The focus of this project is an exploration of the idea that everything is based on the interpretation and rearrangement of historic myths in order to make new connections and translations which bear relevance to contemporary reality. The ancient whisper of these powerful myths becomes a tool for the exploration of the understanding that human behaviour is a repetitive entanglement of interaction where present social consciousness can not be isolated from the historical nature of man.
