This stone is a part of an art project by Kristina Estell, and I guess every studio in Haus II has one. Many times I read a letter from the artist where she describes her concept and asks a person who lives in the studio to send her the documentation how this stone was used. It was a pity for me because I really like this idea, but I looked at my stone on an upper bookcase and knew that I never use it. When I leave the studio, the stone will be on that place and state as at the beginning.

But it happened. Naturally, I didn’t expect and may be this magic Kristina meant.

I put a stone on a white paper

something that yet exists, real and in this case physical

in a flash it becomes just a document

invisible emotion and dust of memory

that everyone can feel but never knows

what it was in the reality
