Cognition is centered on the idea of life as never-ending play full of theatricality, in which people are actors. There is always friction in the relationship between performance and life. Through images representing the human body in different positions the author wants to express the tension of individual associated with acting out different roles and what it may follow from this: superficiality, illusion, balance or lack of it, rationalism imposed by the roles and lack of rationalism while performing. It partially touches on a very broad concept that can be perceived as comment on the role of man in every-day play. It was originally produced as a book, a result of collaboration between photographer, performer and poet.
