“What comes to your mind when I say a human?”
I asked people around me to respond to the following question:
„Can you write me one association for the word HUMAN?“
In this post, I would like to create a kind of open archive, in which I will gradually enter the answers that will be shared with me. I will ask random people, among the small talks, I will ask strangers and acquaintances, the auditor in the tram or my own father, if I will ever see him again. Of course, the list cannot be complete in principle. The association leaves the answers free, without the right to explain or strive for the moral seriousness of the reaction. Maybe this list inspires you to work. Maybe your answer will change in time.
Invitation: if you also want to share your association, send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note I started playing with it. On the second level, I was observing what my first association was like, to the answers I received. I add them to inner clicks, just for fun, from the infinity of a chain of free associations.
I’ll send it, is it ok on Monday?
Hi Anička, I’ll try to come up with something. But Spata when he asked the question “What is your greatest wish?” he needed a feature-length documentary for that…
I mean, the picture is surrounded by text, I didn’t even know. But just a gentleman in a circle by Leonardo da Vinci.
I’m sorry, I’m mentally worse now, so I’m just managing things to school, I cannot do anything creative.
Hi. thanks for sharing. I’ll make time for it and send it.
Man is blood to me.
It would be more, but at first I remembered the Vitruvian man
Hi, I say: island.
Is it supposed to be just one thing, or can I get on the back of a flying unicorn and start it in a fantasy world?
I’m sick, I’m not thinking now.
Probably sore throat, I lost my voice
Da Vinci’s pentagram!
Listen… tomorrow, thank you!

Hi, for sure!
I AM SICK NOW
I remember the crowded street / square in the city.
we’ve seen ourselves, eating each other right down to the marrow of our bones
There is one poem of Lety Goldberg, also very famous remade into the music. It is from the 1940s. It ends for me with the strongest connection to the Hebrew: Echad headam, One of the people. I once translated the poem and never stopped thinking about it ………
