I Am What I Am.
“Each thing is the same with itself and different from another”.
Law of identity

This project aims to explore the identity concept. From display mannequins to real life humans trough masks and metamorphoses of inexistent identities. Inspired by the Butoh image of androgyny, whose mixing of sexes and roles epitomizes social disorder. Untitled Identity gives the step back on the philosophical expression of one’s identity. Walt Whitman wrote “We contain multitudes” referring to the fact that we see ourselves radically differently in different contexts.

“Socrates: How about sounds and colours: in the first place you would admit that they both exist?
Theaetetus: Yes.
Socrates: And that either of them is different from the other, and the same with itself?
Theaetetus: Certainly.
Socrates: And that both are two and each of them one?
Theaetetus: Yes.”
(Plato’s dialogue)
