A German Photographer Builds 9 Massive Waves of Deadwood in a Forest Near Hamburg

Jörg Gläscher is a German photographer, working in the field of documentary photography and photojournalism.
Just like many of us, his life was greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. However, despite the governmental and personal restrictions, he decided to take matters into his own hands and got creative. Ever since then, Jörg has been working about the pure power of nature which brings one of the richest country in the world to a completely still stand.

He has been creating a visual diary he calls the C19,1-20, The Diary Complex. It contains 20 different pieces of Jörg’s work, ranging from photography to sculpture. And one of its latest work has been quite popular all over the internet.

Below you can see some of Jörg’s mesmerizing waves, and read some additional information which the artist has personally shared with EarthWonders.

Jörg Gläscher decided to spend his pandemic time in a forest near Hamburg to create a series of artistic installations.

“So I went into a forest near Hamburg and all these waves are build by myself, from November 2020 till March 2021. In total 9 different waves. I only use what we call dead wood, I didn’t cut a single tree.” said Jörg

“The largest, No. 8, is nearly 4 meters high and 9 meters wide. After I took the picture I destroyed it to build a new one from the material.” explained the artist.

“A wave is a periodic oscillation or one-time disturbance change in the state of a system,” claimed the artist.
From small undulating waves to massive four-meter-tall crests, each installation appears to grow from the ground, displaying the immense power nature can have.

“Observations are manifold, individual, not directly trans- ferable and can be experienced in many different ways.
A perceived object can generate impact in numerous ways. Is it standing still? Has it moved? Nothing is ever as
it seems.

“Are appearances therefore deceptive?” pondered Jörg. “No, they are not necessarily deceptive, but they join me on a journey, wash over me, swirl through me, make me anxious, retreat, and then rush towards me all over again. „But that can’t be” says the left, “but I see and feel it“ says the right half of my brain.”

“I can go through them, stop them, touch them, but everything comes to a standstill and goes no further. I have to let it go. Standing up, the second wave rolls over me,” explains the artist. “It is unique, it was unique. I lift my head, take it by the hand and recognize the vibration and the recurring sensation, and with it the fear disappears. Should it come, I will be ready.”

Although Jörg hasn’t reveal yet the location of the waves, visionary explorers might still discover them hidden somewhere in the woods around Hamburg.

Grow Blue Java Bananas Which Taste Just Like Vanilla Ice Cream

Have you ever found the usual bananas in your grocery store to be a little, well, bland? You’re not the only one. Banana lovers in last years have begun flocking to richer alternatives like the Blue Java banana which is grown in many parts of Asia, Australia and Hawaii. The unripe fruit takes on a greenish-silver-blue hue due to its wax coating, hence the name. Its white flesh contains black seeds, which isn’t exactly common for a dessert banana.

It’s also widely known as the “Ice Cream” banana for its sweet and soft flesh, which bears a similarity in taste to vanilla custard or ice cream. Not only do these blue bananas taste like vanilla ice cream but they also contain a lot of nutrients making them a very healthy and nutritious snack. You can eat the ripe banana raw. Others suggest mixing it into a smoothie with peanut butter or doing the old trick of freezing and blending the bananas to make an all-natural ice-cream.

Options for acquiring the Blue Java outside of Asia and the South Pacific are limited. You can purchase the banana in bulk from this Florida-based company. For our friends in Hawaii: Several local growers cultivate the Ice Cream banana, so scout out farmers’ markets on the big island and Oahu. But if you don’t want to spend a fortune shipping bananas or traveling to Hawaii, you can always try purchasing a tree and planting one in your own backyard or even indoors. Unlike other bananas, Blue Java can even survive colder climates.

Hence, check out the gallery below and let us know if you find them tasty!
