  1. This piece hit me immediately. To me the mechanism and balls represent the daily struggle of assimilating our experience and the relentless way life has of repeating experiences that we are not able or refuse to digest.

    Certainly connects with my life !

  2. The drawing for me represents the always thinking and analyzing process we do everyday. We take the many pieces of information we collect in our mind and analyze and transform those many inputs into something new. Sometimes we have to reflect multiple times on an input before we are able to transform that into something new.

Mesmo em repouso ou aparente indiferença, ‘maquinamos’ sobre a vida, o que vemos, vivemos e sentimos. E assim vamos seguindo, aprendendo a cada dia sobre nós mesmos. Faz-me lembrar, inclusive, de algo que escrevi tempos atrás, em um pequeno caderno de folhas amareladas no qual rabisco algumas linhas: ‘Meu silêncio é ensurdecedor, tão alto são meus pensamentos’.
