VOS #3 – What Doesn’t Let Us Rest
An online Exhibition
Time is becomming the most important property. Life is getting quicker and there is a need of new strategies to manage these challanges. We are running, searching and working for a better life, a greater future, more personal effects, self-confidence and/or recognition.
But there is also hidden side of this behaviour: sickness, failure, loneliness, fear,…
How can these aspects be handled? Or shouldn’t they be handled?
And: What doesn’t let us rest?
