Hundun is a faceless being representing primal and fertile chaosin the Daoist tale of the Zhuangzi. Its story implies themes such as the relationship between society and the individual, the tendency of the majority to uniformise against those who are different from them. The fact that the originally amorphous shape of Hundun is being reduced to an anthropomorphic figure by a tight suit as a classic type of uniform points out ironically the narrowing of individuality and creative potential.

Several clothes hangers bear the label VOR, an abbreviation standing for Red October Garment Factory. The factory of the Hungarian socialist era is not just historically interesting: the socialist work ethos, the glorification of over-achievement and the notion of accumulation in the installation provide an opportunity to reflect on the unsustainability of our consumer culture as well.

Violetta Vigh, Media Design student at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, is interested in different forms and technologies of media art, searching for ways to express a phenomenon, concept or story in visual metaphor. She is interested in interdisciplinary and research-based projects, such historical and sociological topics like the emergence of the heliocentric worldview, the history of aviation technology, the changing roles of women in society during the great witch-hunts or the cultural impact of the music programme of Radio Free Europe.
