A riddle has fascinated human civilization for ages. What is the purpose of our existence? In the pursuit of an answer, we have reached a mere understanding. Perhaps we are born to do what we do best. But this gives rise to a fallacy.
In the process of ‘doing our best’, the ‘our’ takes over the ‘doing’. The doer overpowers the deed, and the entire civilization gets trapped in the vicious cycle of ‘making a mark’. We feel our name, rather than our contributions, would give us a place in the vast eternity of time.
Thus artists shadow art, scientists shadow science, commodities shadow necessity, and brands shadow quality. Above all names shadow identity.
‘Anonymous’ makes an attempt to step aside from this bandwagon of achievement, and look at the world as it is. It is more about portraying a philosophy, than establishing a story line. More than to provide a solution, its intention is to raise questions. That the universe have existed nameless, long before we came into existence, and probably will, long after we are gone is a truth. Accepting this, ‘Anonymous’ puts forward the idea of a nameless world, a notion of living life in anonymity.
