Slip(s) of the Tongue

2016 – Performance, Poetry & Text

    GOOD LUCK!
It won’t help me…
I am talking out loud to myself.
    EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE.
    EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE!
Everything will not be fine,
I know that. But I do not say that.
I am talking out loud to myself.
I am thinking in silence in myself.
    I AM SURE I’M NOT

    THE ONLY ONE. (I say.)

    I AM SURE I’M NOT

    THE ONLY ONE. (I think.)
Are there any more only ones present here?

2016 – Poetry & Text, Printed Matter

A column about boredom, written for Issue° 1, Speculating Systems’, Sandberg Design Department.

 

Boredom is a phenomenon that is constantly present in our society, but often remains concealed.

    Everyone deals with it, but at the same time it seems impossible to exist within our system- and work based society. How do we feel when we are bored? What kind of actions do we consider while being bored?
Can we look at boredom as a taboo of the 21th century?

 

Speculating Systems is designed by Daniel Seemayer and Andrea Karch.
