ONE, NO ONE AND ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND

ONE, NO ONE AND ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND

ONE, NO ONE AND ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND is a direct translation of the title of a novel written by Italian writer Luigi Pirandello in 1926. The gist of the novel is that people have multiple selves that they project and the main character Vitangelo’s journey to discover his true self.
The art pieces above try to portray that. A single item can multiply, into hundreds or thousands with the use of mirrors. Different angles suggest different perspectives yet they stem from the same object. There is repetition yet uniqueness from different views. The thorns are sharp, yet they stand out and grab your attention to touch it. The different colour schemes portray the different moods, bright and sunny, fiery and angry, calm and contemplative depending on the viewers’ perspective and mood. Thus, ONE, NO ONE AND ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND makes us question the reality as we see it. There are many sides to a story; many different roles that we play; many different facades that we project; there are multiple truths. Very rarely do things appear as neatly as we would like them to. There may be common themes that repeat but new angles also appear.
