How come none of the human obsessions ever includes a possession of freedom? Arenophiles will tell you that they collect sand samples from around the world. Phillumenists, like to possess matchboxes.  Meanwhile, tyrosemiophiles are obsessed with collecting cheese labels. Not enough? Kings and Emperors are in that game too. They playfully engage in the daily business of possessing cities, islands, and even continents, but the game is never about possessing freedom. Ladies know what we’re talking about too. Freedom is not on their shopping list either. All things are just the tokens of freedom. Don’t you think so?!

We better stop judging humans for the sake of feeling better about ourselves and start working the way out.

Humans. None are perfect and never will  be. Maybe if it wasn’t that difficult to obtain the essence of their desires they wouldn’t need to possess anything at all? Or perhaps that’s just the way humans are and will ever be?... Let’s see.

STATUS N/A. Public collection, Sydney.
