Edition of 6 + 1AP

A group of rural workers carrying their tools are walking in the wilderness without any facial expression. There is no beginning nor ending.It's a black karma which seems to indicate the most contradicted and miserable social class in reality or even the history. The work leads us to a group of aimless routes by a kind of depression which is similar as the struggle and conflicts in life that we are quite familiar with, like the revolts and public movements in history. Reality goes back to its start. We are able to feel something will happen but have no clue what we could change.
