SOUL IN THE CHAOS


The glare is everywhere, and nowhere a shadow. -Maxim Gorky, “Boredom”

SOUL IN THE CHAOS


The glare is everywhere, and nowhere a shadow. -Maxim Gorky, “Boredom”

Future is buzz. There Is a madness around us. Crucial environment with unexpected consequences. The natural skin of the earth is replaced by a hidden mechanical graft. The world serves as a special space for mass actions. The digitalization brought us to the automation in all aspects – coming from the nature to the human senses.
In this chaos, we have a CHOICE! Choice to be alone with ourselves. Now we can relax, seize the moment, enjoy the silence. The formula of innocent pleasures brings as to the spring of our soul, to the mother nature. We need to be more connected with ourselves.
The special elements can be considered as small oases. They define a territory that can be shaped and controlled by a single individual and expend the thematic potential of each module. The typology of this spaces are: smell free space, relaxing touch space, view relaxing space, noiseless space, tasting space. All this types are representation of our 5 senses: SMELL, TASTE, HEARING, SIGHT, TOUCH.
