Jenya Kulek - 

From the dark Prussian woods to the fiords of Walhalla
Here He comes only once in a live time, newer twice.
Yellow flower of the dried bread crumbs on the table.
Once he was lift up and never come down.
Do you like him, or not? never mind.
But never look him in the eye, or you will melt.
Like a frozen river under spring sun.

Thanks giving song.

-To flood the hell and burn the paradise, he replayed"
A loop film showing the Angst of redundancy of the everyday.

Angst 3
Pillar of The Church.
A piece of wood that once was a pillar of an old church. There should be a new purpose for this artifact, but cannot it be found. As it says in the scripture, "And no one pours new wine into old wineskins".
