Siren by Antonio Chicaia

Jun 23, 2020 - Simon Lehner

“Siren” is an ongoing project exploring the notion of desire, and the role it plays as a motivator for most human activity and advancement, while equally playing a role as a proponent for suffering and degradation. Using nature as its backdrop the work examines my own world, and what it is that I desire the most from it, whether it will bear fruit that will eventually lead me to live a happy life, or be my fatal end, why is it that these desires exist within me, and what is human without them.

The project was started in late 2019 and will culminate as a book upon its completion.
