Film still montages from the movie ‚Terminator 2 – Judgement Day‘ by James Cameron.
The unknown, and everything that refuses to be easily classified, held onto or used, as well as everything that changes, is known to unsettle us and to evoke fear. In Christianity, these aspects of life and death were seen as devilish – and women were said to be the carriers of evil. Such attitudes can be observed until today – for example sometimes in Hollywood movies. In this sequence of images, the conventional Passion and Salvation of Christ, as seen in the film ‚Terminator 2‘, is revalued. It describes another story, far from moralistic allocations. Changes inside a person and changes of matter – they go together and happen in parallel. The face of Sarah O‘Connor (in the movie she is the mother of mankind‘s savior) changes through many emotional expressions. The robot made of liquid metal, the terminator symbolizing evil, also constantly changes, like an element changing its physical state.
