I Am He As You Are He As You Are Me is an intimately revealing self-portrait that explores the concept of transition. The work delves into my lived experience with mental health and the transformative journey I am undertaking to restructure the very essence of my existence. Within this pondering portrayal, I assume the role of a bridge, delicately spanning the gap between two distinct realms—the physical and the digital. My fascination with these realms lies in the disparity between ever-evolving digital entities and the immutable nature of non-digital static objects, such as a chair, a painting, or a photograph. These stable entities remain untethered from the need to adapt, transform, or update, embodying what appears to be resolute permanence when compared to the digital realm. Throughout my personal journey, I have often contemplated the delicate balance between the fluidity of the digital world and the unwavering stability of the physical realm. In essence, the portrait represents my yearning for enduring stability amidst the perpetual flux of change.
