Mirror is a project where I show the love for one self by focusing on the soma-esthetics (the body) and the admiration for our sculpture and its evolution towards beauty at its summit. Our external tool to control this evolution is the mirror, through which we daily seek any changes. By constantly repeating this we fall in love of ourselves, and we discover in our own body the first love. At this point we start making plans and projects to improve this morphology by seeking satisfaction. However we never become satisfied, so we try then to change this soma-esthetic by using external elements to see the reactions of other bodies towards our own (love, admiration, jealousy, etc.) This mechanism needs first of all our love as well as the love of others. The tool for transmitting this love to other soma-esthetics is a body exhausting its own bodily means (movement, voice, liquids: tears, saliva and sperm).
