The Crust

One of my earliest project where I delved deep into the subject of human nature. After reading the history of bestiality trilogy by Jens Bjørneboe I was blown away by this book. It's honest, informative and brutal. It holds a mirror and shows us what we are really capable of in our darkest hours.

Once again I would like to begin with the meaninglessness of outer space, the insane fire under us, and the deathly cold above us. On this green crust of vegetation, excrement, fertilization; life, there are still people who don’t let themselves be crushed by being physically torn to pieces, they are invincible. They sit in prisons all over the world, they’re abused and maimed by the vassals of the heads of state – today we know the details of the concrete methods all too well for me to need to mention them. We’re all a bit nervous here at La Poudrière.
