HORIZON
Monday, 30 March 2009

horizon.jpgI regularly surprise people with my name: Kim is a common name for Chinese men. And then they meet me: a 2 meter tall and skinny redhead. It's not easy to be anonymous. I often joke that Dutch people are all tall, 'you know, when the water is coming, we still need to breathe…'. I could also say that I need my height to look beyond. Because 'kim' actually means horizon.

 
ANT THEORY
Monday, 23 March 2009

A university is like a factory of words and scholars come up with the funniest theories. Like ANT theory or Actor Network Theory which was introduced to me by my friend Nicholas. The first night we met, Nicholas unraveled the secrets behind this theory to me. I didn't understand much of it until he gave the example of his own PhD research. Nicholas is a fervent free skier and studies the free ski community here in Switzerland. When he misses a seminar, we always know he is doing 'ethnographic work' in the mountains. I've missed a chance this winter to see him jumping acrobatic moves while talking to his little tape recorder high on the slopes.

As a consumer, I have a lot of ‘daily’s’. Daily coffee, daily bread, daily yoga, daily chocolate etc. These needs scream for attention and like to be fulfilled. I indulge myself in these ‘daily’s'. My (bad) habits and not necessarily needed to satisfy ‘needs’. Recently a new ‘daily’ came into my life. My daily walk on the bridge!

INDIA
Written by Sandra Castaņeda Elena - Sunday, 01 March 2009

india.jpgFour things I learned today from Indian organic cotton farmers:

‘Bhramasthiram’ literally means ‘missile’ in Tamil, but is also the name of one of the most effective bio-pesticides used by Indian farmers under ‘cow centric farming’, also known as ‘zero budget farming’ -it is actually also zero waste farming, let’s talk to William McDonough about that.
