The Zauberlehrling by Inges Idee

View all 5 Photos

A power tower in a groove that describes our future, strikes a pose in wave form in an open field of Oberhausen, Germany. What will become of such idols of our earths undoing? Will they forever mock us obstructing our skylines, interrupting our meadows as they unravel issues pertaining to climate change and energy transition in revelation to our future. Overcome by the intensity of electric current the tower curls up and twists about, even though its instillation hosts no connective wires. An inspiration from the spirit of Goethe’s “sorcerer’s Apprentice” in disobedience of the apprentice.
It was developed by the Inges Idee group of artists, which was founded in 1992 by Hans Hemmert, Axel Lieber, Thomas A. Schmidt and Georg Zey in Berlin. The Zauberlehrling has been erected in Oberhausen and is one of many works of art showcased at the international EMSCHERKUNST exhibition. The exhibition accompanies one of the largest nature regeneration projects in Europe in the northern Ruhr region until 2020.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
