Beyond the image of mother nature, as a place that it’s purity needs to be conserved, like replacing the current monotheism with another and build on the commodification of the new, life has cracks, contamination, depression, weirdness. It’s all the flowing states beyond rights and wrongs, good and bad, old and new, objects and subjects, where creatures dancing on the mesh that we are connected through, our ecology. Life indefinitely open, constantly changing and ambiguous might have mixed form weird species, purple skies, blue sands, creatures with the ability to breath on CO2, if this is part of natural drift and evolution. To be in the flow of life, is a creative process which requires to challenge my fixated mind and perception. A decisive choice of how to be and what attitude to carry in this world.
