“Know” – Video
“Sisyphus” – Video
Know : “As the lockdown around the world in the last few months has given restructure to the our life, our visual world has been limited. For many, an actual window frame has bracketed the world they are looking at. A composite image of the present moment is created from the repetition of images in the frames of our windows and screens, and this image is potentially formed by what we know.
But here I have tried to draw attention to something what we can do not know with this windows!
So I said in the Video: can you hear me? can you see me? can you touch me?”
Sisyphus : “Sisyphus is the king of greek mythology condemned to repeat the same task of pushing a boulder up a mountain only to see it roll down again and again. Camus says one must imagine Sisyphus happy.
According to Camus why get depressed about existetial meaning, when life is stuff to enjoy?
“From the moment absurdity is recognized, it becomes a passion, the most harrowing of all. But whether or not one can live with one's passions, whether or not one can accept their law, which is to burn the heart they simultaneously exalt – that is the whole question.”
