A PROJECT BY MICHAŁ KOWALSKI
We might call this confused. Hazy state melancholy, or perhaps we should call it by its Turkish name hüzün, which denotes a melancholy that is communal rather than private. Offering no clarity, veiling reality instead, hüzün brings us comfort, softening the view like the condensation on a window when a teakettle has been spouting steam on a winter’s day.
