LONG TIME NO TALK.

I know, I haven‘t said much for quite a while … I would like to share my new page with you. I will continue to show my work on my new responsive website and I would like to announce my new blog – my journal – with insights in my (Melbourne) design life ...

This is going to be my last post on this blog but I‘ll give you a little appetizer sneak peak of some recent projects I‘ve done anyway. For further details and to browse through the whole projects please visit www.sarahmachtsachen.com.

What A ChristMess!!

Christmas time – supposed to be a wonderful contemplative time – turns into the most stressful part of the year for many people. 
What a ChristMess!!
Are you hosting a Christmas-party this year? I would like to supply a little "survival kit" for all my friends, followers and fans. 
No matter if you celebrate during the hot-steamy summer or crispy-cold winter – just choose the kit which is suitable for your festivities depending where you and your beloved are based. 

The packs include a shopping list to get organized, a menu, double sided wrap paper, name tags for your presents, greeting cards 
and a banderole if you want to give away some wine. Folks, relax, for gods sake, it's Christmas! Enjoy yourself! Have fun! 
I wish you a fancy time and love ... lots of love. Warm regards, Sarah

E N D U R A N C E

Artwork inspired by a quotation of the sailor, captain and author 
Józef Teodor Nałęcz Konrad Korzeniowski better known as Joseph Conrad.
»Let them think what they liked, but I didn't mean to drown myself. 
I meant to swim till I sank – but that's not the same thing.«
.
»Sollten Sie doch denken, was Sie wollten.
Ich hatte nicht die Absicht mich umzubringen. 
Ich hatte die Absicht, so lange zu schwimmen, bis ich unterging. 
Aber das war nicht dasselbe.«


{Joseph Conrad. 1857 – 1924}

The picture shows a brave indian with his faithful horse. Guess, who is the horse … )

What is the worst catastrophe in your life?


free art projekt | photography: New Zealand, 2007 | abstract

I spent 6 months in New Zealand. Although I worked in an advertising agency I had enough time to explore this wonderful country. During this time I met a lot of people. Almost 100 of them helped me realize this project. I took photos of them and after that I asked them about the worst catastrophe in their life. It´s not easy to answer this question … but to ask for the worst situation in somebodys life isn´t either.
The result of the collection of disasters and bad experiences is that everything happens for a reason and that every down in a human life is followed by an up. In summary, it´s fair to say that you obviously cannot look inside a person and it´s hard to meet each other without prejudices. With this project I got a lot of answers I didn´t expect and I learnt a lot from these people even about myself. 
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED ME TO REALISE THIS VERY PERSONAL PROJECT. (In this abstract: Steve, Christine, Michael, Fiona, Gavin, Frances, Climaxx & Brian.)
