Sentimental Machines: The Dreamed Dream by Mirco Salvadori*

Be aware that by absurdity reality is life breathed during moments of unconscious distance from what is real, instants or, perhaps, long sequences of events diluted in the muffled world of the indefinite, temporary suspensions when eyes close to better scan the silent throb of sentiment.
This means losing oneself like letting one's hand go with violent Sonic Ecstasy after grasping it romantically and plunge into a sensuous and shattering dronic delirium; like a dream in which the ruthless and cruel demons of the End coexist, chased by harmonic visions wrapping together even the most obscure temptations of the mind in a deafening magnificence.
Human work, it is, assembled step by step, directly within the core of a heart that lives and pulses inside a machine, supplied with the blood, the tears and the love that only Man can generate and offer.

The machines that move the Sentiments have started running, let them work, let your dreamed dreams nourish their slow quivering.

*Art director, poet/writer
