An optical-sonic artwork to depict the primordial images of the inner space. A symbol uniting all the opposites were chosen to reflect the rapidly shifting paradigm. These phrases arose during the collaborative creative process;

“A world of endless death and renewal / A snake to symbolize the limit of material 
A threshold of cognition / A fool deciphering the illusion
Origin, universe and body / Sun, moon and creator
Archetype, truth, and regression / Time, space and reincarnation
Mysterious synchronicity / Unexplained serendipity
Collinear time axis, Light and darkness / Inevitable coincidence, absolute incidence
Mercurius, the prima materia of the alchemy and unconscious”
