The world is in disorder. People lost confidence in the pandemic, lost manners in the war. Individuals are drowned in reality and virtuality. I have to refocus on life, repair perception and the alienated intelligence. I look through those neglected matters and object with a perceptive gaze – do not exhaust in a divided world without truth.
