The artist writes:

During that period, I was obsessed with “blurp” – a term I coined to refer to evil energy, a kind of acid that flows through human veins. This dark force may manifest itself on its own or following an intake of psychoactive substances. A typical example of a “blurp-infected” figure is Smeagol from J.R.R Tolkien’s novel, as well as the majority of politicians and representatives of the Catholic Church.

“Blurp” is finally released through the protagonist’s forehead and speaks to us: “they’re calling us.” A major component of the work is the soundtrack – an absurd poem that the protagonist utters. The lyrics are based on various statements heard on TV.
