NO COURSE TO THE INTERIOR SPACE
We can’t fly, we can’t dance tight, we can’t play with strangers. The outside has filled with limits, the world shrunk. Someone closely talking and laughing can kill us. Large cities, unable to practice cultural life, are transformed into giant, empty villages. The artist’s job is to discover new worlds, changing the one that exists. Now, something almost invisible is doing it without asking for permission. We can’t physically travel far, we can travel inside us. Interior neglected by the excess of stimuli that arrive from the matrix. Traveling through our minds, a landscape without horizon. It is time for small actions, reflection and change. We can use uncertainty as a driver. The Tao says: A happy man is one who accepts his circumstance and renounces ambition.
