The work takes the form of a diorama, traditionally a miniature representation of a particular scene or event. In this particular case, the slightly bizarre visual setting and unfitting sound is intentionally difficult to place geographically or otherwise, prompting the audience to weave their own narrative and project their own interpretations of what the presented scene is or isn’t.

The theatrical, viewer-oriented display further mirrors the enactment, or staging of one’s ego or self. Along these lines, you are invited to explore any illogical, inconsistent parts of your self, as they reflect through the immersive, meditative aspect of the piece.

The work was made for the exhibition-project Church of Ego by 280A artist collective, and first shown at U10 Art Space in Belgrade.
