A psychological exploration of the myth. “The past of every form and way of life, of cultures that formerly lay right next to or top of each other, now flows into “modern souls”; our drives now run back everywhere; we ourselves are kind of chaos.” “Beyond Good and Evil”_ Nietzsche "Become what you are by learning who you are" Pindar.
This project represents, through the classic myth of Narcissus, the struggle of the individual towards the fundamental knowledge of his/her existence, the base and the vital psychic engine and the dangers of the essential search.
The project has been created with the aim of enabling three different readings.
1. The myth of Narcissus as a metaphor for the search for inner individual knowledge.
2. Narcissism as a human psychological basis.
3. The pathology of narcissistic disorder and internal suffering.
The classic myth of Narcissus represented in traditional arts, depict a character from an external perspective, which maintains distance from the viewer.
Narcissus is a metaphor for certain shared aspects of human experience.
The present project aims to show these shared similarities, for this, the new Narcissus begins his journey from the traditional representation towards a psychological immersion in the different phases of struggle, suffering and possible personal self-transformation, deductible from the classic myth and the different contemporary psychological theories.
A compendium of ideas combined with several possible exegeses.
The tradition and the experimentation of past cultures, still continue to live in us, according to Nietzsche, and thus the collective past, as layers that form the individual psyche, erects the new human reflection.
The underwater images represent a tripartite internal psychological process with its different readings that establish a dialogue between traditional knowledge and modern scientific theories.

What’s more gorgeous than a sea turtle? This beautiful hawksbill turtle 🐢 eats from the coral reef allowing #scubadivers to observe the magical #underwater world in action. 💦
Chris & I feel so privileged to be able to teach people to dive in this beautiful place. We believe that the time we have left to experience a thriving coral reef is dwindling quickly by the year and the day. We hope to inspire you through these posts to learn more about the #oceans & to help us take actions with excellent conservation programs like @mission_blue & @projectaware Click & follow their profiles to learn ways you can help.

Coral hind Cephalopholis miniata with Bluestreak cleaner wrasse.
Bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus). L.dimidiatus which performs the function of removing ectoparasites, unwanted food particles, as well as diseased or dead tissue from other coral reef fishes,such as coral hind.They perform this service over certain patches of coral reef know as cleaning ‘stations’ where, through a series of complex swimming patterns, body orientation, and erratic tail movements, they attract other fish species known as ‘clients’ that are looking to be cleaned. A congregation of various coral reef fish species can be observed at a cleaning station at the same time, often leading to a decrease in interspecific predatory behaviors and competition via the tactile stimulating behavior of the cleaner wrasse.

The project “ Underwater” was born as challenge, the intention was to create something visible unusual, that could have been integrated in the town context of Malberget.
This project started in 2011 in the offices of LKAB, thanks to the manager Mats Petersson and Tomma rum Art residency, with whom we discussed the idea, and the way to adapt the concept to the urban landscape. The common aim was to create something really special, to leave a visible track to the local community, and increase the value of the town, enhancing the beauty of Malmberget.
The starting idea was ambitious: carry out images that refere to the underwater world, flooding Malmberget of water, and let that underwater creatures, come out, on the facades of buildings. Water should have been the primary element, and the meeting point of all the project.
An unusual idea, maybe bizarre, but why don’t try? An exotic see in the Lapp land, represented in murales of huge size.
What can we carry out in a town whose future is to move about, for techni-cal reasons, due to the iron quarring which is in the subsoil?I thought to change the point of view, moving on from the mining subsoil that distinguish this town. I imagined to sink the town into the sea/under the sea where reigns the sense of freedom, endless spaces, and the beauty of colours. Water is seen as fluid element that fill up everything, and brings armony and life.
Together with the Tomma rum residency artists Emilia Norman and Maria Winbjork, we painted huge murales to suggest the sense of infinity, in deep contrast with the reality we were living.
Once more, the aims was to change, through art, the vision of a specific town, and I think that in someway, despite of we were just few people, we were able to do that. Elton Kore
