I MAY HAVE PUT AN ARTWORK ON THE BACK OF THIS TREE-TRUNK

Could we do without having every curiosity satiated by a caressing movement of the index finger over the Oracle’s white mouse? Would we be lost in the world without our mind being power-steered by twitchy electronic devices? In the wave of the blue screen our artistic mind struggles to overcome the surplus of “beauty”. There was a time when people went to art museums like starved wolves. The hunger of not-knowing was very important for a more complete picture of the unique object. This principle hasn’t changed. We need to keep reviving Existence’s suddenly deceased sister — Non-Existence.
