Thoughts, ideas, perceptions and emotions can be conveyed through tools capable of leaving a trace of our experience on this Earth. All this happens in a more or less conscious, rationalized and programmed action, as we communicate our way of being in the world and our way of perceiving it. Signs, traces, images and stories convey here a meaning of explicit opening up, and the more personal and intimate side of the narrator emerges from it, with the aim of creating a communication channel and therefore a channeling of knowledge, empathy and union with others. All this being useful also for the sole work of introspection and self-analysis. As many artists have shown from the end of the 19th century to today - from painting to photography - the media adopted by art prove to be useful for this purpose.
