protrahere

I would call myself "me."
I want to be "me."
I will present myself as "me".
I will let the "I" come out in me.
I'm going to make others think I'm „me“ … and you will see!

A hybrid form of self-portrait examined and reflected over a period of time, which raises a question of intimacy. Which self is shown? It's about revealing something, creating something. The decision to represent oneself can lead to a so-called "state of grace". Thus, protrahere has the feeling of pulling out, self-revealing, prolonging, or bringing to the light.
