dialectics of consciousness
Single channel video
The video portrays a counter argument forming an inner conflict of a person- the words are spoken through voice and text- visual and sound, both running at the same time and conversing with each other while forming their own conflicting views. The premises is built upon Dostoevsky’s phrase ‘To be overly conscious is a sickness, a real thorough sickness..’ from Notes from the Underground. I take from this phrase and form my own inner conflict.
