Shifting experiential contexts allow for recognition that the so-called ‘I’ exists only so far as a given context.
THERE IS NO ‘I’ is a project about identity and inner processes within the individual. It is about how strongly individuals get affected by the environment. The so-called ‘I’ melts in the constant change and intensive amount of contexts. ‘I’ is affected accordingly.
IMPORTANT: No photo editing in the photographs. No video editing in the video.

This theme was chosen by people who experienced emigration, but still keep strong connection with their home land. THERE IS NO ‘I’ was conducted during the Migrating Birds workshop in Lithuania, 2008. Lithuanian artists of different background living abroad or in Lithuania gathered in Birstonas for a common purpose – a professional dialog and common work.
Many talented artists emigrated from Lithuania to the West after Lithuania regained independence. Migrating Birds, supported by The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is a project that tries to bring those talents back, if not physically but through their works. In 2009 Vilnius became the European Capital of Culture and housed many creative events and cultural live arrangements.
