Duality - Complementary or Irreconcilable Opposites?

Art is used to question if our perception is a simplistic binary or a complex structure with multiple perspectives. Our reality is a creation of intuition as we discern between positive and negative states.

Through an artistic approach, we explore the principle of duality and ask: isn’t the “world” as we know it, a complex overall structure including multiple perspectives, not just black and white ones? Everyone divides their world into differing states - he or she judges whether something is positive or negative. 
Reality is hence a creation of our intuition.
