The task of Barbora and Juraj behind the glass is to make everything pass through them, resonate. If they feel the potential in the resulting resonance, direct it or transform it, they immerse themselves in their imagination, and thus c

    I did not finish this but the years I spent there were extremely valuable and certainly contributed to who I am today.
