I just finished watching the first episode of a Netflix documentary called "Abstract: The Art of Design" which profiles the illustrator, Christoph Niemann. The way his mind work is scarily similar to how your or mine might work but the art he produces is spellbinding. So what is the difference between him and us? What [...]

 Shapeless Blur
I try to be a shapeless blur that no one notices Curious about the ways I can hide myself Under the garb of jokes and stretched lips Under the static sound of nothingness that puts me to sleep Behind the curtains of clothes to hide my naked self Behind her strength when she puts her point across [...]

I checked the time elapsed and it was 25 minutes, feeling that the director could have cut the scenes faster or remove certain parts. Boy, I was wrong. What he was doing was giving us viewers a slow poison [...]
