Top That is a work inspired by the need of people to be heard. It is about the existential need to prove our existence and uniqueness. It is about the invalidation of one’s uniqueness by the other who did the same thing. It is about needing to belong in a group but at the same time establishing your individuality. It asks the viewer to question the extent to which we will reach in order to get attention, make a point just for the sake of it. It has to do with the existential issue of realizing our existence only by the other’s eye.
