This video has been influenced by Albert Camus and his essay L’Été (1954). It is a response based on the replication of his words. As such, Variations is an echo of his point of view about how useless is the human effort, and how limited is the vision of the mankind. Which constructs structures and develops infrastructures that are prone to fall down – to become ruins.

“These stones, torn from the mountain, serve man in his plans. (…) Of course, destroying stone is not possible. It is merely moved from one place to another. In any case, it will last longer than the men who use it. For the moment, it satisfies their will to action. That in itself is probably useless. But moving things about is the work of men; one must choose doing that or nothing.” Albert Camus (L’Été)
