is a project about sex. The beauty of. Reality of and truth.
We wish to celebrate something real in this world of 'easily changed into only outer form', in this world of ideas, words and concepts where the real people struggle to find its place in all its glory and imperfectness.
I hope we will keep living and fail, fail, fail - to be human and not some conceptual puppets performing at the strings of what the media and news tries to impose on us.
I hope we will keep searching, experiencing, trying, getting it wrong and try again.
I hope we will.
