”Oneness” Ida Bentinger

Material: Linen fabric

Land Art projekt: http://lupanica.it/2017/09/09/bentinger/

We humans tend to differentiate ourselves from nature. We think that we are something different, something superior and more valuable than nature. And in many ways we are different from animals and plants. But it is also true, that we are a part of nature and that our disconnection from it, is not only destroying our planet, it has also a serious effects on our health. We are depending on the nature to survive and the nature is depending on our recognition of this fact. Let’s all try to remember and connect to our origin before it it to late,  so we can stop destroying out mother planet.

In a leaf we can see the same fractal patterns  as that we have in our human veins.  The fractals for me is a symbol of the universal connection of all living things on the planet. I’ts the mysterious secret code; that of creation.

I wanted to create a symbol of a human heart and connect it to the treas in the forest.   They are all handmade by me, sewn by hand, in linen fabric. The veins are stuffed by raw linen. The hearts are made as pillows. And are stuffed in the middle with leafs and earth from the the ground in the area. They will grow gently on the teas in the forest. Blending with the ”real” nature but stand out as a alien object in the woods. Just as us humans. With time I hope, the nature will start to grow on, and inside them. Integrate them more and more to the nature, so that the connection between this ”human heart” and the plants becomes nearly as one.

”The sculptures are made by hand and it takes a long time to do it. The technology itself is very easy, it just requires patience. For me, the sculpture symbolize life itself. How we have to take one step at a time to reach our goals. It’s about having faith in what you do. If you just trust life you will create something beautiful. Namely your life story.”

”Emotion is only – energy in motion. Like the waves of the sea that change in shape, lines and beat, we can only know the true nature of water if we dive deep. What happens on the surface has everything to do with external circumstances and the underlying obstacles. I believe people’s emotions are a lot like waves, the ocean in motion”/ Ida Bentinger
