Umbra Solis is my own mirror. And is a collective project, but so far is only me. I am a moltitude, I am my own collective. Maybe more people will join in with time. Maybe many have already joined and I am lying. To myself?
Umbra solis is the moon, the other, the alter-ego. A Zenith carries a Nadir. But is not exactly an opposite, a dark companion.
Umbra Ergo Sol Solis. Inumbro Ergo Sum
I cast a shadow, therefore I am.
C.G. Jung, in Psychoterapy:
The impulses underlying it certainly show their dark side to begin with, however much one may try to whitewash them; for an integral part of the work is the umbra solis or the Sol Niger of the alchemists, the black shadow which everybody carries with him, the inferior and therefore hidden aspect of the personality, the weakness that goes with every strength, the night that follows every day, the evil in the good.
Umbra solis is a shadow project. It collects some work done as research, and some presented as stand alone in various years in wich I have worked on art projects, alone, within my multitude.
