‘Strains’ deals with the connection between sky – light and earth – darkness. They work as connection between both and adjust the incoming light as parameter for life. Amidst the floating night, these strains work as the protector of your solitude. For Lukas light is a metaphor for the social behavior and social life. These strains keep the light away. Concealing the mysteriousness. Not to reveal everything. Some parts just have to be kept in the dark. Like a curtain, you have to open it, to see through it. You walk through the strains and there is so much more to see with every step. Light is good, but without darkness, life would be a lot more unappealing.
