100 Embraces

"We believe that the wings of happiness DSC5579

ascend to heights,

But still feel dismayed and stumble if happiness

fails and falls."

/R.M.Rilke - 1oth Elegy/

A century ago in China the punishment of the most severe crime was death by „100 cuts”.

The muscles of a human were cut off the body with 100 cuts while the person was kept alive and awake.

The 100 embraces is the opposite: the insatiable, yearning desire for an embrace, the desire

for happiness, dematerialization and - even if just for a moment - placing our axis outside

ourselves.

Surreal vision of happiness and illusion; and the gigantic battle of a butterfly with a light bulb.
