'Buridan’s Donkey' was created in the minds and the speeches of eighteen boys and girls. The video shows some people who have never met before and, setting out from their own emotions and thoughts, tell each other about their passions. Three images doom out of the chaos: the wood, the church and the factory. The wood represents innocence and obviousness, disturbed by conscience. The church represents the necessity and fragility of culture’s artificial security. The factory represents the reconciliation of foolishness and lucidity: the redeeming action and the attempt to dance in spite of everything.
