Painting the Ranzani Design Salt & Pepper Grinders is very meditative work. The focus lies on getting the colour contrasts neat.

A calm and collected environment is established by bringing order and discipline to the paint job.

Unless you’ve got pet rats! Their curiosity knows no boundaries.

Even the paint – non-toxic of course – gets examined with some funny results:

Blue rattie paw prints everywhere! 😮

Interesting piece of art. But what does it mean? Is there an explanation somewhere?

 

I don’t see any museum labels. Wait! There on the floor, is that it?

 

What does it say? I can’t read it. It’s such a small print. And on the floor! You have to kneel down to read it.

 

It says: “DISCLAIMER – Tickets are valid for 7 days from the chosen date. This ticket is not refundable.”

I’m not very often on Instagram. But I was surprised when all of a sudden a follow request popped up.

 

My profile is public, so I really couldn’t see a reason why I’m alerted if someone is following me.

 

Until I checked out the actual request:

The answer to why I have to approve a follow request.

The answer to why I have to approve a follow request.

 

Ah. Oh. Ok.

 

So Instagram alerts me as I might not want to be followed by vulgar people. I guess thanks are in order.

 

In this case however the profile seems to belong to an artist. And if it’s in the name of art, anything goes, doesn’t it.

Mommy, why did somebody draw on the doors?

 

Because it’s art. But only here at the Zeitz MOCAA, not at home!

Cape Town for free: At the Grand Public Opening of Zeitz MOCAA entry was free for the long heritage weekend.
If you hadn’t snatched up complimentary tickets online you could still get them at the museum on the day.

Queuing wasn’t bad: It went quick and was well managed. We spent the time waiting productively by browsing through the brochure about the Grand Opening Weekend.
While I had difficulties reading out aloud some of the extravagant wording it gave a good overview and interpretation of the gallery exhibitions.

The museum alone is worth a visit: The atrium shows the architectural craftsmanship that turned an industrial building into an art piece itself:
The silos are carved out half way in at various heights, revealing the skeleton of the construction, forming an organic bulb, with honeycomb sockets for elevators and staircase.

Down the spiral:

 

Turning silo into art:

Turning the silo into art at Zeitz MOCAA

A post shared by TrulyJuly (@creativecommunications) on

 

Walking through the different sections of MOCAA reminds of the Tate Modern, where you are taken from experience to experience.

But in the end what we are looking at is art, which is subject to subjectivity – you might like it or not.

From comparing MOCAA with a colonialist cathedral dazzling the illiterate with trophies to temporarily mistaking a lost ticket for an art piece’s most important museum label,
from parents’ speechlessness to children feeling at home amongst the art,
from ushers’ personal account to the curator’s contextual explanation as he mingled informally with the visitors:

The contemporary art is stimulating, triggering a reaction which turns into interaction and conversation.
The space is open and intimate enough to allow for spontaneous comment and individual reflection; it’s a bit like you can feel the art.

Or well, at least smell it!

 

Go see for yourself, free every Wednesday from 10am to 1pm for African citizens.

Since I have pet rats, salad has always been a staple addition to my ratties’ diet. I even met a pet shop owner who fed salad as a water substitute.

So to my great surprise I see iceberg salad show up in lists of ‘what not to feed your rat’. Digging a bit deeper I find the reason for this: Apparently iceberg salad has little nutritional value and consists mostly of water.

That makes it a great snacking treat!

Especially on hot days, salad is a great way to keep your ratties hydrated.

As long as they have always access to their usual complete and balanced pet food they can also eat iceberg salad.

Ratties simply love chewing salad, to the degree that they turn into salad thieves!

Watch how much rattie MJ enjoys munching away on the salad:

If you’re really concerned about nourishment, stick to more nutritional salads such as romaine or butter lettuce or go for leafy greens such as spinach or kale.

Alternatively, turn the low nutrition levels into a benefit feeding iceberg salad to ratties who need to lose a bit of weight.

Samsung Galaxy Fame: Such a crappy little phone, over 5 years old, hardly working. But still it gets stolen in South Africa.

Samsung Galaxy Fame: Such a crappy little phone, over 5 years old, hardly working. But still it gets stolen in South Africa.

 

One month ago my phone got stolen…

 

As I don’t have an SA ID number, because I’m an immigrant and am never entitled to one, I can’t get onto a contract for a new cell phone.

As I don’t have a job, because I’m an immigrant and Home Affairs is processing my visa for years all the while I’m not allowed to work, I don’t have the funds for a new mobile phone anyway.

 

So I’m phoneless!

For one month already!

I wonder if anyone noticed?

Because it’s not so bad, actually!

 

I’m not suffering from FOMO, so I’m not dependent on my phone.

Everyone who needs to get in touch with me can use email (TrulyJuly@web.de) or message me via the various social media networks.

 

So please bear with me while I’m trying to sort this… At this rate it’ll only take a couple of months longer… 😮

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
