Shadow-reflection image interplay with a need for observer’s interaction,

Pondering questions on the nature of photography and light, the instalation sets parallels between the human search for the ultimate meaning/truth (through art, religion, science) and the equally unatainable resolution of a problem, set by ancient geometers of squaring the circle (of constructing a square with the same area as a given circle by using only a finite number of steps with compass and straightedge).
