Jon-Jae-Ui Jib

House of Existence
There it stands, the house, drawn in pencil. It begins to fall apart. Bricks come loose from the wall, the front door falls off its hinges and walls break away. Everything sinks into endless nothingness. A view of the rooms is exposed. Furniture shatters, objects fall to the floor and the roof slides off. Melancholia and the possibility of leaving is all that remains.
