ON THE SHOULDERS
OF GIANTS

Do you find yourself daydreaming about oneiric worlds, carried away by your imagination, or are you more a rational person, believing only in what is tangible and defined?

In the ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’ these two visions of the world collide. An interlaced journey of common people and imaginary figures will draw attention on how interconnected we are to one another. Sparking the idea that imagination is important for adults too, and it should not be something that we leave behind in the process of growth.

Our identities as human beings originate from reflections of our behaviours that we can capture other people’s eyes. These unconscious reactions, derived from the interactions with other beings, disappear when we lose contact with the others, breaking a reflecting mirror that leads to the collapse of our own identities.

Will we be able to retrace the steps to our original selves through oneiric projections, keepers of our memories and identities?
