"The image of chaos. A silent analysis - coming from a demiurge (that analytical language we invent and force onto order) to understand. This understanding jumps out from the sounds heard, pictures seen and most importantly the rush of emotions that paint the pictures. Why domesticate the wilderness when the wilderness is full of surprises?
It doesn't belong to you - you are an integral part of it, changing its perception with every outburst.
Discover the individual's form and the individual concerned becomes domesticated. The language moves from chaotic to in formation with all around."
