Everyone knows it, everyone has it. No pressure in the boiler means standstill. Yet the pressure always seems to be too high. Pressure is not tangible, pressure is mostly invisible. But is it high, it presses you down. OVER PRESSURE researches our manners in everyday life. It displays the truth, it shows private ideas, shows surprising thoughts. A colorful mood.
