The Decay

«The Decay, Raphael Esthitos’ imaginary speech to a non-existent audience» by Dimitris Tsekouras

Η φθορά

What happens if an “imaginary” person barges in a coffehouse that has been standing on a corner in Exarcheia district since 1915, and starts talking to the “non-existent” audience claiming that there is nothing more beautiful than Decay? A person named Raphael Esthitos leaves Patmos island for the first time in his life and comes to answer that and many more questions. As he reminds us: “Decay is the decisive difference between every creature that has ever appeared on earth and a possible God that has yet to appear.”
