dust 2 dust


Nicolae Comanescu doesn't dust off. He paints for you with some Bucharest dust a new facade.
The dust settles everywhere - on you, on the furniture, on the window pane, on the plants in your room, the computer and the car hood.
There is no sense in getting rid of it. The more you see work being done in the city the more dust gets produced. They are digging now for more dust.
This dust of Bucharest is the living grit of this city. Fragments from everything around us gather and collapse together. A powder composed out of earth, sand, scruff, dead skin cells, acarian droppings, and a lot of lost particles, blown around. The dust gets everywhere and maybe it is the most basic ingredient of this city. It has a double origin. It is part of the Great Baragan Plain, the proof of desertification and errosion. And it is also rising from the trenches of unfinished construction sites, eating into the guts of the capital. The blocks, the streets, the rooftops are not visible any more trough some fake sepia - the false preciosity of the past. Nicolae Comanescu reports on a city suffering under heat stroke, baking under the Simun, blowing North of Sahara. Bucharest city - the city seen only with dust in your eyes on top of your block of flats. Gone are the big city traps, sprung in this Las Vegas of the South, shining under cazino lights. Left behind is a metropolis griding your teeth to dust.

Buna ziua,

Ma iertati ca va deranjez .Vin cu rugamintea la d-voastra sa scrieti un articol pe blogul d-voastra si sa distribuiti mai departe pe facebook despre mama mea, Gabriela Tudorache care este foarte bolnava . Este diagnosticata cu meningiom , o tumoare cerebrala care i-a afectat vederea si trebuie sa se opereze cat mai repede la o clinica din Germania unde ni se cere 35 000 EUR plus cheltuieli de cazare si transport .

Viata si vederea ei depind de aceasta operatie , iar mie si fratelui meu ne este foarte greu sa o vedem cum indura zilnic cumplitele dureri de cap si ametelile .Timpul nu ne permite sa asteptam si va rugam sa scrieti un articol despre cazul ei . Mai multe detali le gasiti pe http://gabrielatudorache.blogspot.com/. Sau ne puteti contacta la nr de tel. 0724342082. Va rugam , daca sunteti de acord sa ne lasati si un raspuns .
Va multumesc din inima pentru sprijinul acordat.
