The book selection includes volumes of the Russian philosopher Nikolai Berdyaev, the Russian existentialist and religious philosopher Lev Shestov and one of the greatest of all novelists the Russian writter Leo Tolstoy.
With Six Kilos of Doubt I express the notion that philosophycal thought has no place in modern man`s life. How it is rejected for and replaced by the principles of free market. I use a set of old scales on one side of which I place 6 KG of philosophy works by the titans of philosophic thought.
And on the other side 6KG in led weights. Thusly I also present the viewer with a tangible measurement unit for doubt.
