...You remember how hard it was for me to come up with the title for that work. It went without a title for quite a long time. In the end, I decided to leave it untitled. When I came to the decision, I guess it helped me to relax, in a sense I decided it was not decided, then something I had thought about and then forgotten, came back to me. And that’s the fact that the result of my recording of reality in its most simple binary form – up and down, or water and air, can be understood as a document. However, in the concept of the document there lies a hidden feeling of fear about reality as not being secure anymore. Not in the sense of a change in our perception, which has been shaped by cultural models for a long time, but in the sense of physical changes of reality itself. When I say a document, in this context that is fear of the future too. Fear of the direction we are headed to, from increasing irrationality of our cultural and ideological models.
