let the heat kill you.

Small beautifully designed illustrated book with an essay by Michael Stone on Zen and Yoga practice in everyday life with drawings by Emilie Lindsten.

"My heart is beating. Your heart is beating. All our hearts are beating. And they are equal. There is a bird out there, on the other side of our window. Her heart is beating so fast. The streetcar hums along, attached to those wires. Those wires run all the way to the nuclear plant. And there are fish swimming around the plant who have little heartbeats and big eyes that always look like they’re teary. They are all equal to you."

Designed and published by Andreas Vermehren Holm and Forlaget Virkelig with the support of our dear friends at Copenhagen Sangha.

drawings and photography by Emilie Lindsten, published by Jane&Jeremy 2015

The book is a selection of pastel drawings and photographs made during years 2013/14. The title is inspired by the continuity of Lindsten’s artistic practice as a thread woven into her life during her pivotal year of 2014. At that moment, Lindsten spent most of her efforts travelling between London and Sweden, as well as spending a few months in India and Finland. In time, the drawings came to constitute a personal diary, representing on paper a reflection inspired by observations of atmospheres, colours and elements.
