STUFF submerges in a present where the superabundance of garbage, war, consumerism and substance abuse has been naturalized.

SPOT

Why do we fill the empty space with stuff?
Why do we keep on hunting all those beings around us?
Why do we insist on doing what we know is not right?
It makes me feel so sad
Angry and sad
Why did we watch and follow models on TV?
Replicating those marketing claims designed to make us buy more things
They sell you freedom but you won´t be free!
We work to satisfy material wishes photoshoped on screens

Cosmetic, trendy, in, musts, chic, cool, cold and sweet
Shiny and clean, chemical and SICKly kly kly kly
We are healing viruses produced by anti-these.
We are silencing symptoms with medicines that mask a worse disease
addiction to the habit of solving problems with pills…
Drugs, alcohol and things…
Why are we doing this?
Running away from here?
Why so much fear?
Cant´sleep? Go to the doctor and they will prescribe sleeping pills…
And with them, the side effects of their use, which may include
Amnesia
Daytime grogginess
Severe respiratory depression
Sleep-driving
And other dangerous sleep-related activities
More common side effects of these pills use include
Dizziness
Dry mouth
Unpleasant taste
Difficulty with coordination
Daytime drowsiness
Memory loss
Behavioral changes (including depression and anxiety)
Itching and swelling
Trouble breathing
Shall I continue?
Many people who have developed an addiction to sleeping pills reported
Increasing their dose after the effects weren’t as strong
Over time, they developed a tolerance to sleeping pills that turned into an addiction

In order to overcome this and other powerful addictions
You must first recognize that there’s a problem
We must first recognize that there’s a problem
Hurry here!
Hurry there!
Hurry up!
Hurry up!
Never calm down…
Buy this
Pay that
Buy all you can find
Show all you can buy
Then sit down and drink
Then relax, if u can
Pay
And hurry up!
Withdrawal becomes difficult
As the brain has already become dependent on the drug to induce sleep
Reported sleeping pill withdrawal symptoms are
Agitation, irritability
Behavioral changes, including aggression or depression
Rebound insomnia
Vomiting
Hallucinations or disturbing dreams
Abdominal cramps
Seizures
Anxiety or panic attacks

Today´s the perfect day to realize:
What´s poisoning you?
There are toxics on you!

Today´s the perfect day to stop OBEYING publicity
And watch inside you.
Then look around you:
You feel alone?
You are not alone…
Today´s the perfect day to start making one step at the time
To get the sharpest knives and cut the veils that keep us packed
We must first recognize that there’s a problem

Stuff’s video is “LQ, DIY & Upcycled”. I´ve used footage from different sources / sizes / resolutions and high-speed overlapping images. Editing was a big challenge and it took loads of time to finish it! I promised myself I wouldn’t put myself in such a process again, but it happened again with the video for STRESS :@
