The text in the video is compiled from various famous advertising (and one political) slogans; the fusion of a beautiful scenic landscape slowly fading in and out in the background with the ominous soundtrack creates a strong contradiction and puts the kind harmonious text into perspective.

12 - ROUND TRIP, Cagdas Kahriman (Turkey)
"Beings, objects are such that, in themselves, their disappearance changes them. It in this sense that they deceive us, that they delude us. But it is in this sense, too, that they are faithful to themselves, and that we must be faithful to them, in their minute detail, in their precise figuration, in the sensuous illusion of their appearance and their sequencing. For illusion is not the opposite of reality ; it is a more subtle reality which enwraps the primary one in the sign of its disappearance."
The perfect crime, Baudrillard

“Circle” was created with images of found footage, with the intent to give an overview related to nature.
What's wonderful in the world? The creation and imagination are most important things. The video has different levels of reading, a first overview shows the wonders of nature and similarity to the human body. A global natural and human brain.
The second level of reading instead shows the power of creativity and of human possibilities, but also its downsides. From the beauty of perfection, the power of creation. The supremacy of the creative destruction.
