After an unexpected and unplanned period of time spent in what seems to be the near future, I have difficulties adapting to the almost forgotten present that surrounds me.

water in abundance
flushing pipes
washing cars
dispersing protesters
keeping refugees away

to warm myself
I turn the heating up to three

to brighten up the night
my LEDs are dimmable
highest energy
efficiency class

Air on my skin
cold in summer
warm in winter
air conditioning

the ground
that I stand upon

better known
as the dirt
under my feet
unlikely to find its way
into my apartment

Clearance has been shown at the TIFF festival in Wroclaw, Poland in 2019. Thank you, Franek!

My surroundings continue to astonish me, so I will most likely change the video a bit, adding photographs and thoughts.
