Description

This work is inspired by the music ‘Blind Man’ by Barry Truax and by the following text by Schiller:

“Eternally chained to only one single fragment of the whole, man himself grew only to be a fragment: with the monotonous noise of the wheel he drives everlastingly in his ears, he never develops the harmony of his being, and instead of imprinting humanity upon his nature he becomes merely the imprint of his occupation, of his science”.

The music acts as the structure for the visual.
