a preview edit of the first sequel of a series of five. produced end of 2020, it’s the by-product of a photographic work eusepia lehe did for a grant. so video shooting was rather quick & dirty. – sooo dirty, look at this grain:) only light source was the moon. exposed already 360°, once around the shutter wheel. motion blurs. boundaries dissolve (and that indeed looks much better, almost pleasing, before it gets squashed by the youtube compressor. at least the grain is sharp and tight in the offline master file); but that’s life: dark at night. no clear vision; trust your ears, trust your scent! because the editing process is on ice, i’ve chosen to upload this one anyhow, since the finish line might be ten years away … – if ever reached …
no money, no time … – you know this mundane affliction);
in any case, the subject was the epidemic, which was still a very hot issue at the time. eusepia targeted social distancing. for my part, in “fever harvest” i took the liberty of contrasting it with another topic that was just as pressing at the time, especially in germany, but completely underexposed in the media. particularly if one considers that our handling of it was (and still is) so completely different: the individual counts for nothing, vaccination is done with a leaden bullet. no noteworthy efforts to deal with the very unpleasant african swine fever on a medical level. i understand that – who should pay for this crazy undertaking?! but to kill masses of healthy wild animals to protect the sales of the pig fattening industry is quite a special kind of health care. fortunately, the measures against covid-19 were not that bad. because we value everyone’s right to integrity and love life.
eine oszillatorische Annäherung an Konzepte wie Seele und Insektensterben
Dazu zwei weiterführende Punkte:
zur Seele: glaub, was du willst …
zum Insektensterben: handle!!
Dass die Situation recht kritisch ist, sollte kaum jemandem entgangen sein; falls doch, hier nochmal eine Zusammenfassung zum Thema: “Der globale Insektenzusammenbruch” https://www.spektrum.de/kolumne/der-globale-insektenzusammenbruch/1611020 Wer schon alles weiß, sollte trotzdem auch die “Fünf Tipps für den Insektenschutz daheim” am Ende des Artikels beachten. Und da ist neben dem “Warten auf die Politik” noch ein wichtiger sechster Punkt, den viele ungern hören und verdrängen: kauft “Bio”! ( bio(s), griechischer Wortstamm βίος „Leben“:)
