From "Ipseity" Photoessay (series)

The borders drawn in our mind. Constructed identities fluctuating and flexible as water.

Layers that clothe and shape us or imprison us, reflections of our surroundings that we assimilate and mirroring as our own.

Variable identities, such as the clothes that cover our body, help us to adapt to the environment, to find our way, to recognise our uniqueness, nevertheless, when these fictitious identities are fixed, clothes become immovable skins, huge problems arise, we begin to dwell in a body suffocated by external and internal impositions acquired by relational habits.

The only escape lies in the search and encounter with the only invariable. A difference and essential uniqueness.

Ipseity, from where creativity can arise.

Ipseity is a term used in neuroscience and contemporary psychology to describe the vital experience without the trappings of constructed identities. Our nuclear conscious being.
A process of discovering layers of ornamentation and artificial clothing. An allegorical project on identity. When constructed identities constrain us instead of helping us adapt to new situations, and how the awareness of the "Ipseity" our nuclear being means a new experience from where creation can arise. A liberation.
