SUPERIMPOSE

2017

Memories, dreams, visions, nightmares, thoughts; everything seems to be real. Our existence consists of a superposition of images created by the mind. Each lived story is part of a larger consciousness, which seeks to experience itself. Infinite are the possibilities of a reality, of existing in this plane, we humans travel in time constantly altering the past, the present and the future.

We move energy with the mind, we are together and we have to separate and when we separate we are united. The illusion of separation is what gives us life. This series tries to explore in the world of the illusion of separation through characters that inhabit worlds created by the superposition of these layers that are no more than the different elements of their individual consciousness. In order to enter the pure consciousness we must also get out of it. This duality is necessary for experimentation. Without stories there is no collective consciousness; without images there are no stories.

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few people close to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” - Albert Einstein
