The installation is constructed of two monoliths, diagonally placed inside the room. The contrast between dark space and luminosity (monoliths) creates an illusion of captured universal being. It penetrates a new, outer space, continuing its movements and existence despite the imposed limitations. Dark space have a double function: to limit and to edit. The light alludes to an exit, and while being dispersed throughout the space it generates numerous rays that, in turn, create diagonally shadows (Codes). The light is Being's performance; in different cultures it symbolizes enlightenment, it is the sustainer of life, main force in the universe that everything begins and ends with. The lightness and darkness, day and night signify binary oppositions and alternate virtues. The inherence of these elements corresponds to Yin/Yang,  where Yin   contains   a  trace  of  Yang and vice versa, creating a
balance in the universe. The light spreads across objects and material world, radiates rays of hope. Its qualities do not only imply survival, but process of living. It embodies the universal consciousness, faith and hope.  The light glows outside a cold and limited materiality. Our human experiences are reflected in its peculiar surface, exposing the numerous attributes of  the  contemporary   world:   totalitarian    politics,  institutions,
technological networks, economy and surveillance.
The work addresses universal, human experiences and implies transformations of our consciousness.
