This mechanical installation is based on C. Lévi-Strauss' theory that the “purpose of myth is to provide a logical model capable of overcoming a contradiction".

Interpreting mythical characters as personifications of human behavior, this work brings oppositions together into one single image. Large-scaled, constantly moving mirror foils are reflecting the viewer's distorted image and revealing its contradictionary nature.

Apollon & Dionysos:
The greek god Apollon is the god of reason, of clarity and rationality. Dionysos is the god of emotionality, of ecstasy. This dualism is united in the area of tension between the viewer's true reflection and its total distortion.

Kairos & Chronos:
Chronos is the sequential quantity of time who stands in opposition to Kairos, the god of the right moment – the quality of time. Those two views on time are represented through sequential concrete horizontal distortions of the viewer's reflection.
