Virtual Tour: Mementos From The Waste Land
by Salvador Joel Alonday and Christina Quisumbing Ramilo

Our neuroses have caused us to fabricate a world that we believe we can control, and in a reductive, materialistic way by which we contend with the difficulty of human existence- we lose touch with our souls. We recount our triumphs against the depths of our despair at times oblivious of what is right and wrong or whom we may be accountable to; it can be confusing, yes. It is in our nature to somehow feel broken –  we have all fallen, no one is unscathed, and we all share the guilt of treading on the ashes of those who have come before us- that existentialist guilt that we were all dealt with, replete with privileges along with its curses.

“We have learned to cope with forced isolation, with anxiety and depression – constantly aware of the invisible threat just outside our sanitized shelters. Our daily routines have transformed us and we began to appreciate life in the mundane.”
