ALCHEMY MIDSUMMER 2017

Iron odor walk through air. You step into a room and you get mesmerized by the enchanting environment. Hardly translucent test tubes lined up on the wooden shelves, rust crackles under your feet. Something's bubbling in an alu pot, you step closer, but you need to wipe your dingy glasses, it's been covered by steam. You open your eyes, sit your glasses back on your nose. What happened? How did I end up here? You rub your eyes once more, and got enchanted by the warm desert sand surrounding you. There's no past, no future, only moments suspended in time. A jiff ago, everything was different. Would that be possible? Did I just travelled time? Wait, what is time? What is reality? - you start musing around this topic. Moments pass, and you slowly get used to the new situation. Even the past moments start to feel so remote.. A mirage emerges. Desert dwellers step around you, everyone is dressed in translucent rags. They offer you some drink that you accept, the thirst you feel has never existed before. You examine their clothing, it's new to you. You've never seen such colors. Everything blurs together with your memories of the lab, you start to feel sick. Must have been the drink - you think. Beautiful dancing women around you slowly start to turn into a group of strange people, they are glittering, smiling and inviting you to follow them. Some strange music hits your ears, what is this terrible noise, you ask yourself. This must be the future - you think. Grandiose edifices, quaint sculptures surround you, vehicles dressed in fur. You slowly start to let go your thoughts, habits, you conform the situation. You feel one with the people around you. We must be connected somehow, I know, I feel that - you say to yourself. The other moment iron smell hits your nose, it slips up to your brain, what you feel is a terrible tensive feeling in your chest, so you sit down and close your eyes. The pot is sputtering boiling ferruginous water on your chest. You stand up to get an insight into the pot. The textile you've previously placed to the seam has turned deep purple, rust and olive. These colors seem familiar, they wake up a deja vu within you. As you open the bundles all of your previous dreams seem to come true, you feel a warm waft on your shoulders, you hear the music from far away, you feel one with the whole universe. You feel full, almost exploding of emotions...
