Pause for the cause
March 23 – May 4, 2019

Breathe in, breathe out. Now open your eyes. Slowly unfold yourself. Lift your head, stretch your limbs. Unclench your fists. You are alive. Now, light a cigarette. Behold the world. Its structures, its materials. This is your universe. You created it.

Breathing and living human beings we are. Rational animals, in an age of technology that we called upon ourselves. Gods, we want to be, creators, dreaming of ever bigger, higher, brighter. We walk up straight: our heads reaching for the skies. A laborious kind: working, aiming, building, aching. Thinking. Breathing.
