Model: The artist

Artist's statement:

In the world of speed and dizzying technological development, each of us is called upon to process a truly vast amount of information in the shortest possible time. The sensory organs are staying permanently on stressful alertness and the reflexes are awakened. The volume of incoming information and its processing procedure, which will lead - as a stimulus - to the manifestation of a reaction, requires filters that will deem it positive or negative. The "chemical" composition of the filters includes - as structural elements - fragments of our personality, which in turn have been structured by the receptors we have had from our childhood to those of today, who are called to carry out the filtering process. As far as we stay alive, we constantly absorb information and sometimes - by wisely exploiting this treasure - we learn and improve and some other times we fail and decline. But over time we certainly evolve into a different self, which now realizes, while looking in the mirror, that it was always trapped "locally in time" in thoughts, images, and impulses (ideologies) that prevailed due to the current political, economic and generally social conditions of the "microcosm" that we inhabit.
