Will to meaning (2010)

Video

The video consist of very simple 2 layers, picture and Audio. The Picture side is my own "home-video" shooting of my dog, Chili, running free.
The Audio side is Dr. Victor Frankl commenting on human happiness and how mankind has a "will to meaning". Dr. Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. It was due to his and others' suffering in the concentration camps that he came to his hallmark conclusion that even in the most absurd, painful and dehumanized situation, life has potential meaning and that therefore even suffering is meaningful.
