Piece of evidence
In January 2017 I started a new project based on my own
personal diary; a sort of game made out of small—scale dolls and objects. I
began with the production of my own self; my character. For technical
reasons, my small-scaled head and body remained detached during construction.
In two months’ time I had already worked out the body, but my head had
undergone continuous changes and was still unfinished. To make a record of such
changes I made molds during each stage of the process.
In March 2018, I suddenly felt I had made a breakthrough: I
was certain to have reached the final version of my own head, just some little
details around the eyes were still missing. I wrote this down in my diary. As I
was taking a look at it randomly, I came across an older note, from August
2017, that read: «Nothing seems to change, but today I worked hard and now I
feel I have made quite a progress. My head is almost done, just some little
details around the eyes are still missing».
