...ist nichts, ist Wahn und Irrtum

»...ist nichts, ist Wahn und Irrtum«​​​​​​​ /  
»...nothing but delusion and fallacy«​​​​​​​

This picture book is based on the last chapter of Vilem Flussers »History of the Devil«: »Sloth and the Sadness of the Heart«. By means of the Seven Deadly Sins, Flusser illustrates the human striving for enlightenment and knowledge. Each sin represents a different relation between humans and that which they reference to as reality or truth.

»Sloth and the Sadness of the Heart«, in nature melancholia, negates any existence
of reality and truth. Conscioussness is governed by loss of belief in the possibility of subjective enlightenment or objective knowledge.

Short storyarcs, rapidly collapsing, reflect a state of mind dissociated from conscious-ness, sense, meaning and reality. The world serves the illusionary self as a doubtful
and abysmal stage.
