Rubble, ashes and broken glass. Destruction is omnipresent. Do we fear it?
The Viewer is looking for the origin of a phenomenon which influences our lives. Accompanied by the questions from a pastor and observations of a physicist, we experience destruction as a necessary step towards the creation of new things. We let ourselves be fascinated by it until we discover destruction doesn't just bear the spark of creation, but is inextricably connected to our will: destruction is a part of us, we are part of it.
