Duality


The work was inspired by "The Birth of Tragedy," a philosophical work by Friedrich Nietzsche that explores the origins of Greek tragedy and the Apollonian and Dionysian forces in human nature. The Apollonian aspect represents the rational, logical, and ordered part of our nature, while the Dionysian represents the irrational, emotional, and chaotic part.


In a world where people are constantly bombarded with information and stimuli, the Apollonian-Dionysian theme reminds us of the importance of finding balance in our lives. We need to embrace both our rational and irrational sides in order to be fully human and experience the full range of emotions that life has to offer. In the creative process, the tension between reason and emotion, order and chaos, and tradition and innovation have been used as a basis for the piece. It encourages us to question and challenge established norms and conventions to create something new and meaningful.
