A nun with carrots and what to do?

There was quiet a silent period for the rabbits.
This summer in Helsinki I came to the point some really interesting things were happening. But behind my back of course and I don’t have a camera crew to follow.
So I felt stuck in the project.
I see people with their phones taking pictures of me, pretending they are not.
And then this nun shows up from behind me and starts running towards me with the carrots.
It had nothing to with me but the coincidence was so big and the combination (me and the rabbit) and her with the carrots was super.
But we could not capture it.
So I’ am left a little clue less what to do next to make it all work.

Rabbit/ art on the move reunion in Düsseldorf,

The nice thing about this project is you meet new people.
Sometimes you keep in touch.
And some times you have an opportunity to see them.

Last weekend I had the wonderful option to meet one of the first rabbit art on the move joiners Merryn Kritzinger.
She lives in Montreal (Canada) and I live in Delft (Netherlands).

Yesterday she performed with Cas Public the dance company were she works in Düsseldorf (Germany).
So we stepped in the car and drove to Düsseldorf.
Besides seeing each other we had the bonus to see her perform on stage.

Social networks and my Art

After sharing the rabbit blog with my atelier and workshop information it is time to move on.

The rabbit blog is for the rabbit project and the people who have an art adventure rabbit.  They join the experiment how art, social networks and travelling all over the planet can lead to a new approach for art owners and art presentations and that deserves an own platform.

After trying different setting on the Internet I like the blog format better as my website and I also love my online portfolio magazine.
So from now on rabbits on the rabbit blog and the atelier work on

I started this” Art on the move project” with free rabbit artworks. Ionica Smeets gave 2 fun lectures about networks on youtube with one of the art rabbits.
The theory worked she activated her network and over the 1000 viewers watched my youtube site. That is fun, but now the next step:  Besides viewers connect with new customers. But how? Can social media do that also?

Mostly I’ am a little confused by all the social media networks. People talk a lot about how big their network is, and sometimes I wonder if everybody is more into collecting connections like my own old stamp collection. It is very rarely that people tell, how their work benefits from the social networks and what they are doing.

Since free rabbits disappear too fast they are up for sale and sponsorships.
Price €125, - + Shipping costs. Saatchi online galleries has the premiere 

There are always rabbits up for sale in my atelier and you can make an appointment to view my work. You are very welcome life or virtual.

Film festival and Chinese New Year

This morning 10.05 Rotterdam Film festival.

While we were waiting for the film to start a guy filming himself with a cuddly animal (cat??) entered but he was too far down on a seat to ask him what he was doing.

I thought about my rabbitartonthemoveproject and wanted to talk to him. We had to leave fast for the start of the Chinese New Year in The Hague. Now I left a message on the wall from the festival who knows cat meets rabbits project coming up ???

Preparing for the year of the rabbit

Mmm so much information about this rabbit year I choose the most positive story. I have no clue what to do myself with my rabbits. But maybe a rabbit year provides some clarity. And a lot of fun.

2011 is the Year of the Golden Rabbit, which begins on February 3, 2011 and ends on January 22, 2012. The Rabbit is a lucky sign. Rabbits are private individuals and a bit introverted. People born in the Year of the Rabbit are reasonably friendly individuals who enjoy the company of a group of good friends. They are good teachers, counselors and communicators, but also need their own space.

According to Chinese tradition, the Rabbit brings a year in which you can catch your breath and calm your nerves. It is a time for negotiation. Don't try to force issues, because if you do you will ultimately fail. To gain the greatest benefits from this time, focus on home, family, security, diplomacy, and your relationships with women and children. Make it a goal to create a safe, peaceful lifestyle, so you will be able to calmly deal with any problem that may arise.

Not many people know that the Rabbit is the symbol of the Moon, while the Peacock is the symbol of the Sun, and that together, these two animal signs signify the start of day and night, represent the Yin and Yang of life. It is said that anyone making supplications for wishes to be fulfilled are certain to get what they want... and in the Year of the Rabbit, the wish-granting aspect of the Sun and the Moon combined is multiplied. The Moon is YIN and this is the Yin of Heaven, signifying magic. Thus on each of the Full Moon nights of this year, go out into your garden to gaze into the Full Moon and visualize plenty of Moon dust and Moon glow flowing into you, filling your whole body with bright white light and granting you fearlessness, love and courage. This will not only strengthen your inner "Chi" energy, it will also bring wisdom into your life.
