A Metaphor of the Mind


A Metaphor of the Mind follows a journey into a troubled mind & its struggle to free itself from darkness. The screen in an empty canvas, a stage. The ink is a performer itself, as it freely finds its ways through the water, creating unprecedented forms. Like a maestro, I conducted the experience and let my performers bring it to life. I decided to explore this unpredictability and relate it to the human mind, which is as complex as the structure of color pigments within the water. A Metaphor of the Mind is, above all, a representation of the eternal war between the good and the evil, the black & white perception of things versus a colorful approach to life. We, human beings, have been given the right to free will. As says my initial quote from the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde movie from 1920, it’s self-determination that shapes who we truly are and how we see the world around us.
