This work is, at its essence, autobiographical. It consist of many different experiences, all of which are battling to have a part of my personality. My preference for things has changed dramatically and sporadically throughout my life. One thing may take prominence for a while, but soon another thing will take over. All experiences have, at one point the potential to be the one. I exist as a container, logically controlling the traffic of the things by considering the relation between me and society. To a certain extent, I am a robot which has been programmed by empirical education. In the end, my personality is made up of all of these experiences.
To explain such a confused mind, I featured and re-made a painting “The Triumph Of The Immaculate” drawn by Paolo De Matteis. I found that the narrative of the painting had similar concerns to my own introspections.
