from the project born in 2019: Trauma 1920

/tràu·ma/

A Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness,
diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences.  It does not discriminate and it is pervasive throughout the world.

Looking at things from a different perspective, we observe scenarios where space, nature and priorities
seem to come together in our maps like a huge puzzle, perhaps in the most authentic of forms. 

BREATH, IF YOU CAN

Breath, if you can 20|21

The constriction in a muffled world that makes us “captives”, leaving us dumbfounded,

angry or otherwise perplexed.
Locked-out? or locked-in?
(But there is much more than this)

Alone. Or in small group. But still, isolated in a globalized world!
With the rest of the Planet that still goes on,
one way or another.

We are only human. No matter if from the 13th or the 18th century.
Same humans.
We are aware.
We are all dealing with it,
one way or another.
Black dressed, on oily canvases and black backgrounds  – semi paralized in deep water.
Incapable of reactions.
Faces with mouths all wide closed. Breathless. Numbed. Rigoruous in our Elizabethan collars.
Blacked and prisoners.
It’s us looking inside (where are we?),
or it's us looking outside (where are we going?)
