…It is an open secret that the consciousness of even the most rational and sober-minded person has some mythological terms of reference. I am exploring the Lost Paradise myth with its all beauty, violence and liberation. I blend our new icons of mass-produced toys, computer-game heroes and social net symbols with the meta-narratives seen in both the Old-Testament and Classical Mythology that have formed the basis of European civilization.
The Gods and Heroes of classical mythology have mutated and are now embodied in the virtual-reality of computer games. These have become the new fetishes of mass culture and have assumed their new ”flesh“ in the plastic of commercial toys.
