Finish with the mud

Exit. The search for new surroundings. Entry. The search for oneself in those surroundings. An attempt to locate individual values in a systemized world. What is it like? What are we looking for and how do we find it in today’s reality?There are places we could escape to all around us but civilization imposes certain rules on us. The shell does not break, despite the desperate desire for liberation. It’s not only our environment that restricts us, we are also constrained by ourselves. Is it possible that man is free? In relation to the environment, there is always a measure of alienation – whether in nature or in the city. So we are culturally programmed. Paradoxically, this brings us closer to instinctual behaviour. I’m looking for places where this manifests.
