With this piece, I want to convey a certain mood, a feeling of being adrift at sea somewhere between catastrophe and paradise. We live in a complex world today, and depending on the lens you look through, the possible futures shift. The future can look dim and uncertain - because at the present things are not going so well for the people of planet earth.
I was thinking of the thousands of African migrants braving winter storms and twenty foot waves in overcrowded rickety vessels crossing the Mediterranean Sea and hoping to reach Europe, while European governments are deliberately letting them drown or locking them up to deter others from coming. It’s absolutely depressing and shameful what's going on.
