the theatre of the mind

the theatre of the mind is a video-photographic project based on trust, on the exploration of oneself through conversations with people as enrichment, discovery and acceptance.
I would walk around London looking for subjects who attract me.
I would approach them in the street or wherever I went, telling them that they interest me, that I am doing a photography documentary video project called the theatre of the mind. If they agreed, I would enter their life, just for one day.
I would visit them in their homes, make a video interview and take photographs. We would play.
What is a mind? And what is a theatre?
The two words together make me think that perhaps, what we believe, we create.
Then, what is imagination?
Do we create reality?
Do we have a fate?
Do we choose who we are?
Are we conditioned by society, politics, religion, education, fear of people’s judgements?
Do we know our own power, who we really are?
Have you ever asked to yourself – who am I? An actor or truly you?
The videos are in English with English and Italian subtitles.
The English subtitles have been translated by me and Peter Dixon.
Each video rang from 25 to 50 minutes, for a total of 5 hours.
