Human consciousness is ambivalent. Left and right, dark and light. Good is opposite to bad. One who perceives the world in such a way might be compared to a person riding on a merry-go-round. Events are repeated. This installation is about freedom. Man is free to compare things with each other, trying to understand what those things mean. Everything is a game. Once you realize that life is like a merry-go-round.
