/ Bart Krezolek / Photo story


Implosion is a process in which objects are destroyed by collapsing on themselves. The opposite of explosion, implosion reduces the volume occupied and concentrates matter and energy. The act of implosion does not relieve tension or external pressure. Reality continues to act with the same invisible force and imploding subsequent beings, absorbing and subordinating them. Being under constant emotional, ideological and insecurity pressure one can experience an internal implosion, a sudden collapse resulting in a feeling of disconnection and frustration. COVID pandemic caused this.

I am discovering my own reaction to the feeling that everything is coming to a grinding halt. Crisis of authorities, religion, media, relationships all mixed together fueled with fear of death of loved ones.

No light. No people. No speak. No cars. No food.
