The topic: destruction. The structure: association of pictures, scenes, sounds and headwords of a “Madman's Dictionary”, not conforming to standards of thought, speech and action. The main character: Homo sapiens, the pride of creation, master of disaster, exterminator and self-exterminator. The basic question: Why do Homo sapiens destroy their living conditions? There is no answer to that question, but the question rotates in my brain, when I started making pictures and sounds without faces and voices of humans. Looking for traces of man-made destruction, I found visible and invisible signs of violation, contamination, extermination and the omen of self-extermination. Homo sapiens going gaga.
