'There is a hole/whole to every puppet story.'
A folk-tale about puppet and man:
'Once there was a puppet maker who wanted his son, Aung, to generate his puppet-making art.Aung wanted to see the world and adventure in the world.Before he left home, the puppet maker gave him four puppets: the first, the king of all gods(the wisdom) : the second, the green-face orge(the strength) : the third, the mystic sorcerer-Zaw Gyi in Myanmar(the knowledge) & the fourth, the holy hermit(the goodness) .With them, you can rule the world! (the poet says.) Aung met a rich merchant's daughter anmed Marla and fell in love with her.Whenever he faced with problems, one of the four puppets became alive and he consulted with them, overcoming difficulties in life.In the end he became somebody in the palace and lived happily in life with Marla.'
What about the life of the four puppets? Are they catalysts in the complex contemporary wold?
'There is a hole/whole to every folk-tale of puppet city.'
A reality show/a reality icon to a solution to life-long life projet?
Questions are not puppets but human world.What is a question? , Gertrudestein askes a question long time ago.Puppets are answering Gertrudestein's substantial question.
Puppets are now real human beings.
Are you a puppet or a man? Puppets are wise and energetic.
Next window.Open it right now.Next window to puppet city.I have an answerI have an answer.Puppets are now real human beings.I have an answer.Puppets are now real human beings.I have an answer.Puppets are now real human beings.Questions are not puppets but human world.
A tension is not between puppet and humans but between complexities of contemporary world and secret of nature.
Questions are not puppets but human world.
