EPISODE 2 – POLO SHIRT [DISCIPLINE]

POLO SHIRT [DISCIPLINE]is the name of the second episode of a project called AoTOF_Adumbration of the Oncoming Failure. 
This episode thematizes one of the most extreme modes of transportation used by migrants to cross country borders. The fact that this way of traveling is physically and psychologically extremely difficult goes without saying. The body is not an obstacle. Yet another highly interesting topic could be built on this platform, however – the question of the nature of an object’s transcendence. Everyone knows well that hallucination does not mimic the present, but that the present in hallucinatory. The body is not an obstacle. How long can catastrophe exist without new stimuli? What happens if nobody comes up with anything surprising anymore?
