The Ego Child was created for the exhibition Summer Art Salon at Kodl Contemporary Gallery. The monumental work deals with the theme of the self. The craft-intensive hanging object was fused using a special technique. It is printed with a method of embossing dating back to the Middle Ages. It can serve as a wall lamp on which we can recognize a human face. The object is covered with inscriptions such as "ego race", "ultra fragile man", "bare ego" or "hot girls cold beer"- thus referring to the issue of the ego. By layering the glass, the artist achieves a drawing of the human face and also refers to the layered and ambiguous nature of the human personality, which is formed by the layers of experience, social formation, and upbringing.
