the lost mother and the pain of the ones left alone spirals towards the endlessly blue sky. Not a single cloud is in sight.

The Wilhelm Scream

Enough with goodness and niceness and everything sweet give me salt, give me ash, give me sand in my teeth dirt on my feet blood on my tongue life in my meat.

The Christmas Charols of Namasari ◊ IV

Every year around Christmas time the church choirs tour along the main road of the north-east side of Gaua Island. They sing songs in Bislama and the local language about Baby Jesus and god, old english church songs adapted for the islands.

Pig Joys (Poem) ◊ II

Pigs traditionally have an important role in Vanuatu’s kastom system. They are one of the few animals that have not been imported by the Europeans. A poem for these wonderful animals.

AVER ◊ Christmas Songs ◊ VI

My head is full of streams of thoughts about the disappearing island life and cultural genocides. I slowly fade into a deep, dreamful sleep. Responsibility and powerlessness fight their endless game.

Uncontrolled Anger ◊ VII

Violence, the raw physical force intended to hurt or kill a person or an animal is committed daily, endless times around the world. The cycle of hurt and anger spins and spins. But why do we hurt others? And how can we stop it from spinning?

Breath.

Slowly the wind is picking up and everyone starts making breakfast of course. As our sails and steering dont break anymore, I feel we are slowly arriving in proper sailing mode. Cruising, reading, working the boat, eating and sleeping. Kat makes oats with dates,...

full moon christmas ◊ I

Every night the people of Vanuatu indulge in a ritual, they give themselves into the hands of a numbing root that grows up in the mountainous regions. Silently they drink the grey juice and connect with the sprits of the bush, their ancestors.

All Good Fruit ◊ XI

A children’s song heard in Musina Village on Vanua Lava.

Black Magic ◊ V

After having spent Christmas morning in the Anglican Church of Aver my thoughts are circling around the churches influence on the people here. Somehow I can only see the negative side and it leaves a lingering sadness on my tongue that doesn’t want to vanish. Part two.
