“I AM is Pondering the Self" by Eugenia Loli
This artwork is about the true identify of any individual, compared to the “self”, a mere shadow. The self is a reactive, selfish personality which is symbolized by the rather uninteresting patterned mirror. We wear this personality every day, and we mistake it for our true self. Our hero (picture is of Hans Christian Andersen circa 1865), has just removed his distortion glasses, and realized that he’s not the delusional “self” anymore, but “I AM”, a much more beautiful and graceful entity.
