"Thrown for a Loop" (循环地抛出)
"Thrown for a Loop" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
When you are in a constant state of amazement, every day is day one. To be born is unusual, and you never cease to exist. Your cells are renewed every five minutes. Memories are never lost, but become unimportant under the countless piles of redundant words. Experience is non-existent, because repetition has carved out a road where time seems constant. You are the oracle, and really, you might as well be in your own Delphi. The perfect cycle of reoccurring butterflies can symbolize an endless state of happiness you wish to reach, but can only find it in the passing moment. You don’t seem to accept. The idea is obvious: capture the moment. That is the fountain of youth. But no riddle can help when you realize that trying to live just once again isn’t too far from being stuck in the pause menu.
