Crowds

A mass of people is on the move. Individuals connected by equal ideals or common motives. The group manifests itself as a whole, the individual disappears. Within the continuous human crowd patterns emerge. These repetitive structures bring about an association with wallpaper. The comparison is not only formal but also substantive. As with wallpaper, the repetitive, the unchangeable and the endlessness of the continuous stream weakens the attention. You get used to it, it becomes ordinary. To what extent does it still affect you?
