"Trying to be the same as everyone else, is the leap that kept me vanishing. The world of the organized is the opposite of mine. Actually, the truth is that I am not disorganized; there is an order to my chaos. The point is that taking a leap to the norm and medicate myself, was trying to put other's order into my chaos; but instead I took an extension of the leap. When a person has already fallen, left an imprint and vanished".
As an autobiographical memory from a dreamlike state, A Problem with Continuity explores a history of psychological diagnoses. Often given in times of turmoil, sometimes with prescriptive medicine, memories are hazy. These images have been an attempt to clarify what has happened: Memories from the age of 13 of being analyzed by a doctor, to reaching a final diagnosis at age 26.
The booklet produced in extension to the exhibition, contained medical records, thoughts on the diagnosis process and images from a time of being ill from a "treatment" of Ritalin.
