At first I was puzzled, because "Ort" is also a word in MY mother tongue, German. But the meaning is not half as inspirating as the Dutch's. It's just "place" . . . . but to continue the game of thought association: the leftovers of your creative process can be the place to go if you want to remind yourself of that process you went through. Or why do you keep them? Photographs are also the "orts" of encountered things/ people we want to remember, right?

Orts. I got that word from a Molly Ivens commentary on public art in Texas. Public art in Texas apparently consists of large concrete bulls and big insects and ice cream cones. She pronounced art ort for the purposes of the commentary and I later found out that ort is a dutch word for leftovers like table scraps. This delights me as I think of the things I make, art objects, as leftovers of the creative act/process. What I make are Orts. Coincidentally there is a large cloud of debris circling the sun beyond Pluto that some think may be the leftovers from the creation of the solar system called the Oort cloud. My orts are like that: leftovers circling my life after the creation of my being.

Hi all. In a cave indeed, full of drill presses and power saws, noise and squirting waters. I guess it worked, the Orts came back.
