Today’s society is presented as a cloud of dense information, which we receive and accumulate unconsciously. All the information is stored in the subconscious making us play a certain role, drawn by the canons established by the society around us.

In this case, we are transforming our nature in the primitive sense of the word and creating a more socially acceptable identity, hiding our desires, emotions and hidden feelings. Thus establishing, as our true fictional relationships, inner remains hidden behind a metaphorical mask, allowing us to take on a certain role, encouraging adaption and integration to the environment around us.

As a result, we establish fuzzy relationships that could compare well with the fog; a haze of orders established by the “civilized” society, that we couldn’t see beyond the surface of an ethereal relationship.
