Mindfulness exercise at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich.
From outside it looks like an easy exercise, but I made do it in an extremly concentration.
I was protecting this glass with water- so deep intensive- if a waterdrop falls down then a human would die."
For me it was like..." life and death" are in my hands. This sounds extremly, but so you can feel truly intense. Also is the glass overfull with water and when the wind is blowing you must react about this outside powers. It has to stay in one level all the time and every step of every muscle and breathing needs to be mastered. I forgot everything around me. Then I thought about this exercise...I was protecting this water in the mind- never to loos...no one drop. But our body is made around 70% water...so I was thinking, do we take care enough about us self and others...This was just a drop of water...but we are all humans.
