Left or right – it’s the same. If you turn your head around, you invariably become like someone and follow the proposed course. But there is another option - to look straight and move your own way to become what others are not. To become yourself. Not agreeing with others is the only opportunity for self-determination.

The work is a model of “views”. It demonstrates that our life position is literally determined by the direction of our views. So, while looking at the rotation of the left figure, you can notice that the central (empty) figure repeats that movement. If you keep an eye on the right figure, then after a while the central figure will duplicate it.

There is no montage at all – our brain really works like that. This simple visual experiment shows how easy it is to manipulate or to be an object of someone’s manipulation.
