This very system is what continuously strips us of our humanity.
Human relationships that develop in our monstrously large cities often are grounded in emptiness and loneliness, as we become unable to live our lives in relationship to and with others.
Instead of forming relationships that make us grow spiritually and emotionally, we lock ourselves in our homes to perceive reality through television, media, and the internet.
In total abandonment of ourselves, we dive into webs of dubious information and empty entertainment that fill our time without ever contributing to our personal growth.
These behaviors dehumanize us and make individualism prevail above all things, above all.

was inspired by Régis Jauffret’s eponymous novel which captivated us for a variety of reasons. They are urban creatures yet their particular psychopathologies are the fruit of an obscure, deep, and contemporary loneliness that ties them to a sick and uncontrollable fate. The story follows the mind and actions of a psychopath which forced us to search, design, and build the evolution of his relationship with the victim.
This enabled us to deepen the impulses of both characters in an attempt to access the complex labyrinths of the human mind, which not only encompass humanity’s darkest impulses, but also our collective drive toward acceptance and love. We found a story that explores invisible violence within an intimate relationship, a violence that retreats under the passive gaze of society.
