SW\/ON #4 PRESENTED BY

KAUNAS, 2015


II NN TT RR OO DD UU CC TT II OO NN As you probably understood, this 4th issue of SW\/ON zine is about delusions and errors. Although you can find mistakes and delusions in our other publications, this issue is particularly devoted to delusions and errors. The reason for this is that both the human and the machine are characterized as being fallible. It is programmed in our genes gens. And somehow we convey it not only to our children, but also for anyone and anything that is touched by our hands and our minds. Don't get angry for being fallible. It won't help.\r\r But why there are delusions, you may ask. Itā€™s because we believe that the reality without delusion is just an illusion. Everything breaks and erodes, but still we create a brilliant future with synthetic happiness and love. We live in a world where common sense is often perceived as delirium and error of errors. And that's why this edition is specifically dedicated to this phenomenon. YOUR YOUR KG KG TEAM TEAM
