Have we ever wondered how many contradictory thoughts we have in a day? How often do our thoughts contradict our actions? How often do our feelings oppose our principles and beliefs? Can we live together knowing that we are more than one? It is easy to get lost in the non-acceptance of our internal contradictions and those of others.

I Am A Problem addresses the theme of contradiction and the complexity and restlessness of the human mind. Without claiming to understand the origin of the many contradictions that are part of human nature, the creation is intended to be a physical and emotional representation of the flow of contradictory thoughts that constantly pass through us, to embark on an introspective journey in which the observers can partially see themselves.
