the speed of changes makes the consciousness of presence impossible. a day is a year is a second.
The collission of past and future, visions of a better place, at the same time the past vanishing rapidly - the ruins and the cathedrals of the future stand side by side and mix into each other. Inbetween, there is the promise, advertisements and pictures of a bright future, buildings, constructionsites, modernism as a futuristic paradise. These illusions are the missing link in a journey with an unknown end to all of us.
