Kolmanskop, an old mining town in Namibia, is a kingdom of sand.
More than dilapidated, houses and rooms seems big hourglasses that measure absence, the unique landscape extension on the mutable skin of the desert.

I stumbled across Boreal Network many years ago. Find out only recently that she’s releasing under Jabub’s Moodgadget now. The sound reminds of Boards of Canada (which is always a good thing) and with her tunes, in a weird way, I also enjoy the craftsmanship over a refined studio production.
She only needs to hire a graphic designer/illustrator for the cover arts, they are beyond craftsmanship ;)
Lots of albums to check out, every one with great tracks in it. The one linked is her last one released in November 2013.
Without a doubt worthy of more follows, you can support Boreal Network here.
Nicole Johnson aka Boreal Network releases music also with the pseudonyms Cone Distance and Maousss.7 hearts
English photographer Andre Govia has visited hundreds of abandoned places, activating an impalpable vitality with a posthumous light.
I’m not a big fan of HDR technique, but in some of his shots it’s not an oppressive element, rather a narrative filter that gives relevance to a myriad of lost situations and souls, just faded away from the rooms, the corridors, from earthly existence.
Starry night, a comprehensive guide:
1. put yourself in a starry night;
2. use Skyguide, probabily the best app to navigate stars and constellations;
3. search, read, look as many asters as you can;
4. just breathe;
4. turn off your fucking smartphone (or kindly throw it away, if you prefer);
5. turn on your heart and your brain;
6. enjoy the Universe.
To command Nature we must be above Nature, by resistance of her attractions.
If your mind be perfectly free from all prejudice, superstition and incredulity, you will rule spirits. If you do not obey blind forces, they will obey you. If you be wise like Solomon, you will perform the works of Solomon; if you be holy like Christ, you will accomplish the works of Christ.
To direct the currents of the inconstant light, we must be established in the constant light. To command the elements, we must have overcome their hurricanes, their lightnings, their abysses, their tempests.
In order to Dare we must Know; in order to Will, we must Dare; we must Will to possess empire and to reign we must Be Silent. (E.L.)
