The title of the project is a metaphor of the violent way in which people react, both in day to day life, but especially on social media, where they feel powerfull and safe from behind the keyboard. We are all distracted by the dust they throw ...fake news, manipulation and hate. As a result, we feel superior, we begin to insult other people, to react at hate speaches with hate...the mud in our souls and hearts comes to the surface. Even though we feel that what we do is normal and we are always right, in a way, all of us are covered in mud, in a certain degree.

Blinded by dust

It s hard to see the righ thing when your eyes are closed because of all the dust

Faded beauty

No matter how beautiful you think you are the mud and the dust change that

Wide open

You re trying to keep your eyes wide open to see clearly

Half Pure

You are trying to protect at least some part of you

Too much

Try to rubb off the filth but it s too much

This is not me

Try too hide but it s too late

Dirty hands

There is so much mud around me what should I do with it

Guilty look

Don t look at me like that you are not better than me

Eyes wide shut

I just want to close my eyes and make it go away


The only way to keep my sanity is to let it all out and scream
