Participants are the subject of the Monolith. When we are confronted with the Monolith we are asked about ourselves, our own origin and where evolution is adding our apperarance in a near future. New technologies culturally mutate our perception of the human body from a naturally self-regulated system to an artifically controlled and electronically transformed object. Installation referse relationship between human, screen and virtual world. It presents digital technology as invasion that has changed our culture, existance and perception of the world. When we come into the area of the Monolith our image is absorbed and transformed into the digital entity, floating into the next evolution step. We are confronted with fact that human thought and life are transforming through something that is inhuman. But on the other hand evolution is not only physicial form, but a transformation of consciousness and humanity as well. Entry into the virtual reality is going on in real time, while we are in two worlds simultaneously. Just the awarness moves into the virtual world while the body remains in the real world and time.
