Silence Floors

Flowers - live or plastic, but invariably doomed to silence and darkness incomprehensible alarm entrances - can often be seen on the high-rise stairwells old Soviet times. Like flowers in the cemetery, flowerpots in the stairwell are not intended to decorate the spaces between floors. They are a symbol of unexpressed fear of the suspense; the way in advance to give respectful tribute to what is beyond the lifeline. Old houses, like people, are cleared in time, ingrown in the ground, remember the emptiness of loss. Dead people's faces dissolve in people's minds, in their round portraits are now visible only barely discernible features. Each of us is an element of irreversible course of time, where only dusty flowers in the entrance - the  only thing that remains the silent witness of despair.
