"What if we place our ears on the earth? Maybe we could listen to a forest growing green from its charred remains. In times of commotion a book from the future answered me: each end is a new beginning. The silence of a forest entered through the window and the wood of a shruti resonated."
Ángeles Rojas, Berlin, november 2020
