I'm exploring the impossible task of objectively rendering and understanding the self by using a neutral intermediary reference in order to create an abstract representation of the artist's body by using a piece of string as a tool to measure the circumference of different body parts and subsequently recording them as ellipses to be read as flat lines or as vectors in space. By questioning and examining the physicality of one's form and identity I aim to create a representation of the struggle to understand and accept who you are while building a bridge between oneself and the rest of everything and everyone and the complexities that emerge from the inevitable loss occurring in translation between the external and internal.
