Tramps who sleep in public space on the ground, in places not intended for this kind of action yet so basic and vital; here a roughly masked tube which twists like a big worm, there a piece of grass cut to reveal a trunk.
These scenes point out everyday and banal aberrations of a city, its faults or missing elements, sorts of tinkering which reveal their absurdity. They can also appear as spontaneous solutions to situations not resolved by the system, an alternative to a rigid framework in which man succeeds to adapt.
An unexpected poetry that plays with the inevitable transformation that the system operates on us.
