If I do nothing, nothing does

SCAN Project Room | London

If I do nothing, nothing does take its title from the last line of the poem Mexican Loneliness by Jack Kerouac. Kerouac sketches a state of existential emotional conflict of in which doing and not doing blur in an extended moment of anticipation, state of about-to-be. Mexican Loneliness is a part of a larger work, Mexico City Blues, written between 1954 and 1957 and published in 1959.
In art, as in life, not everything unbalanced is unbeautiful.
