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.

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.

JOY ◊ XII

On the first day of the new year I find myself sitting on a beautiful dead tree in front of a 120m high waterfall that celebrates a new beginning with me. I feel. I understand.

◊ GAUA I ◊ full moon christmas

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.

Watermusic ◊ X

Endlessly they play the water with their hands, they slap and hit, they play and laugh. All day, in the shadow of the big trees, in the river or the ocean or where the two meat.

A DREAM ◊ XVI

5 weeks I spent on an island called GAUA. A wild, strong, spiritual island. It became home. This is a DREAM.

GAUA IV ◊ The Christmas Charols of Namasari

With a head full of thoughts about missionaries and sinners I find the way to my hammock. My belly is once again full with grey juice and some maniok. Sleep envelops me soon after I lie down. No dreams come to me on this night. Only heavy ideas and a deep satisfaction...

MEAT ◊ XIV

On a sunny morning the community of Bravet kill a big, white cow to sell the meat. Very colourful meat.

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.

SKTTRBRAIN ◊ VIII

Domestic violence is a present issue in many countries around the world. In Vanuatu many women, children and animals are subjected to violence on the daily basis. And they stay. They find a way to deal with it, to accept it and to still smile.

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.

Die Geschichte einer Beerdigung. Der kühle Wind streicht über meine schweißnasse Stirn. Der metallische Gesang tost in ohrenbetäubenden Wellen über die Grabeswüste. Klagende Wogen, den Verlust der Mutter und den Schmerz der Hinterbliebenen besingend, verhallen im...
