1+1=1 is a mathematical mistake but not necessarily an error of logic: if you add a drop of water to another drop of water, how many drops will you have? In a world where mathematics and economics are now more revered than logic and reasoning, this work tries to be a collection of silent poems on the everyday of anyone anywhere. Poetry as a means of survival, when all one hears is screams, noises and music you have not chosen. Silence is a blessing and if you add a photograph to another photograph and maybe yet another, how many photographs are you then looking at?
After the highly successful This Business of Living, Blaufuks' 1+1=1 continues his exploration on the experience of time and memory.
