The humans first built the cities to keep the animals out, and later on other humans, and so on and so forth and so on, now you are condemned to walk these streets. Your whole being is marinating in vanity but no one escapes pathetic, under the veil of self-deception awaits depression, even madness.

The hole in your chest where god used to be is the exact same spot as your utter detachment to nature. Not talking about no hike.
And this recent study that claims an average chimp kills a few other chimps during their lifespan took me completely off guard, always seemed to me they were buddies, really makes you think.
If we all only could work as little as possible with fun but meaningful tasks in the same office for the exact same pay wouldn‘t it be fun, safe, and last forever. If you fuck a lot you will stay in shape and live to be 200.

How about that, 200 years, it’s longer than anyone can even remember.

No one can say that it‘s not ok to leave your island, but you‘ve gone too far, you did everything, anything.

Fun fact:
The artist had actually not even seen any of these works before he arrived here, he bought them online, they where made in Spain somewhere by a fabricator (truly favourable price tag. Let us know if you need anything done and we will hook you up with the best contacts.) I believe it‘s meant as some form of criticism towards consumerism etc. , but don‘t ask me how!

And we had a bunch of rad tech guys helping with install, thanx guys, you are savages!

A free man thinks to himself that one day freedom will come.
A rich man thinks that the working classes are afraid of competition.
A proper man is Mr. boiled cauliflower and apparently doesn‘t know if the police are the Nazis or the very reason he is alive at all, he just wants to stay out of trouble and always thinks about himself and his own immediate needs.
Heads up babes: receiving art grants is the exact same thing as getting „daddy money“, there is no difference at all, just feels better because your think you actually had to compete.

My ancestors are smiling at me imperial, can you say the same?

Repent! /Satan
