generet

Siamo quei ragazzi che trasmettono le loro emozioni attraverso stati su Whatsapp e Facebook.
Siamo quei ragazzi che nascondono le sigarette.
Siamo quei ragazzi che il sabato sera, quando tornano a casa, cercano di non far capire ai genitori che si sono sballati.
Siamo quei ragazzi che moriamo per un messaggio.
Siamo quei ragazzi ai quali i mi piace fa più effetto degli sguardi intensi.
Siamo i ragazzi di questa generazione.
Siamo i ragazzi che hanno creato questa generazione.
Siamo la generazione.

The Uranus in Aquarius generation ( 1996 - 2003)

I personally can’t wait until this particular generation comes to be the influential force in our society, when they all grow to be proactive adults. This placement is all about deviation and individuality; this may likely be expressed in the society as a whole when differences are embraced and individuality accepted. This generation is also likely to bring about significant change as Aquarius is all about forward thinking and the greater ideas of the future, therefore they are even the more likely to rebel from the previous social standards that fundamentally do not aid the future such out-dated laws and social idealisms. Realistically speaking, this placement is in the birth-charts of the teenagers of today who are more and more evidently supportive of individuality and deviance from outdated social norms; it is only a matter of time until the world’s present and future is in their hands; and I think that is a great thing to look forward to indeed.

Artist’s statement: “In one of the dialects spoken in the east of Poland, which is a mixture of Polish and Belorussian, people strongly attached to the soil they had been cultivating for generetations were called “Karczebs”. With their bare hands Karczebs cleared forests in order to grow crops. The word Karczeb was also used to describe what remains after a tree is cut down - a trunk with roots, which remains stuck in the ground. This also applied to people - it was not easy for the authorities to root them out from their land, even in the Stalinism times. The price they paid for their attachment to their soil was often their freedom or life. After death, hurried nearby their farmland, a Karczeb himself became the soil, later cultivated by his descendants.”
