NARRATOR 1:

Ferréol Babin

Contemporary Volume

 

NARRATOR 2:

Do you know what beauty is?

Did you find it between a colour and a surface?

Can you think of a shape that doesn’t represent any message?

Can you think of something seamless, uninterrupted, monochromatic?

Something so matt, it absorbs all the light?

It’s not a product of a memory nor experience.

The code of decoration is gone.

 

NARRATOR 1:

…But the laws of math are on.

 

NARRATOR 3:

SEE HOW MUCH EFFORT IT TAKES TO SCRAP OFF THE SURFACE.

IT WAS NOT SUPERTHIN AT ALL.

NOW THAT I SEE THE SHAPES NAKED, I THINK OF THEM AS THE SHADOWS.

 

Choir (in harmony):

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN WRONG CLAIMING SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL?
