An Essay about Nothing

An experimental disorder about the ultimate question of being

«NOTHING» is that important that we should think about it. And Lukas Roth is thinking about this as part of his MA Project at the Accademia Dimitri.

We humans would sometimes be better off doing nothing than what we are currently doing, namely torturing our planet and our environment with the constant urge for more. But what is this NOTHING? 

Between a forward and a backward movement, between inhaling and exhaling, there is this small moment of standstill - is there NOTHING?

Is NOTHING the opposite of EVERYTHING? What happens when NOTHING happens? And what happens when we die? What then ceases to be?

In a series of experiments at these and similar questions, Lukas Roth moves right into free fall. A play into the absurd until there is no sense left. The paradox is obvious, because in the end not nothing will have happened. Maybe nothing will come out of it which would be fundamentally satisfying in this case.
