Maisons Médiévales de Paris – Un Itinéraire

fr-airship(Article in English here)

Quelques semaines plus tôt, je me demandai où se trouvaient les plus anciennes maisons de Paris. Je décidai de marcher de maison en maison sans convenir d’un parcours clair par avance mais de noter au fur et à mesure les endroits, objets ou atmosphères que je découvrirais en chemin. Pas vraiment une dérive situationniste, mais un petit peu de psychogéographie tout de même…

Je ne listai que 5 maisons car il ne reste plus grand chose du (très) vieux Paris. Cette ville date essentiellement du 19ème siècle, puisque Haussmann changea quasiment complètement son aspect entre 1852 et 1870.

Paris Medieval Houses – A Route

EN(En français ici)

A few weeks ago, I wondered where were the oldest houses in Paris. I decided to walk from house to house, not to settle on a clear path beforehand but to note what other places, things or atmospheres I would discover on the sidelines – not really a Situationist drift (Dérive), but I had psychogeography in mind.

My list mentioned 5 houses only, since there is not much left of old Paris. Paris is mostly a 19th century city, as Haussmann nearly completely changed its aspect from 1852 to 1870.

Dear All,

The Potential Airship and I wish you a wonderful New Year!

I want to thank all my followers and readers, I really enjoyed working on OuZePo in 2014 and will try to write some more in 2015.

I’ve decided to try to take care of my Internet garden, so I’ve groomed my Youtube channel. There’s not much yet, but I’ve created a playlist dedicated to the videos I’ve shared on OuZePo and another one for my professional presentations. I’ve also created a Twitter account to share my posts and interesting finds.

In 2014, I also had the opportunity to travel a lot, for business trips and holidays, and I managed to tick some boxes on my “to see/to do/to visit” wish list. Here are some highlights:

fr-airshipChers tous,

Le Zeppelin Potentiel et moi vous souhaitons une excellente nouvelle année !

Je tiens à remercier toutes les personnes qui me suivent et qui me lisent. J’ai beaucoup aimé écrire pour OuZePo en 2014 et j’espère continuer ainsi en 2015.

J’ai décidé de prendre soin de mon jardin en ligne, donc j’ai commencé par remanier ma chaîne Youtube. Il n’y a certes pas grand chose encore, mais j’ai créé une playlist afin de répertorier les vidéos partagées sur OuZePo et une autre avec mes présentations professionnelles. J’ai aussi ouvert un compte Twitter pour partager mes articles et mes découvertes.

En 2014, j’ai eu l’opportunité de voyager, professionnellement et personnellement, ce qui m’a permis de réaliser quelques rêves. Voici un petit calendrier visuel :

Zen / Un-Zen

ENKyoto is bursting with gardens, some of them being Zen rock gardens. I was quite thrilled to go to Ryoan-ji (picture on the right), but unfortunately the meditation mood was dampened by giggling schoolchildren taking selfies in front of the garden and noisy tourists berating themselves: “Don’t look at your feet, look at the rocks!”

However, 40 minutes away from Ryoan-ji, the Daisen-In (drawing on the left) is everything a rock garden should be. Quite derserted, thus much less stressful, some explanations were provided to fully enjoy the garden and temple buildings. As pictures and drawings are not allowed during the visit, I drew the Ocean of Eternity on the plane. It is also a significant place for Japanese tea ceremony development. While visiting the Daitoku-ji, to which Daisen-In belongs, I strongly recommend eating Shojin Ryori at Izusen restaurant!
