Becoming an Image

I consider “Becoming an image” an act of transformation.

I become something that is not myself, it is an idea of myself. I become a conceptual object.

I accompany these image with words so to narrow your reading in support of my messages.

“Becoming an Image is a ‘topos’: it testifies to an age-old urge to transcend the boundaries of space and time that confine the human body.”
