NO ONE IS AN ISLAND

NO ONE IS AN ISLAND

No one is an island 

This work finds his inspiration in a very old poem of John Donne. 'no man is an island' I've read his words and felt connected with the idea of no one can be on it's own. Everybody is connected with a past, with genetic information, with a family, with an origin,... all connected in this world as one race being human. Having the freedom to travel and walk like one on this blue sphere, just hanging there in the dark universe. Living and thinking in borders, walls, fences...making everyone disconnected in a global world. This is my metaphorical interpretation of this old poem.
'No Man is an Island' No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
MEDITATION XVII Devotions upon Emergent Occasions John Donne
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.
