“All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

― Blaise Pascal

 

This installation consists of 9 GIFs —— each is presented on a smartphone and placed correspondingly to the object in the image. The GIFs are segments of visual poetry in which words and trivial motions from daily life give forms to each other.​
