ISSUE 021-08:




Quite exactly four years ago I gave a description of a large fallow in the suburb Hemelingen.

  A few days ago I revisited that place.

I firstly climbed one of the noise barriers, which separates the fallow from the nearby railroad track. I saw that pathes, tracks, which had been made up, and a narrow asphalt street ran through the fallow.

  I saw a factory building at the edge of the fallow. There were two wind turbines in the far distance.

I turned a little bit to the right. My eyes fell on an area, which was only sparsely overgrown with grass.

  To the right of that area a church rose, which had been built in the late 19th century or in the early 20th century.
When I kept on turning to the right, commercial functional buildings came into my field of vision. In the distance, I saw the big coal and gas-fired power station in the suburb Hastedt.

  That power station is also located in an industrial area. (also see visual axis from Frauenburger Weg to the power station Hastedt

When I threw a glance at the ground, I saw some disposable forks and a paper napkin. Apart from that I saw almost no rubbish.

  When I climbed an other section of the noise barrier, I saw a small heap of flints, somebody had hoarded.

I noticed the numerous little trees and shrubs, which defied the elements on this embankment.

  Behind the 'summit' I saw the stacks of the nearby factory.

The fallow is also a dog run. The pathes are short cuts between neighbouring districts.

  On this pathes some people took the time to chat.

About eighteen months ago I had taken this photograph of a hoarding at the edge of the fallow. An important advertising message had been, that developable plots were up to sale in this area 'as of now'.

  A few days ago I took this photograph of the hoarding.

The international poster organisation Loesje has started a project to train young people from all over Europe and Asia in how to organise and coordinate information campaigns about the Millennium Development Goals.
