"I would like to sleep, to surrender myself to the dreamers, as I deliver myself to those who read to me, eyes wide open; to cease from imposing, in this realm, the conscious rhythm of my thoughts."
André Breton, Surrealist Manifesto
To avoid becoming blind to my surroundings, I have to fight habit and find fresh ways to see. I try to explore the world as a small child would, seeing everything as mysterious and potentially thrilling. Children have no set ideas, but are constantly looking for answers. At the same time they accept that the answers are open, unfinished. Right behind rationality and normality there is strangeness, irrationality and madness.
