Everyone has had at least once this strong thirst to scream. I mean these inner screams which can bring a certain level of purification but for many reasons they never become a real, actual scream. It’s like a very big massive explosion which nobody hears. The screaming for me stays as a symbol of the strong will to reach outer spaces in ourselves. However, this idealistic notion is only a utopia as the human mind is not capable of even touching universes, only imagination is. Therefor I feel that we are inescapably trapped in this inter-space continuum where time is only a memory of the real world and our longing to overcome it, no matter how strong and insane it is, is staying endlessly an attempt - an attempt at screaming – feeling – knowing – living –
