Berlin, February 2018

The city is like something living, the city continues to propagate in the daylight. This is perhaps on the surface proof of the wholesome activity that continues and the health of the city in which we reside.

But, within the crevices of this kind of city, there are hole-like openings here and there. These are like openings into the reverse lining of the city. Stopping on the landing of a somewhat dark “negative” stairs, the wind begins to blow. If you descend from here, where exactly would you end up? The terror of being ensnared in a trap and the anticipation of an anti-world; perhaps it is the “healthy city” that surrounds us that is a mere momentary hallucination.
