dc.description.abstract The thesis is an art based project with the written part. It consists of a noncommercial music video and photography (for the single cover). The written part is not a research; it is an additional material and investigation of the references and symbolism from the art project. The main topic of the art work is fear. My purpose was to understand what is fear from a philosophical perspective; and how it is possible to use an art creation as a way to eliminate one’s mind from fear. This project is an existential journey into the symbolism of paintings of the early Renaissance; it is a melancholic voyage to a medieval dreamland, where the boundary of reality is erased. The final point of the trip in this story is a personal transformation through the state of catharsis, or at least an attempt to rise a new question inside of a spectator. Catharsis is a basic phenomenon in art. I still believe that art exists to save the world and make it better. A brave sight into the eyes of inner darkness brings us freedom and peace. The process is painful, but purifying. I try to awake my demons and set them free in a hope, which will then in return, help other people to see their own demons and become free through going along the same path of release. I try to dig into my deep thoughts and set up my own questions in the works to help other people see their inner questions, which are important for them at the moment. en
