opening


 
  
     




Stralsund is a very old town with a lot of churches. The "Meeresmuseum" is located in an old monastery. I think a whale skelletton instead of an altar with a dead men hanging on a cross is a fantastic idea.
I am very happy that my collages arrived in an oceanographic museum - plastic litter is not really a nice subject. But it belongs there. The last two pictures are from a church from around 1250 with a lot of italian flair - it has not been renovated yet and has this wonderful morbide athmosphere. After renovation they will all get this dead and hostile touch.
