This weekend I photographed the pillowfight under the Millenium monument at Heroes square in Budapest, Hungary. Just like during the years before there were a lot of joyful participants enjoying the fun of the event, hitting each other until their stamina lasted. Then they cleaned up the mess caused by the feather and other stuffing released by the pillows.

It is hard to imagine how strong structures can be made from the everyday strings of pasta we eat for dinner. Yet Hungarian students every year spend long hours but rather days building spaghetti bridges only to have them broken (or blown) into pieces for the sake of the Reccs (meaning ‘crack’ in Hungarian) competition – no wonder some of them can’t bear to watch it.
