Portraits Of the Self and Fingerprints “is an anthropological and philosophical study with the intention of better understanding first of all the Man/Woman and everything that surrounds him/her in order to understand my own existence as an individual and evolutionary matter.” What is and how to identify our identity in the digital age? To the point, that contemporary identification procedures tend to associate numbers with identity, fingerprints with signatures, and virtual traces with self-representations. In this book, the author uses fingerprint patterns, curves, shapes, and biological lines to question, materialize and represent the popular conceptions of the self and human nature by positing the relation of both normal and abnormal conflict to consciousness and what we call reality. This is an indispensable work for the followers of Jacques Lacan, Sigmund Freud, and Carl Jung.

The book is also available for purchase on Amazon.
