This artwork, titled "Archetypus," explores the theme of "Repetition and a Return to the Archetypal," featuring repeated duplications of a woman adorned with a bird mask, signifying humanity's inherent desires. The piece articulates the necessity of a logical structure underpinning art and civilization itself. In this narrative, logic serves merely as a restraint on the senses, propelling a perpetual cycle akin to reflections in facing mirrors, without an end, merely looping within a nested structure. This endless cycle could well represent the construction of human history, culture, warfare, and conflicts, extending to the cosmos itself.
