Chronicles of the Ego explores how the mental construct of the 'self' perceives and interacts with the external world. A strong ego can help achieve our goals but when we experience insecurity, self-doubt or anger, the ego can project a false sense of truth. The main motif materialises slowly; imitating how the ego can accidentally create a tunnel vision of reality. Imagining the monologue in your head as a radio broadcast, something that you can either believe or not, will free you from negativity and allow you to see the many different truths and ways of thinking that exist in the world.
