THE DAY THE WORLD WENT AWAY

– Pilgrimage : Journey to Black Rock City in the Nevada Desert
Surprising encounter entirely dedicated to the ideas of community, art and self-expression.
I have become fascinated by an alternative way of being in a generation that chooses to live outside the rules of normality without apology. Everything possible is designed to take them back to the much-regretted 70s. It makes me ask these utopic questions: What could happen if we’ll re-start to live ? Could the end offer us a better way ? Without necessary ressources can we find other methods, games, and survival codes ?

university put more than one welter to translate it. The message is incomplete and artificial 
intelligence seems to be inconsistent:
