Prakriti is called by the Sânkhya philosophers indiscreet, and defined as the perfect balance of the materials in it; and it naturally follows that in perfect balance there cannot be any motion . In the primal state before any manifestation , when there was no motion but perfect balance, this Prakriti was indestructible, because decomposition or death comes from instability or change.
I wanted to create a labyrinth which would somehow help to prevent a compositional idea from establishing itself all too quickly. I had the idea of working on all the walls pretty well at the same time,as if they were one large painting completely surrounding me. By constantly wandering in the labyrinth I sought to realise a form of “de-composition”
Because of this many have cried out: The goal of ephemeral life is immortality ! In the temporary living organism these two streams collide: (a) the ascent toward composition , toward life, toward immortality; (b) the descent toward decomposition , toward matter , toward death , Both streams well up from the depths of primordial essence .
We know that under the image revealed there is another which is truer to reality and under this image still another and yet again still another under this last one, right down to the true image of that reality, absolute, mysterious, which no one will ever see or perhaps right down to the decomposition of any image, of any reality.michelangelo antonioni
