Delirium — Kyiv, Ukraine 2017
Nowadays any emotional state, which couldn't be explained and isn't predictable by Government institutions, might be considered as a Wrong behaviour pattern and declared a dangerous Disease. Then the few cases out of context, but with somehow similar symptoms, would be shown as the proof that it can destroy you, so the appropriate procedure so-called 'Cure' could be legally applied.
Instead of deep analysis and self-understanding, driven by Fears and Rules, we Trust our Lives to Pharmacy Corporations, blowing up our minds with expensive antidepressants and unknown pills. Brainwashed by the bunch of marketers we desperately chase 'safe and predictable future', falling into Delirium rather than taking control over the own Emotions.
P.S. According to National Institutes of Health: Acute confusional states are usually the result of a physical or mental illness and are typically Temporary and Reversible.
Cranes — Odessa, Ukraine 2017
Work has to Fulfill not to Enslave.
Unfortunately, Fulfilling Jobs do not grow on trees in Real World with the stubbornly high unemployment rate. If we could be more Fluid and balance between our demands and obligations, challenge ourselves instead of sinking into the Boredom, create the circumstances to have a Choice instead of waiting for the Time in blurred future, when we'll finally get out of All tasks (and unexpectedly fall asleep tired then). There's no reason we can't (be humans ?^_✿) make this big part of our leisure enjoyable, rather than (being zombies or robots ò_ó ) chasing some imagined destination of success
Worldwide Hallucination — Odessa, Ukraine 2017
Your experience of the World and of yourself within it is just a Hallucination controlled by the Brain, which tries to provide you with the best guess about what is 'Reality'. So, we all are hallucinating all the time in our own 'realities' perceiving the World differently, yet all being a part of the same Nature.
Consequently, prejudging the One's Hallucination sounds very Offensive, doesn't it?
Do not pull people into the Bad trips! Help them to overcome unbalanced moments instead. Share some helpful information and let them realize by themselves where is their Truth
Superficial Steps Up — Kyiv, Ukraine 2017
More and more people show fake appreciation, cause they just do not want to embarrass Themselves by hurting their friends' feelings and the One goes away with the real cheap success and never rises any higher than that fake, controversial achievement level
Consume Less Produce More — Lviv, Ukraine 2017
Why were we born? To fuck and enjoy Life? To suffer and sacrifice? Or just maybe there was no condom nearby?) 0_o
Whatever was the reason, the question is: Why do we live? To aggregate the material wealth and worry that it would be useless after death if we won't produce some more kids until then? To screen everything around on smartphone, missing the presence, instead to enjoy seeing it posted online more than the event itself?
Stop consuming eagerly. Just be! Imagine, express yourself, create something genuine. Even if everyone would say, ''It's bullshit'', keep going! The proper words will come to you someday and thoughts would be distilled to Poetry
Leave your Mind Alone — Lviv, Ukraine 2017
People are not comfortable to be in Solitude. They assume, they expect, they worry... Then they worry about the thing that they're worried. When people are left alone they feel extremely uncomfortable about it. They call, they text to somebody... Why we want to escape from ourselves? Is it because of lack of distractions or maybe because of the fear to be genuine and honest to ourselves or we are just addicted - desperately addicted to our thoughts
Gedogen — Amsterdam, Netherlands 2015
Hiding negative social phenomenon does not make it disappear.
Consideration of others' interest instead of punishment and prosecution often leads to win-win situation. That's what happened to Calvinists long time ago. The same approach was applied to prostitution, weed, mushrooms, euthanasia, etc. Tolerate it, rather than prohibit it and subsequently lose control.
Allow people what they're pushing for. Let them do it in certain places to not destruct the others, and they will stop hiding underground. The fewer rules exist, the easier to not break those ones
Genuine Viewer — Amsterdam, Netherlands 2015
We should not put likes trying to be polite, but only if we really Like things. It gives people the right sign in which direction to move.
Luckily there is no 'like' button in museums and you have full freedom to observe and to interpret an Art anyway you want without being driven by masses opinion. It forces you to think about the Meaning instead of the decision whether you like it or not. The piece of Art just exists as you do and doesn't require to form any superficial behaviour around it, the Society itself does
The Piggish Algorithm — Bremen, Germany 2016
Likes based algorithm of social media could play a dirty trick on our society.
The more we like something the more it feeds us with a similar content, eliminating the other points of view. It gratifies the one's narcissistic needs, engages in self-promoting and superficial behavior. Despite this fact, online community can't blame Facebook for personality disorders or fake illusions. Instead, Humanity needs to become skeptical, learn how to develop an empathy and appeal for as genuine relationships online as in real life
Station Espanya (destination Digital Distraction) — Barcelona, Spain 2014
Oops, another train has passed... Do we feel good, when we've skipped few trains, or when we've missed the bus stop, because of staring at the phone? The one might hate himself, the other just starts laughing to comfort himself after the dumb behavior. Let's just Cheer Up in such moments for the opportunity to realize that we're too obsessed with the virtual world, but it's time to enjoy reality Now
The Balcony of Open Mind — Barcelona, Spain 2014
Nowadays, where individuals are measured by personal achievements & wealth, many people lose their familiar connections or swap face to face conversations with the social network activities. Therefore, more & more people feel lonely, despite they are surrounded by hundreds of humans on daily bases. Let's start building true Friendships instead of being addicted to endless self-promotion, otherwise we're going to claim to have few thousand friends, but being lonely. Exchanging quality for quantity in favor of obsession to build a public profile feeds an illusion, that we should never be alone. But, if we never could be alone, the only thing that we're going to know is Loneliness
Artificial Intelligence — Barcelona, Spain 2014
Artificial Intelligence as an information technology is going to expand exponentially. In my humble opinion, AI would claim to be conscious in the nearest 20 years. Therefore, we could either to believe that technology will augment us or to worry about the prospect of being enslaved by a master race of the newly liberated Androids & iPhones (or Nokias? 0_o)
