On several occasions we’ve been exploring empty spaces here at Sploosh. We are extremely inspired and fascinated by the language of silence, of how much can be said without saying anything at all. This is our first longer term project of observing life in an abandoned place, not normally associated with anything living, and what better place to start than an outdoor amusement park, closed down for the winter.
For hours we would walk in this empty parallel world, packed away and forgotten for a while. The season has ended. Winter is coming. Everything and everyone is embracing themselves for the impact. In a race to find shelter everything is set into one final motion. And then it’s quiet. No movements, no people, no life.
I was full. I was content. I was overjoyed with your smiles.
The sun was high and the days long.
Now the sun has gone, I am alone and you have vanished.
I am empty – hollow as a drum. I echo noises of silence.
I go to sleep. I wait.
One day I will see you again.
Soon, I think.
