"THE PERSISTENCE OF WISHES"

Website project

Leaflood comes out of the mind of Tommaso Fiscaletti and Alice Marrollo, to carry out projects that arise from the constant comparison between the two.
Tommaso Fiscaletti (1981) lives and works in Milan as a photographer, assiduously devoted to personal projects. His work has been displayed in various exhibitions and fairs in Italy and abroad.
Alice Marrollo (1982) is an Art Director and Graphic Designer, lives in Milan where she works with major agencies, winning several awards, thanks to a personal style very recognizable.


 

“THE PERSISTENCE OF WISHES”

The Tendency to Persistence in Psychological function and development,
with special reference to Fixation and Regression.

(…)No structure can ever be lost once it has been created (although it can be damaged by normal processes of organic involution).
The structures are constantly being modified based on experience, using overlays from other structures (while still retaining substantial parts of the previous versions).

Joseph Sandler and W.G. Joffe Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic, Vol.31, N.5, 257-71 (1967)

Persistent: retained beyond the usual period, continuing without change in function or structure…
Time passes, and various events overwhelm your life. The problem is that you can forget how to listen to yourself, but a strong desire cannot be repressed. Sooner or later, the inner-child will return to collect the bill.
You begin to find a solution through the birth of your innermost desires, and by confessing them to someone who is able to make you feel that it is actually possible to realize them.
“The persistence of wishes”: a bear becomes the link between the present of adulthood, and the past of childhood. The animal is synonymous with the natural. It is essential, a true comfort through the inevitability of time.
