Catedrales by Los Carpinteros

"Distraction and immersion constitute opposites (...) The person who stands in contemplation before a work of art immerses himself in it (...) The distracted mass, on the other hand, absorbs the work of art into itself." Walter Benjamin, The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936)
