About the project:
Eva & eva.
Caught between two clouds
In one of those situations when one discovers
that something obviously good and flawless
may have evil intentions
one of them sees Jesus and piranhas on her back
lazy flies in the cars which don?t want to move by themselves
the other has beautiful legs of enameled steel
she enters through the calf and heads for the mouth
they don?t have to die to hang out in paradise.
