"Everybody is crowded in the big stage, everybody guarding it's own place like at an evening at the opera. It's hot, still summer in the unknown city."

"There are lots of buildings all over the place. One by one they start to move, sliding and careening drunkenly in every direction, lunging into one another, accompanied by loud breathing sounds over two loudspeakers. And all around blue lights go on and off..."

These words come to my head all the time while I'm in the city. Making me feel part of it. Melting with the noise. Just another human being taking part in the asphalt jungle. Looking, cutting, playing, crying, loving and yes, also dying everytime a little bit. These are my eyes and my fears, captured with the ghostbuster light machine that let me live in the chaos and the fiction that everybody lives without being aware of it.
