The principle of filling in the public space with words, symbols that have acquired totally different meaning through time. For example, the concept of "Sloth" has transformed its negative meaning into a source of pride and luxury. "Lies" closely connected with feelings of guilt and shame, has become commonplace. "Arrogance" (primarily immoral inclination) has become the usual way of communicating with the outside world. Exhibiting at the show all the familiar characters allows us to trace the reaction of people and stages of development of new, modern values of ancient evils, which have purchased the positive reaction of society. All terms are handed down in the public space in the so-called "places of power" of the Ukrainian capital (the Bald Mountain, Vladimir Hill, "Kitaevo" Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, Starokievskaya mountain), so that they acquire the sacred meaning, exaggerating the existing reality.
