YOUR PARALLEL LIFE IS AT YOUR PALM

I asked my Facebook Friends to send me a photo of their hand through whatsapp, including its dimensions and the 3 last digits of their id number. I then drew each hand, editing the fingers and accentuating the palm lines, which reflect, according to palmistry tradition, our identity and destiny. Finally, I drew a straight line from the beginning of the line of life to its end, in other words, a new palm line.

This line, the line of the parallel life, symbolises the alter ego and a simultaneous reality, existing on the side of the one we know and inhabit every day. This work intends to interrogate the viewer on their own parallel universe, composed by a collection of dreams and events that are yet to be.

It also references quantum physics, which suggests that matter can inhabit two different places at the same time. This scientific proposition opened the possibility of multiple and parallel existences, a concept that would have been unthinkable previously. In summary, there is one self or there are other selves living in other dimensions.

The Parallel Life is a concept that may seem diffuse or even impossible, but suggests the hopeful act of realising that in the parallel life everything is possible. And this parallel life is within reach and not restricted to the realm of dream.
