Good Night, Everybuds!

Good Night, Everybuds!

The world lies down snugly in the gently rolling waves of soft music. The cactus sleeps, the snake sleeps, tennis sleeps. The night of lovers begins. Senses knead bodies and roll them out into slinky planes. Desire halfpipes in the skate park of touches, laid out in warm colours in the moonlight by Benedikt Hummel, who allows what’s beautiful to happen with a wink.
