About

[...In some places it is an offense to tip or bargain but when you enter a temple you leave behind all the coins you have in your pockets. If you had to tip or bargain perhaps you wouldn’t have coins in your pockets so you weren’t able to leave them in the temple. Is the one action connected to the other? Is this creating another idea about economy? Sometimes people if they don’t have coins they leave behind whatever they have in their hands; half eaten sandwiches, semi consumed beverages, paper foils and they light incense to give food to the winds. What kind of sentiment makes someone to even want to feed the winds? Is it a sentiment of acceptance for all those unknown elements, messages, particles, cells and dusts, that cannot be seen or prove their existence by been seen? Is the lighting of a candle the determination of something told? Is the light of a candle the visual proof of a message being heard? What are the similarities between the offer and the waste? What do we offer and what do we waste? Is the repression of temporalities that make visible an unknown that cannot been seen and cannot been named the state of a society that understands life only as constant naming, frame, control, knowing and beginning? How do we understand death? Do we struggle for representation or existence? How can we live without wanting to exist? How can we live without the feeling of being able to live? In some places it is more important to dress your dead relatives than those who are alive...]
