Javakade lamonggracht

Javakade lamonggracht
Made by kees hoogeveen
Amsterdam by night, brug Javaeiland Architect: Paul Wittemans Artist: Rombouts, Guy en Droste, Monica Street: Javaeiland Material: Steel Jaar van plaatsing: 1994 Nine Bridges, Javaeiland. De bridges are called art, image, idea, word, education, society, light, conscience and science Omschrijving: Negen bruggen: 2 over de Brantasgracht, 2 over de Lamonggracht, 3 over de Majanggracht en 2 over de Seranggracht. Het Javaeiland staat bekend om zijn opvallende architectuur. Vooral de architectuur langs de smalle grachten die het eiland doorsnijden springen in het oog. Dit wordt nog eens extra versterkt door de negen bruggetjes die speciaal voor het eiland ontworpen zijn door het Belgische kunstenaarspaar Rombouts – Droste. Elke brug heeft een eigen thema, een woord: idee, image, word, wetenschap, enseignement, society, kunst, conscience en light. Rombouts – Droste ontwikkelde een eigen alfabet, het Azart-alfabet, een beeldschrift waarin elke letter wordt gesymboliseerd door een lijn en een kleur (bv.: C van curve en van citroengeel). Deze kronkelende lijnen vormen een woord. De letters zijn uitgevoerd in staal en vormen samen de leuningen van de bruggen. De leuningen van de bruggen zijn grillig van vorm. De letters zouden ook nog verschillende kleuren krijgen, maar Paul Wittemans (de architect van de bruggen) vond dat te speelgoedachtig. Alle bruggen zijn nu zwart.

Pictures taken on Java-Eiland in Amsterdam, which underwent major renovation and residential buildings have been erected. The text on the wall states You never catch sight of me there where I see you in five different languages, such as Dutch and English. Five more langauges are shown in the hallway next to this one, as seen on . In the background, the IJ can be seen, a water from where you can go anywhere.

Pedestrian bridge at Java-eiland

Pedestrian bridge at Java-eiland
Made by jurjen_nl
Pictures taken on Java-Eiland in Amsterdam, which underwent major renovation and residential buildings have been erected. This iron pedestrian bridge across this new canal requires some climbing. Reason for this is the bridge is situated halfway the canal, where the quayside is relatively low. A 'flat' bridge wouldn't allow for enough space for boats to go under it.

2010-43 Concrete jungle at home
Made by Birgitta Seegers
This is the view from my desk at home and also the reason why I think it's a bad thing to stay home too much. It would make me feel locked up in this concrete anonymous jungle. I live on my own in this apartment (since two years) and sometimes it feels like a holiday; enjoyable but after a while you're looking forward to go back home. But where is home?

2010-48 Memories
Made by Birgitta Seegers
I stopped making printed photo albums of my travels in 2007. Bad thing about it is that I tend to forget names and occasions quite easily and it helps writing them down in albums (luckily I have a very good memory for faces). On the other hand I hardly grab my photo albums to have a look at them. Locked up memories.

Made by Birgitta Seegers
The IJhallen flea market in Amsterdam North has proven to be a great place to buy second hands clothes. For €18,- I bought myself a whole new summer outfit. I like the idea of reusing stuff that is still usable. www.ijhallen.nl

Amsterdam, 20060201. In the canal, the boats are tucked away under their covers, fast asleep. This is a canal 2.0: a part of the completely modernized Java island in the Eastern Docklands. They dug the canals in the year 2000 and built modern neo canal houses.

Waiting in the icy wind at the bus stop in front of my house to go to work. Behind me at the river IJ there was a ship with the name Polar Express, applicable to the circumstances. It's the climate that makes me want to escape The Netherlands.
