"Attracted by the opposite?"

Do people really feel attracted by the opposite? Black does not exist
without white, good not without bad. The one is depending on the other.
If an opposite is existing, at all, the existing “standard” is being
defined via its opposite, which is setting the actual values, the
relations between each other. Being attracted by the opposite is
actually no more than searching consciously or unconsciously for the
“whole”, an attempt to find an unity combining and relating the two
opposite poles to each other. An uptopia? The selection of videos is
spotlighting not only the phenomenon of the duality from different
points of views and positions, but also the resulting relativity.
