“City life and rapid growth of urbanization has an impact on people and how we interact with one another – our behavior, personality, values and relationships.
Being exposed to elevated complexities of the modern city life creates new social bonds and new attitudes toward others, and altering fundamental notions of being and self.
Abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality and existence reveals hallucinations, delusions and social dysfunction, which triggers identity disorders in which a person displays multiple distinct identities and alter egos. When the true self knowledge is attained the illusory personas are realized, and having recognized a sub personality, one suddenly feels naked and defenseless, as if his armor had dissolved. The personal delusion of self can have no real knowledge of truth, because it is not true, but delusive. That was the thought process that inspired Resurrection des Mannequins.”
