In arriving to the essence of the question of being, E. Husserl’s Reduction concept forms the basis of parenthesis – ephoké. With this method, the search for the essence of existence appears as an image. The phenomenological reduction of existence is symbolized by the glass sphere in this arrangement, the plates on which the servos are placed point to the parentheses for the question of existence. Where they fall into this suspension is dogmatic definitions, objects, locations, ritual rules, borders, geographies or identities. Experiencing this reduction intellectually requires different suspensions for each consciousness. The glass sphere aims to achieve this by showing both the image, the viewer’s illusion, and the environment.
