Still MADMAN'S DICTIONARY; Nuclear Reactor 1
The topic: Destruction. The structure: Association of pictures, scenes, sounds and headwords of a fictitious MADMAN'S DICTIONARY, not conforming to standards of thought, speech and action. The main character: Homo sapiens, the pride of creation, master of disaster, exterminator and self-exterminator. The basic question: Why does homo sapiens destroy his living conditions?
There is no answer to that question, but the question rotates in my brain, when I started making pictures and sounds without faces and voices of humans. Looking for traces of man-made destruction I found visible and invisible signs of violation, contamination, extermination and the omen of self-extermination: Homo sapiens going gaga.
