One apartment, one 21-year-old person. There are various ways of dealing with reality. One of them can be inaction, being an action itself. A form of escapist escape from actuality, responsibility and difficulties. Hiding in one place, surrounded by everyday possessions, walls, ceilings and floors. Avoiding the reality by airy, carefree, enjoyable yet temporary inaction. A momentary rebellion against the order of life being a ruthless mechanism. When you don’t do anything of great importance, meaningful or relevant. But is it that way meaningless? Should it be called meaningless when it’s not meaningful? Or is the inaction of value?
