Sunken Infinity, (the original Italian title is: Infinito Sommerso) is inspired by the bipolar experience of a person who is very dear to me.It depicts both the exuberance and exaltation of his manic days, as well as the melancholic depth and anguish of his depression, two contradictory forces that act on his psyche and soul, imbuing his experience of life, exalting or inhibiting his physical and mental energies, in an alternation of darkness and light, euphoria and extreme melancholy. These contrasting forces to a lesser extent can be found in the existence of every human being, that is why I have also tried to depict my own inner travail and our constant quest for stability and balance, a struggle within ourselves that in my friend is magnified by his bipolar condition.
