from the series "M.O.". Modus Operandi (M.O.) is a Latin fraise used to describe a method of operating and people’s behavioral patterns. It is not always possible for an outside observer to grasp the logic of others’ behavior. Their actions assume the nature of the mysterious ambiguity that is open for any interpretation.
It is a sacral place, Ryōan-ji temple in Kyoto and its water garden the Kyoyochi Pond, built in the 12th century. Cleaning of the reservoir that has existed for 900 years is both ecological balance maintenance and heritage preservation. These guys do their job in the same way as they would have done it 900 years ago; it is a ritual, without having the beginning or the end, a work within eternity.
Music: Oleg Paiberdin "Anthem in Memory of H. Purcell". Performed by ensemble "Viola" conducted by Valery Averin.
