An audio-visual experience which focuses on major human experiences: birth, life, death, different aspects of self and internal battles and changes that transform our self. A creation of a new, anthropomorphic self. A form that may be recognisable or not, a form of metamorphosis of mind and soul. The internal battles are expressed in a body-transformation game.

Is every crisis we go through transferred on our body? The body turns into a “battle field” of confusion, insecurity and mental distress. Where does the physical aspect of the body stop and where does our self gain importance? Life is a process of constant transformation. We may detect all the changes on our personality, on our mood, but mostly on our face and body. One can find beauty in our self and its ability to turn into something new through its objectification. A deep desire to “recreate” the self. Unlike what is commonly believed, our body is not what we have. Whether we like it or not, it is what we are. An open negotiation between matter and soul, the “raw material” in which our body can be deconstructed: flesh, form and colour. A complex, versatile object which serves as a vessel of soul, and allows each self the chance for personal interpretation.
