No deference, no borders, no race, color, religion or nationality will ever be a problem anymore because we are one. That is what I was trying to do to highlight the reason of all conflicts, if we are able to erase all labels and find how similar we are there will be hope to be free. In Hoo2o6t experience I choose to change my way of dealing with constraints and create something beautiful without destroying a medium I was forced to use. Producing an artwork became a conversation between me and my medium and I thought “my notebook has a soul!” By getting to know it more I found its serial number and I used it as a name (Hoo2o6t) and then decided to create an identity for a friend who is a spirit free of gender, religion and nationality, who helped me to know myself, doubt myself and free myself. By making the official papers my friend is now legally acknowledged as a free spirit and by creating an active Facebook account that helped shape its personality my friend now exists. In my effort of not creating it all by myself I made an interactive piece to give a chance for others to help shape a free spirited human being and be able to experience how it feels to be free.
