Istallation: mixed media, text, video and sound
I open my eyes so the world can get in
first as a stream, then in waves
which I admire on my feet, at their highest point –
corrupt balance of vigor and fragility
reaches the shore and nobody makes use of it.
Winter wave advances to the point of invisibility
losing light of reflection, of foam.
I sit to look at it.
“You don’t realize the immensity of the world until you cross the ocean by boat” – he tells.
I press the pencil against the sheet
and the letter becomes volume:
to write it, energy is required
to read it, light is not needed
to understand it, just focus.
I put my eyes away
and like a short circuit extinguished with water
a different nature of enlightenment
