As it shows on the challenge page, many different meanings are offered with the word spare. I choose the “elegantly simple” and decided to illustrate it with this very concise collage. A pinky sunset sky and a flock of birds on which come those words “Le Silence nous mine” which means “Silence saps us”. I kept the spaces between the letters as they originally were put on the wall where I found them. These words are strong and I think they reflect the lifes of many of us in big cities. The more we physically gather the less we talk! In smaller towns and villages people still talk. Although as anywhere else, smartphones and sms are taking over!
