Artist Statement: I ́m Simon is an abstract comment on the destructive nature of humanity. Why do we tend to destroy the things we hold dear? Why do we kill in the name of love? Humans have a dualism that is both strong and dangerous. We love to create societies with social structures, friendships, and loving relationships. At the same time we destroy other societies, that is just as ours because we are afraid. On top of that, we get greedy, afraid of losing our place and destroy our own community. This phenomenon affects us on a personal level, the international level, and even in our relationship with the planet.
