The origin of the triple conception of the body is the Greek philosopher Posidonius. Since then, the body has been described as soma, sarx and pexis. Posidonius sees the body as threefold: the tangible, graspable, and disassemblable body, or ‘sarx’; the body which gives the external appearance of man, his appearance and performance or, one could say his outwardly radiating character – ‘soma’.

Silent witnesses. In some places we have pushed them away completely. At the same time, during leisure time or fatigue, we take shelter in their shadow. Distinctive above the ground, strong below it. Source of life-giving power and oxygen. We have done them wrong many times, but they remain. They take care of their friends and relationships. Trees.

Rope jumping as a children’s game, but also as ambition and self-improvement. Are you jumping to get ahead, jumping past your old boundaries, or are you just jumping in a circle from which there is no escape? How long will the game stay just a game and how long will it take before the game slips into madness?
