Synopsis: My short art experimental “F r a g m e n t e d” (2023) was inspired by my novel “The smudge” (Taxideftis, 2021). I seized the opportunity to recreate on my story and characters and thus by experimenting to enrich and deepen the already given material, so that it could be expanded to different levels. In a nutshell, the elements I played with were the fragments of thoughts, feelings and body, lost in the chaos of the human condition, trying to find their way out οf the labyrinth, in purpose of equilibration and restabilization. The body is used as an allegory, the house of psyche, where words, consciousness, unconsciousness, memory, experience are scattered and rediscovered in their wholeness. In this process, the deeper meaning of death is conceived as restart and metamorphosis. Technically, fragmented images and phrases are seminated within the illustration, around the center and point of self reference, as if trying to find their existential meaning by following the rhythm of life while struggling to become a complete entity.
