Over the principle of complementarity of "The Opposite" stands this work that illustrates the dualistic desire to split and fracture characterizes Western Culture. This work proposes a dissection of the main assumptions on which has been built and on which Western Culture is sustained. It is a questioning of the paranoid vocation of fracture and separation (for the sake of classification) of Western philosophy that divides the different kingdoms of life in outside areas, hostile and mutually exclusive.
The work is constituted from two digital photographs (black and white) that were taken in a morgue (...):
1 – To the brain (of someone who has taken his life committing act of suicide) as a symbol of the excessive pragmatism is also the basis of rational and logical-mathematical thought, unable to understand those phenomena that belong to the realm of the absurd (the contradictory existence and life itself).
2 – And to the heart of someone who had died alone, abandoned, with no family or relatives to claim his body. Heart, seat of passion, according to the mystical doctrines, is the only tool of spiritual discernment in this world characterized by the illusion of appearances as clothing of the essential invisibility with visible veils.
(...) and were printed digitally on an equivalent of x-ray films and are mounted on two ancient negatospopes (ancient X-Ray view boxes). The two light boxes in which, randomly, alternates one flash light that unpredictable allow illuminate each image for a variable period of time on. At any time both images coincide lit. They are never simultaneously lit... Just match the two, occasionally, off; but we all know about it.
