“Man is only an experiment, opposed by time, inevitability, fate and a stupid, constantly growing stronger prerogative of numbers. Humanity will kill man.” (Marguerite Yourcenar)
Explosion is a
labyrinth of stories of common, small, average people who live in their own
tiny worlds in loneliness and feel destroyed, impoverished and lost under the
pressures of the external, drastically artificial world, blown out of
proportion by media idiotisms, political intrigue and deception. They yield to
the weight of mindless repressed passions, they are victims of slander, shame,
fear, jealousy, boredom.
We offer a few critical insights into our little world’s functioning in order to show our own dispositions and what awaits and stalks us.
