sisyphus

The sisyphean task, which by essence is defined by an external imposition, is completed when it doesn’t see itself as a task, but as an ending. This work expresses the investigation of the paradox that, like Camus’ absurd, is cause and effect simultaneously – the overcome of an element’s limits causes its idiosyncrasies to turn against themselves, resulting in a self-sabotage.

 

We must confront this absurd, and keep it alive. Contemplate it in order to become stronger than the rock and, like Sisyphus, overcome the punishment.

 

A message tape recorded can’t be broadcasted because of the feedback caused by the microphone, resulting in a high-pitched sound that prevents the message from being heard.
