"In Greek, the Olympic Games are called Agones which means Agony, or, 'I am 'striving towards Being' and this is why the champions were venerated as Immortals.
Chrysalis is a logocentric monument, generated by the numerical modelling of the Greek word ΧΡΥΣΑΛΛΙΣ, reminding us that the Olympic Games were not 'games' of survival, but, expressions of the Agony of trespassing, like the Chrysalis, the instinct of survival itself".(P. Kasda, conference of the Beijing Biennale 2008)
