METRO ENTRANCE

IMG_0751.JPG

A concrete plane tilts up from the horizon

symbol of welcoming

Human figures with all kinds of silhouette

following the path

slope up from the ground

The plane hover above the ground leads to the end

Its turning point breaks the mirror image of itself

becomes rough and jagged

stretches off the horizon and descends underground

Figures flood into a dark hole

Except for those with wheels and burdens

both physical and mental ones

in situ

confusing and fatigue

trapped in between the entrance and the exit

TACTILE PAVING

The texture of the road changed

indifferently

Smooth and hard

Leads to an unknown land without any hints

Tab to the left is the red steps

Tab to the right, a curved path

 

After minutes of waltz

she drowns into another dimension

a stage

the void
