At the crux of the chasm between the self and the other is the issue of subjectivity. We are all human beings composed of the same matter, the same biological, chemical, and physical systems, yet we each see the world from a unique point of view.

What is more, despite the dim awareness of our subjectivity, the individual reality that belongs to each of us is experienced as concrete and self-evident. I am interested in the moment when the self-evidence of our own experiences is challenged by confrontation with the other, the infinity of realities that exist outside of our own.
