You are what u think
How we view ourselves comes not only from contemplation of our own personal qualities, but also from how we believe we are being perceived by others. We imagine how we must appear to our environment and how they must evaluate us based on their observations of us. Do they think we are funny or shy, intelligent or just awkward? We develop feelings about ourselves based on those observations and evaluations. So we are not actually being influenced by the opinions of others but instead we are being influenced by what we imagine the opinions of others to be. In my installation I will remove you from your environment and place you in a new one. In this new environment you will only be surrounded by yourself. With the help of imagination and poetry, I will ask you to look within to find your inner and pure self.
