‘cleaning as a practice is a first step towards the understanding that our own survival depends on the survival of our planet. we need to re-conceptualise our relationship and maximise our connective participation. through cleaning, we express our respect and appreciation towards ourselves, others and our direct surrounding. we learn to reconnect with our physical environment and internalise it by actively engaging with it. cleaning changes our awareness and perception. it promotes independency, helpfulness and consideration. moreover, we learn to correlate our action with their cause and effect. necessary to maintain a healthy equilibrium, cleaning is part of our life as a recurrent cycle.’studio b severin
