Aithō, je brûle
“Aithō, am I burning?” is a photographic tale depicting the disappearance of a human figure in the vastness of volcanic landscapes. This tale introduces intimate existential questionings I had following an experience of derealization during my youth. Derealization is a dissociative disorder characterized by a feeling of exteriority to the world and to one's own body. I thus translate mental landscapes by playing with scales, textures’ flatness and climatic variations offered by Mount Etna. Lost in these endless and misty landscapes, the human figure ends up sinking into the depths of this basaltic land, transforming himself into lava.
