Lost voices of the humdrum
In the middle of the humdrum - which here refers to a state of unattentiveness and to something boringly monotonous - one might find comfort while the other feels scared. On the other hand the border between our inner lives and the humdrum of the world is wavering. While to someone a ray of light can bring joy to another it only reminds of a painful memory. Both good and bad can become monotonous and lose their meanings and in this creation we wish to look into those moments where the wishes and actions of oneself get merged and transformed with ones of the surroundings.
Lost voices of the humdrum braves to travel on the edges of dream and reality and wants to ask - In our thoughs, when does one voice turn into many? Or when an abundance of ideas become the truth? When do the wishes of an individual become meaningless or begin to overcome the others?
