Pup Pok. @Components – Creative Minds and Social Media.

I have not seen her in a while. I forgot where she is, lives and works right now. I well remember her face. Components by  Munich based photographer Simone Naumann is such a lovely project, so light and easy, but yet with tightly woven structure, that I mailed it out to many many people. I lost track to whom. And than, I saw her again. The “digital image” as part of a “physical picture” is what Simone Naumann promises in her work. I’m not sure that she thought of a meta-physical as well.

Many people from all over the globe took part in components. And still take part. The image grows. You can stroll down the memory lane in Components, you can search by country or find writers or painters. No PR, no self-selling, no biographies. A one liner as simple as brief, a head shot, the occupation, place and date. And a link, to discover more about each and anyone who caught your eye.

My friend  Pup Pok sat right there. With her hat. And her long hair, brown or grey. Impossible to tell if she has a moustache. She said:

Im Wald begegne ich einemWolf,  in seinem Maul liegen alle meine geliebten Menschen. Ich klettere ins Maul des Wolfes und flüstere ihm zu: “Die Trennung von ihnen kann ich nicht rückgängig machen, ich kann sie nur für mich nutzen. Also richte ich mich auf und nehme ihn mit auf meinen Weg.

I’ll try to make that an English one – but some double meanings will be lost:

In the forest I encounter a wolf, in his mouth lying all my beloved people. I climb in the wolf’s mouth and whisper to him: “The separation from them I can not turn back. I can only use it for me.” So I straightened up and took him with me on my way.

How much I enjoy to browse briefly all new faces and thoughts and ideas of the fast growing crowd each evening! Will I meet people there I lost a long way back? If yes, I can straighten up and take the wolf with me on my way.

Mornings, brains & Courgette Tartelettes

Does it make me a happier person to know I am linked now to 610,812+ professionals? Oh and: my profile has been viewed by 8 people in the past 90 days…wait a second…hm…that makes: roughly a bit more than one out of 100.000 professionals interested in whatever they find on those professional networking platforms such as linkedin and xing about Sanne Kurz. Probably a bit less than one in 100.000 if you do not count the mislead clicks and the kids playing around when people went out leaving their computer on. – A while back I invited in an attempt to send Christmas wishes by accident all my email contacts including teachers of my kids and ex-landlords to join my networks…those were for sure my last social network Chrissie wishes…I promise!!

The little German flag above the linkedin window is sitting there coz of all the äöüß on my German Site.

I spend roughly 3 hours every morning doing office stuff. Such as answering mails and clicking yes, yes, yes on social networking platforms. When I am not shooting that is. I wonder if it is of any use. Office stuff. All this time spent.

I spend roughly 3 hours every day preparing food, cooking, cleaning up after meals. This for sure is of heavenly use.  – You can see the difference when you lift your head, eyes, ears and nose in the morning and look at things. Lucky eyes, ears and nose are attached to the same thing and we only have to lift once to make much more use instantly of several senses…sensational…I like.

Was it a cat I saw?

Maybe I should swap jobs and start work as a cook? What would you rather buy: The image of the Mini-Quiches above or the Mini-Tartelettes themselves?

Oh, I’ll place a poll here…I never did…will be fun! Vote!
