About Ego

Art Film & Conceptual Art Piece (2021)

 

In this art piece, de Bretagne interprets several philosophical ideas. On the one hand, the artist contemplates a physical manifestation of the disintegration of the ego. On the other, it closely resembles the cycle of life and death, from conception into dissolution. The artist also aims to illustrate a deep philosophical theory: the relativity of time to the observer.

“There are a great many things to be said about the meaning behind this piece; the key is the observer and their interpretation. I want the observer to feel completely free to come up with their own interpretation. After all, art is only relevant in the context of observation.

The art piece reveals something quite profound: it shows us the inner workings of the cosmos and all things within it, including us – life and death and back into life and back into death and so on, forever.” – Alix de Bretagne
