“You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away”
— Neil Young

Relocating to the city hit me with all kinds of industrialized goods. In this continuous urban noise roaring and wandering everywhere in the daily fast-flowing vision, my time is fractured from the linear time of the external environment, as if left out by the torrent. In a city with a big goal, I became a person who was thrown out without orientation, and I and them (objects) seemed to be blocked from time, creating a kind of flexible conflict. At this point I became aware of myself and tried to sing useless poetry in an overly refined and symbolic everyday life.
