"nihil est in intellectu quod non antea fuerit in sensu" is
what Aristotle said, when he ment, that nothing is in mind,
which hasn´t been in our senses before.

This is what I felt, when I visited this hidden and inspiring place
of Dieter and Lieselotte Mastall .
It´s located in the very north of germany, where no one will
expect a place like this...mystic, spherical, lovely, creative
and full of art...a place like an enchanted forest.

The place is called "Waldsteinskulpturenpark" which means
something like "stonescultpured forest" and is built by
Dieter and Lieselotte, together with their children in (and since) 1980.

Joseph Beuys calls something like this a "social sculpture"
and as "everybody is an artist", they built this park as a holistic artwork
to bring people together, connecting them, irrespective of their nature,
culture, language and skin color.

In 2 hours I tried to catch every tiny detail, capturing the mood,
the spirituality and this unbelievable peace...calming...moony.

I´m very glad to have met Dieter and Lieselotte, who inspired me
and who are able to give back hope, strength and power.

Therefore I wanna say: Thank you!

I dedicate this small movie to their son Sibo, who passed away in a very young age a few years ago.

If you guys are in germany...visit this place and feel, what I felt! It´s worth it!
