CONSTANT NEED

CONSTANT NEED talks about the outburst from familiar structures and the space for the very special moments in life: when we forget about time, have no limits and allow us to be free.

 

 Voiceover in the video:

There‘s this constant need to finish something every day.

You control time, run from A to B.

You connect with people.

You owe your own time.

You are strong, restless, present.

You speak up for yourself.

You help strangers.

You don’t want to commit ‘cause you get easily bored.

You don‘t want to be weak in front of others.

And then there is this state – it’s physical.

A need connected to a specific space.

You lose yourself for days and hours, you allow yourself to lose control.

It’s about you.

No one else. 

And you stop thinking for a little while.
