Tiàwùk is a planet located in a quite close galaxy to us, it is small compare to the earth and the environmental conditions are extreme but enough suitable for the growing and the adaptation of the human life. This planet is inhabited by 4 million people and only 2% of the land is cultivable.

According to our still incomplete informations, the planet has been recently colonized and after many years, a secret source of energy was discovered: in a really small amount time has became one of the richest in the all universe.
The population, which only recently has experienced the economical wealth, is suffering a psychological disorders where the symptoms can be find in a materialist and dystopian vision of the surrounding world. This work talks about the relation between psyche and environment about inner and exterior world. According to Gestalt’s psychological theories and other esoteric traditions, we know as the exterior world we create and live is a reflection of our inner world, and that lack of inner awareness and the attachment are the sources of the suffering that project human mind in the material world. The work runs along the subtle border between reality and fiction and wants to show the extreme consequences of these conditionings. On Tiàwùk indeed, inner discomfort exhacerbated by a wrong reception of the capitalist model matches economical wealth giving shape to the concept of "economical fantasy" which disclose the construction of a distorted vision of life and surrounding reality.
