When Callum Morton a couple of years ago for the first time visited the historic and contemporary milieu, he coincidentally re-read Albert Camus’ The Myth of Sisyphus at the same time. This lead to the developing of a new piece relating and interpreting several dimensions of the specific site – historically, architecturally and existentially. In addition, the piece is reading the myth in relation to contemporary living and a global context of society.

The old myth about Sisyphus tell about a man who as a punishment for defying the gods, had to push a rock up a mountain for eternity.
