Pavlidis travels throughout the country in a constant search for an image he hasn't seen before—a paradox that clearly echoes the contemporary Sisyphean task described by Shayegan: he appreciates the virtues of tradition, at the same time constantly looking for new images among its ashes, within new ruins. This kind of enigmatic contradiction may well represent the fingerprint of an entire era. And Pavlidis seems to be helplessly attracted to enigmatic contradictions and carefully concealed secrets.
