the work is taking us on a voyage exploring the true-false dichotomy: departing from classical logic with it’s highly formalized binary codes and strict rules on how to make conclusions, it quickly turns up that hardly anything in our reality corresponds to that pattern. when perception is taken into the picture, it gets blurry: how do we interpret the cues we get and which meanings do we ascribe to them? and how is that to be distinguished from truths that are merely made up? in the end, the chaos emerging from letting go of all attempts to structure what we experience ultimately leads to freedom.
