Entry Description: Friedrich Nietzsche, the nineteenth century German philosopher questioned ‘what is truth?’ stating that truth cannot be recognized; stating everything that is knowable is an illusion. He declared knowing always involves creating transference of meaning which people associate with metaphors. The reason that all knowledge involves metaphors is that knowing is supposed to be ‘adequate expression of an object in the subject’. I considered, through the creation of this image, the reality of one’s world without metaphors to illustrate ones own reality without illusions. Encasing the subject within their illusion, reasserting and reaffirming that all is construction and myth.
