How can you be surprised by life

7 February - 3 March 2012

“An investigation of the past informs us that life is random and uninterested in human needs and desires.

So why do we humans fabricate life to give an appearance of order and certainty?

Can people embrace the sheer chance of entering and living life?

Could that in turn create an easier acceptance of our own death, the only real certainty of the living?

How Can You Be Surprised By Life is the documentation of a medical procedure carried out on myself to ameliorate a potential life threatening occasion.”

-Paul Ferman, 2012
