Imagine if right now
All the countless advertising hoardings that line the pavements suddenly sprang to life.
That simply by the power of your gaze, you could make them come alive, and moreover the images they showed you weren’t quite perhaps what you were expecting…
Imagine the city becoming a place of pure fiction, just for a moment,
yet long enough to let you rediscover the magic of seeing the world,
and regain that vital element of subjectivity in your eyes.
Imagine in this fictional world that the city has become,
that you come to a bend in the road and find your identity,
there on the street corner, your clear-sightedness,
and just at your feet, on the edge of the pavement,
all your desires piled up in a heap.
And what if this fantasy was none other than your own
reality, the reality that is stolen away from you every day, every bit more?
