Past

Brick Paper Scissors

Nora Baraka

This is a game that relies on absolute luck, so you are not happy if you win or sad if you lose. If you were a brick, the paper covered you. If you were paper, the scissors would cut you, and if you were scissors, you broke the brick. The mood of this game was the general situation for all of humanity after 2020. A person thinks that he is strong and is covered with paper, and an expression is imprinted on his face… Or he thinks that it is sharp like a scissor and breaks the bricks and leaves another expression… Or it is light like paper, then scissors cut it, leaving a third and fourth expression… Thousands of expressions.

Astonished, Upset, Withdrawn, and Waiting…

And when I look at those faces, I look at myself in the mirror, because I am with them in the game and I do not know if I am a brick, paper, or scissors.
