I am constantly trying to fit and mold different parts to a new whole. My strive is to orchestrate fragments to settle in place, as if they were cogwheels of one operating machine. However, recently I found out about my new health condition: my bone marrow, my body’s basic production system has gone off beam. It’s producing too many platelets. These platelets are all healthy, nothing is wrong with them, they are just too many. In this challenge, I’ve decided to reveal what was veiled in my system, thus, my subject matter is “overflow”. Nobody can see it, it took time to understand it, it’s there, hidden within and it has its consequences. What happens when the ultimate basics of a systems goes wrong?
