The Quarter-life crisis, as said by Merideth Goldstein from “The Boston Globe”, consists in a state of anxiety and indecisiveness common to the twenty-year-old who has entered the real world, after having abandoned their family unit. This implicates the difficulty to identify and project oneself into the future, making the pursuit of emotional, social and economical stability impossible, and creating, in a useless attempt of reaching it, imbalance in one or more areas in life giving it the perception of being pure utopia. Today’s twenty-year-old lives this crisis, emphasized by the continuous changes of our era, not being able to understand where their place is and having doubts about their choices, whether they are personal or work related. All this under the constant pressure of the passing of time which unavoidably reminds them of their adult life. The work represents 4 segments of the same person, disoriented and blurry, incomprehensible, which slowly composes itself again through the person’s journey in the search for stability. But at the same time the loud comment that suggests the presence of glass, initially perfectly recognizable, and that it’s crushed by them (metaphor of the irreparable crumbling of time), becomes deafening and unrecognizable: “blurry”, creating an ideal infinite “loop” from which you can’t run away.
