‘Ego Trip’ is the presence and journey of the artistic (human) ego to various important places (paradigmatic places and centers of power), among people, emphasizing artist’s personality, accentuating his conceitedness, stripping his ego. The ‘Ego Trip’ is the reaction to the often fake humbleness and social sensibility expressed by artists (among others). It is also questioning the ethical dimension of art and its credibility and sincerity. In that sense I made a suit that has an autonomous illumination and will emblaze my face (similar to a chandelier with arms extending out from the main body). This project resulted with a series of photographs of large format and video documentation.

Locations: Venice, Arctic, Times Square…

The shooting was taking place at twilight, between day and night, when both the autonomous illumination of the head and the surrounding space are visible (while shooting in the town there should be the right balance with the light of commercials and street-lights).

Ego Trip is also a part of the project The Arctic Circle
