Shobhana Kumar - India


Broken Record


Drum up something radical. Irreverent. Even polemic. Don’t get stuck in the clichés, although they can trail you like a faithful shadow. Come now, try to break out of the rut and think out of the box. Remember it’s all about perspective, about how you can make a noun majestic without the adjective. Or a verb scream without traditional paraphernalia.

And don’t forget the silences. They are the most important. Show. Show. For god’s sake, don’t tell.

failed monsoon
even the trees
bereft of words
