The identity is constructed through what we decide to tell the viewer. For the past months, I recorded every conversation I had, and then I made a call: girls with long dark hair, height 1.60. Replicas of myself. More often than not, I have the unbearable need to live as characters following a script, perhaps, to liberate myself from the burden of my own life. We have all become voyeurs. Inside four walls, Mise en Abyme of sorts.  At first instinct, we try to hide, cover, and develop through playful portrayal, but our need for intimacy and understanding of each other in the most primitive of our personalities overcome us.
