A Pleasure Trip

“A pleasure trip” is a poetic reflection on falling mattresses against a blue sky. Cast from the top floor of a building, they sail towards the ground, at times in seeming defiance of the very rules of gravity. Questions of origin and intent are left unasked and unanswered. The focus instead lies on the spontaneous and arbitrary, on action without further justification. For a single moment, all that matters is the play of aesthetics — yellow and pink against a blue background.
