Post-Apocalyptic Art Exhibition
My first impression of this place is hard to describe. It seemed almost surreal. Imagine a Matrix white room loading program or a blank virtual reality environment where someone at least made the effort to add some pure blue for the sky and some grassy texture for the ground. Now put this oversized white shoebox-like structure right in the middle of the scenery and place some random junk around it – and you should be able to visualize what our home for the next 3 days looks like.
Old cars are scattered like post-apocalyptic art sculptures all around the area. I am thinking this could easily be some kind of sophisticated exhibition, where the artist likes to make a strong statement on the decay of modern society. When the night was about to fall I gazed at the sunset, sitting on a red chair in the middle of nowhere with nothing more than blue and green in front of me. This is almost a zen-like reduction to the essence of a landscape.
Philosophically speaking this place is a good mirror of my life situation. The hangar is like a bigger version of the camper, which is my shelter and the epicenter of my life right now. At least both objects are made of the same material and they have other semantic similarities which make this a valid interpretation. The vast endless farmland around me is the undefined quantum space that needs to be filled with creative ideas, plans, and wisdom. And, well, the junk that is lying around could easily mark the unprocessed emotional issues in my subconsciousness. Those things that disturb my inner peace.
That mess needs to be cleaned up, I reckon! I am not quite there yet with my full consciousness – I am aware of that. Still, I am attached to people I love back in Switzerland. That feeling seems to be the biggest drawback for me; it prevents me to fully dive into this new experience. Maybe I should write about this situation at a later point in time. Anyway – the basic epiphany behind this contemplation is that I am still lagging to fulfill the first and most important pre-condition to create a new reality: letting go of my old one.
