One icon is everything.


An icon is not just an image: it is a universal symbol, without time and space.

An icon represents, he says, he affirms.

“We are what we eat,” said Feuerbach.

“We eat what we are” says Marco Toso Borella.

And here is that the icon of our reality comes to life not from the body but from what our body consumes.

I say I’m vegan, I say I’m Italian, I say I’m American, I say I’m art.

I’m not. I say I am.

And I eat.

“I eat, therefore I am”.

We are the icon.


An icon is nothing.
