In Existence, I created an inert environment based on my own senses, through a set of fragments that shape parts of my body. In each of these fragments bacteria from the corresponding body part are grown. This aggregates the living dimension of the author’s existence to each fragment of the composition. In this atmosphere of perceptions, especially visual and olfactory, it becomes possible to cross the barrier of existence, allowing the creator, even if absent, to continue to exist in his work. The reflection in the mirror invites to question about who we are and how far existence can go.
