Egg perspective- the beginning

Video concept:

 It’s representing the human need towards understanding and learning in all its complexity.  

 It’s also often connected to repetitive actions in hope for new results or understandings. Repetitions that are never the truly the same, but that produce a sickly repetitive simulation in the mind of the seeker.

 The fact that understanding may lie beyond the current scope of action or wishes often escapes the searching party. Therefore the green salad that opens up in time.

The visual system failure represents an introductory point for a new perspective – a vertical understanding that allows the seeker a more complete but still unclear path on the roads towards knowing and understanding. The sounds and video in itself contains the following importance: the slowing of time-introspective with some base sounds that explain the depth of the thoughts, the colors and their symbols, the symbolism of and egg as well as wheat. 

Examples for further reading explanations :

 Egg :

One of the most comprehensive symbols, equally suggestive in a spiritual, physiological, and cosmological sense. Among other things, it stands for primordial chaos, the universal matrix, the great Deep, the Virgin Mother, and also for the kosmos or world egg produced from it. As chaos or space, it is the virgin egg, unproduced; this is fructified by the spiritual ray, and from it then issues the Third Logos. The egg is used in Easter celebrations as the symbol of the renewal of life.( http://www.experiencefestival.com/a/Egg/id/105081)

The symbolism of the vertical perspective:

The concepts of verticality and horizontality need to be the background without either one dominating. Similar to dualities of symbols, they can be considered as dualities of the the contextuality of time.But content is a type of trance or “filter” through which the world is seen. Not only in structuring the understanding of the present but of formulating the past but of visualizing the future. The trance is not only on contentual symbols, the increasing “thingness” of the post-modern world, but of the causal connections between things. The paradigm of history is structured on causality and understood in blocks of time. It may offer a unique and new perspective to look at history from the perspective of simultaneous events rather than linear events.In the same way that a new perspective might be gained on overall history, a new view might be gained on popular culture and the simultaneous appearance of particular contentual symbols (or products) within it. Looking at history and culture from a “vertical” rather than

“horizontal” perspective may show startlinbg new relationships and clusters of events and objects that were previously “hidden” from view.(http://www.symbolism.org/writing/books/spc/correspondence/page2.html)

Green (used in the salad):

 Culturally, green has broad and sometimes contradictory meanings. In some cultures, green symbolizes hope and growth, while in others, it is associated with death, sickness, envy, or the devil. The most common associations, however, are found in its ties to nature. For example, Islam venerates the color, as it expects paradise to be full of lush greenery. Green is also associated with regeneration, fertility and rebirth for its connections to nature. Recent political groups have taken on the color as symbol of environmental protection and social justice, and consider themselves part of the Green movement, some naming themselves Green parties. This has led to similar campaigns in advertising, as companies have sold green, or environmentally friendly, products. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green)

Wheat – GARB: This heraldic term is derived from the French “gerbe”, meaning a sheaf of any kind of grain (usually wheat). :It represented that the harvest of one’s hopes had been secured. Also a symbol of hospitality and prosperity. Wheat is the quintessential nutritional plant. In ancient cultures it was believed to contain the mystery of life and death and thus it became a sacred plant. In Christianity, the heads of wheat symbolized the Eucharistic Bread of Life.
