For this project I have used the idea of a game to explore concepts around the authenticity of experience and identity. It could be suggested that in Western civilization we, as a society, replicate a deeply entrenched consumerist value system while at the same time innately deluding ourselves about our own significance both personally and as a species in relation to the cosmos. These paintings have been created in the manner of a quasi-scientific experiment to probe Donald Winnicott’s theories of the 'True Self' and 'False Self'.
