Pause is about a journey searching for a way to pause everything.
I was eager to grow when I was little. Everything felt slow, even time. But as I grew older, time didn't walk, it ran. Everything felt so fast and there is always the moment when I just want to pause everything. The grown-up world is so different than what I expected, yet I tried to search for a way, struggled and perplexed. The answer is neither.
What if the thing I need is not a pause, never a pause…then what is it?
