APOKATASMA //  2015 // Bachelorarbeit Modedesign

Nature is vile and base. I see fornication and asphyxiation and choking and fighting for survival and growing and just rotting away. The trees are in misery, and the birds are in misery. I don‘t think they sing, they just screech in pain. It‘s a land that God – if he exists – has created in anger. Taking a close look at what‘s around us, there is some sort of a harmony. It is the harmony of overwhelming and collective murder. We have to become humble in front of this overwhelming misery and overwhelming fornication, overwhelming growth and overwhelming lack of order. Even the stars up here in the sky, they look like a mess. There is no harmony in the universe. But when I say all this, I say it full of admiration. It‘s not that I hate it, I love it! I love it very much… But I love it against my better judgement.
