The video processes the myth of Sisyphus and identifies it spatially and visually, through the interpretation of Albert Camus for the absurd hero, whom Sisyphus personalizes. A set of visual and spatial tools reveal elements of the myth: perpetual repetition, vanity, physical effort, entrapment, and the influence of time. The man who made mankind equal to the gods, defeating death, now spends this eternity trapped in an endless journey. When one repeats this name, he seems to wheeze out of exhaustion, connecting the word to the hero’s fate. Where are the real bonds; in external or internal forces? When does the absurd hero appear?
