Sound of Silence


Du stehst wieder ganz am Anfang, weißt nicht weiter und die Stille lädt dich in ihr Zelt. Du hast trockenes Brot und die Stille streicht dir Honig drauf. Wenn dein Gesicht hart ist, löst dir Stille deine Züge. Sind deine Augen müde, ist Stille ihr Balsam …

Du durchwanderst eine ausgedorrte Landschaft, während erste Tropfen aus der Stille fallen. Schenkst du dich der Stille ganz, schenkt sie sich dir …

Stille ist intelligent, ist Schoss von Wundern. Stille ist das Wertvollste und doch kann sie nicht verkauft werden – nicht mal Nestle schafft das – denn es gibt sie gratis zuhauf, überall! Aller Raum ist Stille, auch wenn er von Klängen erfüllt ist …

Du gehst die ersten Schritte an der Hand der Stille, sie hält den Tanz deiner Zellen und empfängt deinen letzten Hauch …


You are back at the beginning, not knowing what to do and silence invites you into her tent.
You have only dry bread and silence sweeps honey on it.
When your face is hard, silence loosens your facial features.
When your eyes are tired, silence is their balm.

You wander through a parched landscape as first drops fall from silence.
When you give yourself to silence completely, she gives herself to you …

Silence is intelligent, is the womb of wonders. Silence is the most valuable and yet it can not be sold – not even Nestle can do this – because it is available for free, everywhere! All space is silence, even if it is filled with sounds.

You take the first steps at the hand of silence, she holds the dance of your cells and receives your last breath …

Briant Rokyta is an Austrian artist based in Vienna. He follows the principle of PERMANENT CREATION in performance, drawing, painting, writing and sculpting and in providing lectures and workshops. PERMANENT CREATION is another way of viewing the world. Not through the rational mind but through art, through being, which is constantly creating itself: Each moment is creation and oneself is intimate part of it. Human society is also changing, a new level of relatedness arises and the age of separation is sinking. I find it helpful and joyful to use art in such a way to support this process in favor of a world that is more beautiful, integrative and playful. The best way of doing so is to show this potential of art, in various garments and as a way of life together with fellow artists. For further information please check out:
