My works represent the study of the relationship with nature and culture in the highlight moments of our lives. Its transience given by the rush of time, paradoxically in contrast with the slowness of the same time in difficult moments.
This is a work that is part of a series “WhoamI?”
In an empty room, I plugged in, creating a performance environment, within which the user has the opportunity to devote time only to himself (something rare now days, so precious) in order to face the original question that has no time

A suitcase, generally closed and deliberately forgotten in the attic of the house.
A mirror to look in oneselves eyes.
A single question: "Who am I?"
How many times we ask ourself "Who am I"? If we are realy every day in our life "ourselves", or do we put on a series of masks, the roles that have been attributed by the society and the microcosm in which we live. Never, or very few times. Those times more often for fear we refer the question to answer us truthfully. We recognize that the profound question we ask ourselves about who we are, we get to that existential inner suffering of the man of all time.
The dichotomy of the suitcase. The colour of white, to go back to that state of purity, spontaneity, honesty and humility At the same time there are the belts for the closure (to strengthen the concept). Rather than asking ourself this question, we prefer keeping the suitcase closed, storeged in the attic, which corresponds to not face the question.
The dichotomy of the question. The background of the application is a mirror that invites to look in oneones eyes with sincerity with no lies. The question, represented by a blue light, the color of contemplation and spirituality. The light is intense, and disturbs and annoys the eye in the path of vision, also due to the fact that the same reading brings us to the existential search for an answer, every time and almost never easy to deal with.
