Structuralism

Video, 3:00 min, 2016

Structuralism is a video interpretation of Czesław Miłosz’s poem of the same title.

According to Claude Levi-Strauss human brain’s structure defines the form of cultural texts created by him. The time and place of its creation does not have much influence. One of the crucial philosophical questions is how the ideas and things exist. Can something exist just because there is a name for it in language? On the other hand, does depreciation of the subject makes cognition easier? After all what is cognition and are we not left only with lamenting over our stupidity?
