Het Burn-Out Bos [The Burn-Out Forest]
In The Burn-out Forest you feel, by someone else’s experiences, what it’s like to have a burn-out.
Lately more and more people topple over all around me. They are burnt out and exhausted. Why does this happen? It looks as if we are trying to reach a heaven by working very hard. In The Burn-Out Forest the people that fell over on their way there are given a voice. They put the public on hold and let them experience what it feels like to have a burn-out. Maybe the heaven that we work so hard for is already here. Now. At this moment.
