APOTROPÍA

Entelechia Obscura

 

ABSTRACT 

Entelechy is the Aristotelian term used to indicate the inner purpose inherent in every being or reality, a kind of state of perfection of something that has achieved the purpose for which it was predisposed.

An eternal and ideal principle, entelechy is in a constant dialectical relationship with the material conditions, bodies and worlds, that confront it.

Will the achievement of entelechy be possible for a being deprived of freedom of action? "Entelechia Obscura" arises from this and other questions, though it leaves any possible answer suspended. The protagonist of the video is a man-mouse, a sort of guinea pig for scientific experiments, a projection of an existential condition in which a greater force takes over.
