In 1936, Jacques Lacan theorized what is called the “mirror phase”, the moment when the child looks at himself in the mirror for the first time and the core of the ego begins to form. It is precisely in this phase that the connection between the organism and the environment is created.
We live in a world in which everything, from work to human relations, goes at twice the speed of previous generations. We no longer have time to stop and observe what is happening around us and, above all, within us. I believe that a greater awareness of ourselves helps us to better understand the society in which we live, thus becoming a tool to improve it.
Participants were asked to observe themselves in the mirror for 10 minutes in a dark and silent room. A fake mirror, or two-ways mirror, allowed me to film all the sessions which were then edited together and speeded up to compose the work. To date, 56 people have participated in the project.
