(Sounddatei weiter unten /soundfile below)

After a long night out, after a stressful day, searching for a loved one lost, I’ve found myself at the Court of Peace. Sitting, staring, writing, and pondering, I have travelled the many small avenues and winding paths. Through that contemplation. I have discovered a lot about my past and present, about the place that I now call home. The Hauptfriedhof has been a place that shows the circles of life and death we experience every day. The names and dates that have a beginning and an end paralleled with the life that seems to thrive inside and outside its borders.


I’d like to allow you a glimpse into my innerthoughts, my perspective this Court has never asked for. To give the observer another story to this place that has existed in Kassel far longer than any of us and the history it can tell us about our present and perhaps our future.
