Self-talk

Like an engine constantly running, every single part of life – whether human or technological, organic or inanimate – never stops communicating. The communication between humans is a kind of oxygen that we need to survive. We are, therefore, an easy target for all forms of mass communication, which in the twenty-first century seems to have no limits, no way to resist or turn it off. I wanted to step outside of the external word of endless communication and think about some aspects of my own internal communication; questions I could ask or try to answer in the ongoing internal dialogue with myself. Is this a private world beyond language? It seems to me that we are able to communicate in direct feelings and unarticulated thoughts in terms more related to instinct and desire than language. I wanted to highlight a distinction between feelings and language and to emphasise aspects of psychology and emotion in the forming of personal values and decision-making.
